Weather at Newquay Airport
Newquay is located in Cornwall which is the southernmost part of Britain, and therefore has a relatively warm and sunny climate. It forms the tip of the south-west peninsula of Great Britain, and is therefore exposed to the full force of the prevailing winds that blow in from the Atlantic Ocean.
Because Newquay is in a good location right in the centre of the north coast of Cornwall, the area has easy access to the A30 making it an ideal touring centre for the county. Also its mild climate has extended the tourist season and the place is pretty busy for most of the year.
Winters are mild, and frost or snow are uncommon. The average annual temperature for most of Cornwall is 10-12ºC, and it has relatively high rainfall, though less than more northern areas on the west coast of Britain. Most of Cornwall enjoys over 1541 hours of sunshine per year.
The combination of being so far south, plus the influence of the Gulf Stream on the long expanse of Cornish coast gives Newquay a very mild climate.
Depending on the time of year you are visiting Newquay and if you are hiring a car it is worth considering whether or not you need one with air conditioning.
