The Weather

ballade famille soleil ciel bleuThe department benefits from a mild and somewhat humid climate, dominated by the influence of westerly Atlantic winds, which help to distinguish it from its cousins in the Auvergne.
With this, depending on the specific geographic features, the Bourbonnais countryside provides significant diversity: the flat, low altitude of the riverside plains and the Bourbonnais Sologne region; the more hilly areas in the centre of the department with average altitude between 300 and 600 metres; or the semi-mountainous region to the south around la Combraille and le Forez, between 700 and 1,200 metres. Maximum rainfall occurs in June and October, with a minimum in January-February, and recorded averages as follows: 694 millimetres in Montluçon (altitude 207 metres); 763 mm in Moulins (245 m.); 778 mm in Vichy (251 m.); 791 mm in Lapalisse (285 m.); and close to 1,200 mm in l’Assise (1,050 m.).
The prevailing Atlantic winds are, as noted, usually westerly, north-westerly or south-westerly. And the local relief, especially in the valleys of the Cher and the Allier, also give rise to a south-north air stream. According to the records kept by the weather station at Vichy-Charmeil, the average number of hours of sunshine for the period 1971 - 2000 was 1,800 per year.
