Rome Weather

The city of Rome is the capital of Italy and one of the most historical cities in the world. As such it is no wonder you may want to visit there. The city of Rome has what is called Mediterranean climate and that means that the winters are mild and humid while the summers are dry and warm. The average temperature throughout the year is 20.4 Celsius (or 68.7 Fahrenheit). The city does see cool temperatures but nothing near to what the northern European countries see but in the months of December, January, February and possibly March you will need a coat. Rome weather is some of the best that you will see anywhere in Europe, especially if you are planning to visit during the summer.

Summers In Rome

If you are picking Rome for a visit during the summer then you will be happy you did so. While the humidity can some days make the temperatures feel too hot, most of the time you will experience great weather. There is little rain to be seen during the summer. In fact, in the month of July the average precipitation days number is only 2.1. The little precipitation that you will see in the month in July will only amount to 19 millimeters (0.75 inches). During the day the average high temperature is 30.3 Celsius (86.5 Fahrenheit) but at night those temperatures drop to an average low of 18 Celsius (64 Fahrenheit). We at www.romeweather.net recommend the summer to anyone who wants to visit.

The Autumn

Usually visiting in the autumn gives you good Rome weather. The problem is once November arrives the temperatures do drop and the rainy season starts. Once November arrives, you can expect downpours. The weather during this time of the year can in some cases be unpredictable so checking Rome Weather.Net during your visit will help you stay updated. The temperatures during the fall, especially September and October, are great. During the daytime the average high in September is 26.5 Celsius (79.7 Fahrenheit) while in October it is 21.4 Celsius (70.5 Fahrenheit). If you are planning to stay out at night, you should have at least a light sweater with you as the temperatures can drop during that time of the year.

The Winter

Though Romans seem to be unprepared for the snow which a winter can bring, snowstorms can happen in Rome weather. The one thing you should be careful when you are in the city of Rome during the winter is walking around after a snowstorm. Some people will even try getting rid of the snow by using hot water and that can make everything much worse. Because of the unpredictability of Mediterranean climate during the winter we at www.romeweather.net recommend that you check weather forecasts daily. The weather in the city of Rome can change rather quickly and being updated is a way of saving you headaches. Rome during the winter still has its charms so you should not be afraid to visit at this time.

The Spring

The springtime in Rome weather is one of the best times to visit the city. In fact, if you are visiting at this time of the year, you will find the crowds getting bigger before your eyes. The city comes to life in the spring and some restaurants will include outdoor dining as an option for their patrons. By the time May comes along, the daytime temperatures reach an average high of 22.8 Celsius (73 Fahrenheit) while the average low drops to 11.6 Celsius (52.9 Fahrenheit). The difference is that as the spring progresses, you will notice a lot more sunshine. May already gets an average of 263.5 hours of sunshine every year. Precipitation also goes down in the month of May.

Best Time To Visit

The city of Rome is so amazing that every season has something to offer. We at Rome Weather.Net can tell you that most of the year you will have a great time. A couple of times to avoid are August because the temperatures do get really hot and humid and the middle of the winter with the exception of the holiday season. Any other time of the year is really a great time to visit, do outdoor activities and get to know one of the most history laden cities in the world. If you want to avoid the rain and the extreme temperatures of the hot summer in Rome, then try visiting in the late spring or the early fall.
