Bucharest weather is typical for South-Eastern Europe, having a temperate climate with hot summers and quite cold winters.
In summer the average day time temperatures are around 30°C (86°F), but can reach over 40°C (104°F) at noon, being hot and dry. Bucharest weather has low in rainfalls summer, but sometimes there are short thunderstorms. This is the season for photo shootings with really amazing lightnings and wonderful rainbows over the city.
In winter the temperature in Bucharest is below 0°C (32°F), but sometimes can drop below -10°C (14°F) with harsh wind and high humidity which will intensify the cold feeling.
The best seasons to plan your holidays are spring and autumn, when Bucharest weather is enjoyable and comfortable. Our recommendation is to visit Bucharest from March till middle of July and from September till start of November, but August is perfect for sunbathing next to the Black Sea, birdwatching at the Danube Delta and exploring the Carpathian Mountains.
