BUDAPEST WEATHER - WEATHER IN BUDAPEST HUNGARY

Budapest Weather – The Weather in Budapest is varies greatly from Summer to Winter and also can vary considerably from one year to another. Hungary is surrounded by land and this gives rise to a rather extreme type of climate compared to the countries of Western Europe. The country is surrounded by mountains – the Alps and the Carpathian mountains. Hungary with no sea outlet does not have the warming influence of the Atlantic Ocean. Hungary is quite a flat country and so most areas enjoy a similar climate.

Budapest Summers are warm and sometimes very hot with average nine to ten hours of sunshine. The Spring and early Summer can be the wettest time of the year but the rain tends to come in bursts and during a rainy spell there can be heavy thundershowers. The advantage of this is that the rain lasts only a short time and you can get out again to your sightseeing in less than an hour.

Winters in Budapest are cold and there is usually snow on the ground for about 30 days making this city in to a veritable winter wonderland. The huge Danube River is sometimes almost frozen over.

In June, July and August the maximum daily average is about 26-28 degrees celsius. However in December, January and Febuary, the maximum daily average temperature is as low as 1 to 3 degrees C. May and September have maximum averages of 22 degrees Celsius while April and October have a max average of 17 degrees making for pleasant sightseeing.
