The climate in the Dordogne
The Périgord enjoys an oceanic climate, pleasant in all seasons and eminently temperate, thanks to the influence of the sea current called Gulf Stream, whose warm waters warm the west coast of Europe. There are, however, wide variations in temperature depending on the variety of exposures and the configuration of the ground, which may be hilly or flat, open or wooded.
From west to east, however, the influence of the Atlantic Ocean diminishes. The Périgord is in fact a land of transition between the temperate oceanic climate stricto sensu of Aquitaine and that of the semi-mountainous climate of the foothills of the Massif Central.
- Spring is often rainy but pleasant, the temperatures are mild and when the clouds go away, it offers beautiful days.
- The summer is often dry, with plenty of sunshine. It's quite hot
- Autumn is a beautiful season, the weather is mild, humidity is gradually returning.
- It's a mild winter. There's some frost. Snow is rare and never heavy.
There are, however, significant variations between the north and south of the department, the north being cooler in summer and colder in winter due to the difference in altitude as one gets closer to the Massif Central. The north is cooler in summer and colder in winter due to the difference in altitude as you get closer to the Massif Central.
