Our proximity to the Atlantic Ocean heavily influences the climate. It can be windy, rainy or foggy in St. John’s on any given day—but that can change quickly to blue skies and sunshine. During the summer months, there’s always an ocean breeze to keep you comfortable. Winters are generally mild, with sometimes cool and brisk temperatures, but great for your favourite outdoor activities.
