Poland's capital has a humid continental climate, with bitterly cold, snowy winters and mild to hot summers. On average, summer (June to August) temperatures range between 52°F (11°C) and 73°F (22°C), while winter (December to February) temperatures range between 25°F (-4°C) and 42°F (6°C).
July is the wettest month, although rain does fall sporadically throughout the year. Generally, though, rainfall is heaviest in summer, with winter receiving the least rain. Spring (March, April, May) and autumn (September, October, November) are both lovely seasons with pleasant, mild temperatures and plenty of sunny days, although autumn can be misty.
The city experiences its most pleasant conditions during the months of July and August, but these warmer months also attract large tourist crowds.
