The Ile-de-France region gets the least amount of rainfall in the whole of France. However, there can be unexpected showers in Paris at any time of the year.

The North Atlantic drift affects the climate of Paris. As a result Paris has a marine west coast climate. The city enjoys temperate climate throughout the year and does not have extremely high or low temperatures.
