Budapest has a largely temperate climate and while spring arrives in early April, and usually ends in showers, summer can be very hot and humid.
It may rain for much of November, but it doesn't get particularly cold until mid-December and while it is often cloudy and damp, winter is relatively short and sometimes brilliantly sunny. What little snow the city gets usually disappears after a few days. January is the coldest month (with the temperature averaging -2°C/28°F) and August the hottest (21°C/70°F), but many summers are hotter than this.
The number of hours of sunshine a year averages just over 2000, among the highest in Europe, and from April to the end of September, you can expect the sun to shine for around 10 hours a day.
