Рис. \(1\). British weather
It's a common stereotype that there's always raining in the UK. Well, it's raining often, but not more frequently than in other countries in Europe. It's Gulf Stream — warm and swift current — that makes all the difference. The climate is humid and mild, which is very good for vegetation.
The temperature usually is between \(6\) below zero and \(24\) above zero. It's very rarely freezing. Not all parts of the UK have the same climate. The south-east has warm and dry climate in the summer and a cold and dry climate in the winter. North-west of England, has cooler temperatures and more rainfall throughout the year.
Because of mild climate people sometimes are not ready for higher or lower temperatures. It happens rarely, but if it does, everyday life seems to be a bit shaken. A little more snow and the roads are jammed, a bit of hot temperature above \(30\) — people are glued to their air conditioners.
Changeable climate is responsible for all the jokes about British weather. Even if it's a sunny day, don't take chances, take an umbrella!
Humid climate without extremes is very good for plants, trees and flowers and that's the reason the whole island is very green and British people love gardening so much.
