Weather in Lyon

Lyon boasts over 2,000 hours of sunshine every year, with summer proving to be the most popular time to visit. Average temperatures are around 26°C (80°F) in July and August, although of course this does draw in the crowds. June and September is less hot and less crowded. May is also a good time to visit, when there are temperatures of 21°C (70°F) and spring flowers are starting to blossom. But bear in mind, it can be wet in spring as well as autumn. Winter is extremely cold, with winds from the Alps providing an extra chill on extreme days. Temperatures in January can plummet to 2°C (37°F).
