Weather in Sao Paulo

Best time to visit

The best time to visit São Paulo is during the spring (September to November) and autumn (March to May) when temperatures are warm and the city experiences less precipitation. During the summer months (December to February) highs typically reach 29°C (85°F) but it can be very humid and tropical, and downpours are a regular occurrence. Winter, between June and August, sees temperatures range from 12°C-23°C (55°F-75°F) when it's wise to bring a cardigan or sweater for the nippy evenings. Most of the year, though, São Paulo benefits from warm weather.
