Averages for Nice in September
September is the time of year when the season turns from summer into autumn.
Although the temperatures remain warm during this month, from September onwards they begin to drop, with less sun seen and the amount of rain expected begins to pick up.
September is the last month of the year before the wet season begins in October.
The average temperature in Nice during this month is 20.2°C (68°F), which can reach highs of 25°C (77°F), and drop to an average minimum temperature of 17°C (63°F).
Nice sees on average 8 hours of sunshine per day during this month.
The average temperature of the sea is 21°C (71°F).
Nice sees an average rainfall of 64.9 mm during this month.
Despite the turn in the weather, many people find September a better time to be in the city than during the peak summer months. The drop in temperature means the weather is more comfortable than it can be with the extreme heat of summer.
As well as this, the encroaching end of beach season means that the city begins to empty out of tourists, so it can be a much more enjoyable time to explore the city without facing crowds at all the major tourist attractions.
It is a perfect time of year to go and explore the city and discover for yourself the many fantastic historic and cultural landmarks Nice has.
There are also a variety of museums and art galleries that can be a worthwhile way to while away a day in the city.
Nice's patron saint is honoured, at the memorial dedicated to her, at the Catherine Segurane ceremony. For this event, a special wreath laying ceremony and mass is held.
