Climate[edit]

Most of the city can be classified with an oceanic climate (Cfb in the Köppen classification), similar to those found in the French west coast (Pays de la Loire) in near latitudes. At the same time as the city is the southern boundary of the Cfb on the coast of North America, beaches farther south as Heather can be classified as Csb, changing more in terms of precipitation.[3]
