Weather Overview for Sofia
While summers in
Between June and September the city sees average high temperatures in the 20s. July and August are the hottest months with average highs of 26°C and average lows of 14°C, which is pleasantly mild. Sheltered from the winds by the surrounding mountains, there is little to temper the heat and if a heat wave visits the area temperatures can soar as high as 40°C. Generally, temperatures sit at comfortable levels.
Unfortunately, summer is the wettest period in the city. Rainfall peaks in spring and is still very high at the start of summer. It quickly decreases to moderate levels and is usually restricted to a few heavy showers each month, becoming less frequent as the season progresses. The short showers leave time for ten hours of sunshine per day in July and August, the sunniest months.
Summer is a great time to visit
White winters are guaranteed in
This is actually the driest time of year but low precipitation levels are deceptive as precipitation usually falls as snow which covers the city in a thick blanket. Sunshine levels drop to one hour per day in December but this improves as the season progresses.
Autumn and Spring
The shoulder seasons are times of rapid change. Obviously, it is warmer towards summer and cooler towards winter. Spring sees average highs creeping to 10°C in March, 15°C in April and 20°C in May. Average lows start out at 0°C but work up to 9°C in May. Autumn sees average highs dropping to 17°C in October and down to 10°C in November and night times are very cold with average lows of 6°C and 1°C respectively. Spring is much wetter than autumn with rainfall increasing throughout the season to the annual peak in May. However, sunshine levels in May are far preferable to those in October.
