Weather Overview for Carcassonne
general climate found here is best described as
Carcassone enjoys fine summers and abundant sunshine. The hottest months are the peak summer months of July and August when average temperature is around 23C. Daily highs are in the high 20s during summer but temperatures can often reach into the 30s on the hottest days. June and September also enjoy good summer weather with plenty of sunshine and temperatures averaging around 20C. If the hot sirocco wind from North Africa is prevailing it can get hot and dry in the region and the wind can even bring desert sand with it. This only happens on a couple of days each year, but summer heat waves occur quite often, bringing very hot temperatures, even up towards 40C on extreme occasions.
Rainfall is low in summer though not unheard of. July is the driest month with an average of just 18mm rainfall. June and August are pretty dry too, seeing about 30-40mm of rain. Come the end of the summer, rainfall and humidity begin to increase, and lightning storms can occur.

Rainfall decreases throughout the season as the damp, cool winter weather gives way to the warm, sunny days of summer.
