The climate of Hungary is continental, influenced by three main factors: the Eastern-European continental, the Western-European oceanic and the Mediterranean influence. Spring starts in early April and is accompanied by lots of showers. The summers are quite warm, often above 30-35°C. Spring and early summer can be the wettest time of the year but the rain tends to come in bursts and during a rainy spell there can be heavy thundershowers. May is a gorgeous month to visit Budapest. Rain showers become more frequent, though so warm days can suddenly seem colder if cloudy skies and drizzly weather prevails. The average May temperature is between 17ºC / 63ºF and 22ºC / 72ºF. An umbrella and all-weather shoes are advised.
