The climate of Milan (Italy)
Milan is the capital of Lombardy and is located in the north-western part of Italy. The city has a warm sea climate (type Cfa according to the Köppen climate classification) with reasonably cold winters and warm summers. During the winter snow may cause public life to come to a halt when 10-20 centimeters of snow covers the streets in December and January. Most of the precipitation falls during spring with a peak in April and May; 100 millimeters of rain may fall per month during this period. However, when it doesn’t rain these two months are the most pleasant to visit Milan. The parks start to blossom and with temperatures between 16-25 degrees Celsius it is pleasant to stay on one of the many terraces.
Summers in Milan are warm, reasonably sunny and dry. During the summer temperatures will mostly be 25 degrees Celsius, every now and then tropical temperatures in excess of 30 degrees can be recorded. Because the heat lingers in the city minimum temperatures will only be reached during the early morning. June, July and August are too hot to go shopping. Summers in Milan last long. Fall only starts in October and sometimes even in November. During the day the weather is pleasant in fall. However, evenings and nights may be cold. Bear this in mind and bring a sweater, jacket or vest.
Renting a car in Milan gives you complete freedom in transportation. It allows you to explore attractions anywhere in and around Milan without the difficulties of public transport.

More climate information
Climate figures are very useful but don’t present a general impression of the climate and the eventual weather circumstances within a certain period. The figures don’t always reflect the chance of wintry weather, extreme heat or hurricanes. That is why we offer useful extra climate information for each month of the year:
