Frankfurt Climate and Weather

Frankfurt has a temperate oceanic climate, characterised by warm summers and cold winters. Temperatures are not extreme and almost never severe. Summers are sunny and warm but can also be quite wet, with frequent rain and sometimes quite high humidity. Winters are fairly cold and can bring occasional violent storms. Light snowfall is to be expected and it can get windy which adds to the chill factor. The average temperature in mid-winter (January) is 34°F (1°C), and in mid-summer (July) the average temperature is 66°F (19°C). Although summer is definitely the best time to visit Frankfurt, it is also the most popular time and it can get busy, crowded and expensive. Outside of this period, visitors can get pleasant weather and plenty of sunshine in spring (April and May) and autumn (September and October).
