Seasons in Budapest

Spring can be one of the best times to visit, as it brings abundant sunshine and only scattered showers. The temperature starts to rise noticeably in April; highs usually reach 80F (25°C) at the end of the month, though short cold spells with ground frost may strike even in the beginning of May.

Summers are far from boring: prolonged hot periods with highs between 90-100F (32-35°C) interchange with short, cooler, wet periods with highs between 70-80F (18-25°C). Summer nights are usually very warm.

Fall temperatures can stay above 70F (20°C) until the end of October; however, nights get colder. The Indian Summer can last for weeks with beautiful weather. November brings plentiful rainfall, and sometimes even snow as well as a drastic fall in temperature.

Winters in Budapest can vary. Westerly winds bring mild oceanic air with highs between 40-50F (5-10°C). Depressions moving in from the Mediterranean Sea can bring snowstorms, followed by bitter cold air from Russia. Winters are usually cold (especially in January) with some snow fall.
