Moray – Climate

Moray has a temperate maritime climate – which generally means cool Summers and relatively mild Winters due to its proximity to the sea.

Having mountains to the west and south west means that Moray lies in a rain shadow, which keep rainfall levels quite low.

Over Winter 2013 / 14, an exceptionally stormy season for the UK in general, Moray was the only area in the UK which had below-average rainfall. Many other regions experienced rainfall levels which were more than twice the average amount during that period.
