Prague Climate and Weather

Prague has a European continental climate, with cold, snowy winters and warm (sometimes wet) summers. January is the coldest month, when strong, cold winds and heavy snowfall hit, and daytime temperatures drop far below zero. Average temperatures range from 25F (-4C) during winter, to 73F (23C) during summer, and the best time to visit is from May to September, for warm days and cool nights. The European summer (June to September) is the tourist high season, but spring and autumn can also be rewarding times to visit, particularly if visitors prefer to avoid the tourist crowds.
