Weather in the Islands
The Falklands enjoy a narrow temperature range, thanks to being surrounded by south
Atlantic waters. The thermometer hovers near 66F in the summer and about 36F in
winter. Its maritime climate ensures that it is almost always humid. Stanley receives an
average of 24 inches of rain a year, most of which occurs during the winter months of
May to September. Travelers who expect penguins to always live in the snow will be
surprised; snowfall is very rare in the Falklands! However, visitors should be prepared for high winds year around.
