The climate of Perpignan is Mediterranean. The winter is mild (thirteen days of frosts a year, rare snow), the summer is hot and dry. Tramontane, a northwesterly wind, frequently blows with violent gusts (an average of one day in four) and brings freshness in summer, but causes an increased feeling of cold in winter. The tramontane releases the sky of Languedoc. Autumn and winter are the times of the year when precipitation is most frequent. The city is sometimes subject to Mediterranean episodes, where it can fall months of rainfall in the space of 24 hours. The average annual temperature in Perpignan is 15.7 ° C, and annual precipitation reaches 572 mm, one of the lowest averages in France. Perpignan also enjoys nearly 300 days of sunshine a year, partly because of the wind.
Station Perpignan, "center of the world" according to the painter Dalí.
The city has a railway star for regional, national and international purposes. The Perpignan train station is indeed served by TGVs, Intercity night trains and TER in the Occitanie region.
Thanks to the Narbonne - Port-Bou line, and the new high-speed line at Perpignan in Barcelona, which was partially operational since the end of 2010, the city is an important step for Franco-Spanish rail traffic. Following the completion of the section between Figueras and Barcelona, high-speed direct links between Perpignan and Barcelona have become fully operational. TGVs link Perpignan daily to Paris (Gare de Lyon), Toulouse and Barcelona; AVEs complete this service by high-speed trains, connecting the city every day to Lyon, Marseille, Barcelona and Madrid. In summer, TGVs also connect Perpignan to Belgium (Brussels without change, via Lyon and Lille). In addition, Intercités de nuit, which make connections to Paris (Austerlitz station) via Toulouse, run daily in season and some days the rest of the year. Regional traffic is provided by TER trains that connect many times a day Narbonne, Carcassonne, Toulouse and Montpellier, as well as Marseille. Towards the west, the Perpignan - Villefranche-de-Conflent line, which runs along the Cerdagne line to Mont-Louis and Latour-de-Carol, links the agglomeration to the Têt Valley's living area and to Prades, sub-prefecture of the department.
The city is connected to Narbonne in the north and Barcelona in the south by the A9 motorway (extended in Spain by the AP-7 motorway), which constitutes the backbone of the road network of the Mediterranean littoral.
In addition to the motorway, a network of expressways radiates around the city, first built from the 1970s to connect the resorts developing rapidly following the Racine Mission (to Rivesaltes and Le Barcarès to the north). , Canet-en-Roussillon to the east, the Côte Vermeille to the south), and more recently to open up the western department (towards Ille-sur-Têt in the west, on the national road 116, Andorra road ).
In order to connect these various axes and to decongest the city center, a west bypass of the agglomeration has been envisaged for several decades. The first part of this new bypass of the city, twinned with the A9 motorway, opened in April 2013, this section then connects the current penetrating north to the road on bank, at the height of the clinic St Pierre, without going through the Arago Bridge. In a second step, this new double-lane expressway will be extended to the 42 interchange (Perpignan South) of the A9 motorway (declared section of public utility, whose opening is scheduled on the horizon 2017), then, in a third time, to RD 914 (express way towards Elne and the Côte Vermeille, section not programmed to date) 14.
The urban transport network
Origins of the network
From 1900, Perpignan owned a tramway network, dismantled in 1955. It provided urban service through three lines (including one extended to Rivesaltes). This network was completed by the plain railway lines of the Railway Company of Pyrénées-Orientales (CFPO), and the subway line
