In autumn the weather gets colder and the average temperature is 10 °C. Leaves start changing colour and falling off the trees. There are more rain showers and it can be quite windy.
Winter is usually very mild with an average temperature of around 6 °C. Sometimes it snows and it can also be icy. There is little sunshine in winter, with an average of an hour a day in
northern Scotland and two hours a day on the south coast of England.
Probably the best months to travel in England are May, June, September and October. These months generally have the most pleasant temperatures and least rain. July and August are the warmest months, but they are also the wettest. The sunniest parts of the Britain are along the south coast of England.
Hot summers are the norm throughout1 the US, except in New England, Oregon ['Drig(3)n] and Washington (state), all of which are rainier and less predictable than the rest of the country.
Temperate weather conditions are found in the Pacific Northwest, while humidity is typical of the south, east coast and Midwest, and
very hot weather is common (usual) in the Southwest.
Spring and autumn (fall in American English) are generally mild, warm and sunny - but also wet in some areas, particularly the Pacific Northwest.
The northern states are the coldest, with severe, freezing winters - especially in the plains, Midwest and Northeast. Low temperatures in January and February in the Northwest are occasionally tempered by warm chinook winds - dry winds from the eastern slopes of the Rocky Mountains.
In contrast, the southern states are known as the Sunbelt, where temperatures rarely fall below freezing.
