The average temperature in summer is about 11C (52F) and the average in the winter is about 3C (37F). The temperature seldom falls below freezing because of the gulf stream drift. It can seem colder though if it's wet and stormy and yes, it can be "damp" here as is to be expected for islands in the North Atlantic. The weather is very changeable and you can often experience many different kinds of weather in one day. There are also periods of calm clear weather when you really can see for miles.
