Weather in Krakow

Climate in Krakow
Krakow enjoys a temperate climate with features of both European marine west coast and more severe continental conditions of Eastern Europe. In other words, weather systems built over the Atlantic bring humid air masses, relatively cold in summer and warm in winter. Whereas dry continental air from the East produces hot summer days and frosty winter ones. So, even though daytime temperature highs hover around comfortable 20C (centigrade) most of the year save winter (when they are 0C more or less), there are also weeks of summer heat above 30C as well as winter froze below minus 20C.

Krakow's Best and Worst Weather
Christmas is mostly white in Krakow snow-clad usually from mid December to mid March. And “days are longest in June, hottest in July, and most beautiful in August”–an old Polish poem says. On the other hand, Krakow’s perfect springs fill the city with sweet-smelling blossoms from mid April through May. While the famed Polish “golden autumns” bring dry and warm weather amid rich colors of dying leaves from mid September to mid October or so. On November nights and mornings the city is often shrouded in mist.
