Weather in Bucharest

Bucharest has a temperate continental climate with four distinct seasons.

Spring (April to May) is short and often starts in April, but this is one of the best times to visit Bucharest as temperatures are relatively mild, averaging 17°C (63°F) in May. This season is also chock-a-block with festivals and events, including Rokolectiv electronic music festival and EUROPAfest music festival.

Summer (June to August) is peak season, with warm days but also a great deal of rain so pack an umbrella with you. Temperatures often reach 30°C (86°F) in August so do check if the hotel you're staying has air conditioning.

Autumn (September to November) is pleasant. The average high is 25°C (77°F) in September while October is the driest month. Temperatures drop sharply by November though, often lowering to 1°C (34°F) in the evenings.

Winter (December to March) is long and snowy. January is the coldest month, with an average high of 2°C (36°F) and temperatures often plummeting to -5°C (23°F).
