Due to its location in the south-east, the town enjoys a warmer climate than most of Britain, with temperatures sometimes reaching mid-30s C during summer. It is also one of the driest places in Britain. Winters in the town can be very cold due to cold, moist air that is brought in by the North Sea and by cold fronts from northern Europe. Up to three inches of snow have fallen early in the year in recent years, which has caused minor disruptions in transportation and forced some schools to close for several days. Snow, however, does not tend to persist for very long
