Budapest Hungary Weather and when to go


Hungary, with its capital city Budapest, enjoys a mild temperate continental climate, what is a consequence of its geographical position. Budapest is located between the Alps to the west and Great Plain to the east.

Summer season is usually warm, lasting from April to September. The average temperatures of this period range from 20 to 30 degrees Celsius with a sun shining for about ten hours per day.

The hottest months are July and August, thought, humidity is well-felt all the year round, and even during the most ardent summer months.

Being the hottest and thus the most pleasant season, summer will be the best variant to start for the city and there is no much difference what is the purpose of your visit, as the warm and dry summer weather will be profitable for all the plans: either exploring the city, having an ordinary sightseeing walking tour, or managing some business affairs.

Winters in Hungary are fairly short but bitterly cold ones. The coldest month is December, being frosty in its second part. All the winter months are commonly cloudy and damp, with rare sunny days and average temperatures -2 - -4 degrees Celsius. Frequent but light snow is an inherent feature of this season, so it will be the most appropriate one if you want to practice some winter sports.

Spring starts in early April and is considered to be one of the rainiest year-long seasons, with a number of showers, irrigating the city. The yearly rainfall is about 617 mm, consisting of two stronger (early summer and autumn) and two dryer periods (middle of winter and early autumn).

Spring can't be regarded as a predictable season, so it is quite hard to decide weather it is worth going there during spring or not, as you can't be sure that the weather will be advantageous.

Autumns in Budapest are foggy, rainy, and cool, accompanied by winds blowing from Northwest direction during the whole year. Thought, there are, of course, not rainy days, but if some they cause a great amount of fog. In any case, the autumn season is not the best one at all to visit the city, if only you are not keen on damp and humid weather.
