Climate of Paris
Paris has an oceanic climate and is affected by the North Atlantic Current, so the city rarely sees extremely high or low temperatures (such as the heat wave of 2003 and the cold wave of 2006).
Paris has warm summers with average high temperatures of 25 °C (77 °F) and lows of 15 °C (59 °F). Winters are chilly, but rarely below freezing point, with temperatures around 3 °C (37 °F) - 8 °C (46 °F). Spring and Autumn have mild days and cool evenings.

Get in Paris
Paris is served by two international airports.
Charles de Gaulle International Airport in the north-east of the city is one of the major hub airports of Europe. There are three terminals: Terminal 1, Terminal 2 (which is huge and subdivided into 2A through 2G), and Terminal 3 (formerly T9). Terminal 1 and 3 are next to each other, Terminal 2 is in another building. The free CDGVAL shuttle train connects the terminals together.
The RER subway train makes two stops at CDG to cover the three terminals
The Roissybus service connects all terminals directly to Opéra Garnier in central Paris. Air France buses are offering two stops in Paris (Porte Maillot, Montparnasse) from CDG with a 50 minutes ride.
Orly International Airport in the south-west of the city is served by a southern branch of the RER-B line that heads in the direction of Saint-Rémy-les-Chevreuse. This older international airport is used mainly by Air France for national lines, and other international carriers in Europe.
Paris is well connected to the rest of Europe by train. There is no central station serving Paris, the six different stations are not connected to eachother.
Gare du Nord, (10th), Métro: Gare du Nord - TGV trains to and from Belgium, the Netherlands, and Cologne, Germany (Thalys), and the United Kingdom (Eurostar) and regular trains from Northern Europe.
Gare d'Austerlitz, (13th), Métro: Gare d'Austerlitz - regular trains to and from the center and southwest of France (Orléans, Limoges, Toulouse the long way), Spain and Portugal and arrival of majority of the night trains.
Gare de l'Est, (10th), Métro: Gare de l'Est - ICE/TGV to and from Saarbrücken, Frankfurt, and Stuttgart in Germany and Basel and Zurich in Switzerland.
Gare de Lyon, (12th), Métro: Gare de Lyon - regular and TGV trains to and from Southern and eastern France: French Alps, Marseille, Lyon, Dijon, Switzerland: Geneva, Lausanne and Italy.
Gare St Lazare, (8th) Métro: St-Lazare - trains to and from Basse-Normandie, Haute-Normandie.
Gare Montparnasse, (15th), Métro: Montparnasse-Bienvenüe - TGV and regular trains to and from the west and south-west of France (Brest, Rennes, Nantes, Bordeaux, Toulouse the fastest way and Spain).
Several autoroutes (expressway, motorway) link Paris with the rest of France: A1 and A3 to the north, A5 and A6 to the south, A4 to the east and A13 and A10 to the west.
The multi-lane highway around Paris, called the Périphérique (BP), is probably preferable to driving through the center.
