Conditions of sea water on beaches in France

Now in the beaches in France, the water temperature has very different values. There are locations where it is warm and comfortable, and there are places where the water is cool for swimming.

The water temperature in France has increased both over the past 10 days and over a month.

Today the warmest water in France is recorded in Cargese. Its value in this location is 27.2°C. And the coldest one is in Saint-Pabu , its value 14.1°C.

The trend can be seen on the graph. It shows the change in average sea surface temperature over the past two months.

For the two most popular locations for swimming in France, the graphs of changes in the average water temperature throughout the year are as follows:

We process, analyze and store data for every beach and city in France. Below is a table with current weather data and trends in some places of the country.

Climate in France

Quiberon, France

France is in Europe. The country is washed by six seas, such as the Atlantic Ocean, the Bay of Biscay, the Celtic Sea, the North Sea, the Mediterranean Sea, the English Channel. We also show the temperature of the water in one lake in France. France is a large resort country and has a long coastline. To determine the temperature of the water in it, we track 265 settlements and resorts.

Temperate sea, in the east transitional to temperate continental, on the Mediterranean coast - subtropical. In the central part of France, summers are quite hot (in July-August from + 20 ° С to + 25 ° С), winters are mild (in January from 0 ° С to + 3 ° С) and quite damp, although snow is rare. Precipitation falls 600-1000 mm per year, on the western slopes of the mountains in places up to 2000 mm or more. In the northern part of the country, a mild and humid marine climate prevails with insignificant temperature fluctuations in the summer (from + 22 ° С to + 26 ° С) and in winter (from + 10 ° С to + 16 ° С). The southern regions of the country are located in the Mediterranean climate zone with a higher average annual temperature and significantly lower rainfall. Keep in mind that the weather in most of the country is subjectively very different from what the thermometer shows. For example,in winter at + 3-5°C almost everywhere it’s quite cold and chilly due to high humidity. In the summer, at relatively low temperatures, it is quite stuffy. At the same time, even in winter there are periods with warm and sunny weather, and in summer, especially on the Mediterranean coast and in the foothills, there is often calm and comfortable weather. Mountainous regions have their own microclimate inherent in high-altitude zones. In Corsica, long and hot summers are from May to October + 21-27 ° С. Winters are quite cold (from + 6 ° С to + 14 ° С in the valleys and up to -6 ° С in the mountains), and on the mountain slopes the snow lies until June. The influence of the winds is very great, each of which has its own name: Libecchio, Mistral (north and west), Sirocco (south-west), Levante (east), Grekale (north-east) and «Tramontane» (northern) - and in its own way affects the weather.In the summer, at relatively low temperatures, it is quite stuffy.

France: oceans and seas

We monitor the following oceans and seas that wash the country. Just go to the page for a specific reservoir and see the temperature in all settlements on the coast.

Lakes in France

We measure and show the temperature of the surface of the water in some lakes located in the country:

Find out the temperature of sea water in more than 12000 cities and resorts around the world. Water surface temperature values are available in real time. There is a forecast of water temperature changes for the next few days, as well as historical data of sea surface temperature are available for all days of the last years.

We use data from various sources, including National Centers for Environmental Information (NOAA), meteorological services of different countries, data received from more than a thousand buoys around the world, satellite systems for scanning the surface of the oceans and seas.
