What's the weather like in Lake Garda in April

Spring is a perfect time to visit Lake Garda in northern Italy, a short distance from the city of Verona, as this is the time when the multiple lemon groves which surround its shores burst into blossom and temperatures begin to rise.

Temperature

The average temperature for the lake in April reaches a warming 14ºC (57ºF) but temperatures regularly reach an average high of 18ºC (64ºF) with the average low being only 9ºC (48ºC), making it an inviting month for siting outside at the region's various restaurants and cafés and taking in the stunning views. As during the winter months, the temperatures at this time of the year tend to be slightly warmer in the narrow northern section of the lake than they are in the south where the lake widens and the landscape is flatter and more exposed.

Rainfall

Although things are warming up at this time of year, it does also become much wetter than previous months with an average of 78mm of rain falling. Despite the increased amount of rain, the number of rainy days remains fairly consistent with those in March, both with an average of 10 rainy days, and the chance of experiencing a rainy day is still only 39%. This implies that this month you are more likely to experience heavier showers than the previous month in which an average of only 35mm of rain falls.

Sunshine Hours

It is worth bearing in mind that the number of hours of sunshine increases this month to 9 and there is a 29% chance of a sunny day, making it ideal sightseeing weather, so just make sure that you keep up to date with the weather forecast. You are also 14% likely to experience a day which is cloudy but without any rainfall, in which case the warmer temperatures will make it feel quite pleasant and more conducive to the wide range of outdoor activities.

Wind

The wind this month will not cause any problems if you are out and about enjoying some recreational activities on the lake, with only a 5% chance of you experiencing a windy day.
