The climate of Aberdeen (Scotland)
Aberdeen is located in the north eastern part of Scotland on the North Sea coast. This city used to be known for its textile industry. Nowadays the oil industry runs the show. Aberdeen has the busiest heliport in the world because of the many oil rigs off the coast. Many old parts of the city were built out of granite this is why Aberdeen also is known as Granite City. Because of all the granite Aberdeen also has the nickname Gray City.
Aberdeen has a mild maritime climate strongly influenced by the Atlantic Gulf Stream. The Gulf Stream is responsible for a milder climate than one might think of a city this far north located. This makes winters milder but also is responsible for colder summers. Due to the Gulf Stream extremes hardly occur. The highest temperature for Aberdeen on record is 27 degrees Celsius. The lowest temperature on record is -18 degrees Celsius.
