Due to the United States being a generally comfortable climate to live in, a large portion of people amoving to London from Americawill be a bit skeptical about the weather conditions in the United Kingdom. When packing clothes to take for relocation, this can be tricky. To prevent you from getting caught in the rain wearing shorts or stuck wearing a thick jacket in the sunshine, it is worth broadening your knowledge on the weather in London. By doing so, you can be sure that moving to London from America will be a pleasant and stress-free experience.

General Conditions In London

If you are moving to London from America, you can begin learning about the general conditions in London. If you have access to the Internet a few times a week, think about looking into the weather forecast for London throughout the weeks leading up to the relocation. When you do this you will start to realize times when temperatures stay steady and when they may take a turn for the worst. The United Kingdom sees around 131.2mm of rain throughout the year and during the summer temperatures can often hit 20 degrees Celsius. While this may not be the hottest destination in the world, you can expect to see some sunshine. Winters can get quite cold in London, so when moving to London from America, be sure to pack some scarfs, gloves and hats.

What Clothes To Pack

The big question that any person moving to London from America will have will be, ‘What clothes do I pack?’ The price you pay for moving companies to transport your items from your current home to the airport will be excessive if you do not be careful in packing your items. It is important that you do some research on the weather and determine what clothing will be needed. Try to take a mixture of winter clothing, because from October-March, the temperatures may dip. Despite this, you should also think about taking some light clothing for April-September, when temperatures climb slightly. Always check the weather before you head out though, because the weather can change in an instant.

London In Summer

The summer is a good time to start moving because you will be greeted with many entertaining events, festivals and hopefully, a few hours of sunlight. If you travel during summer you will not need to pay as much for a moving company to help you because your wardrobe will be generally lightweight. It is worth getting new clothing when you arrive in the city after moving from America, because you will have a better knowledge of the city climate then.
