Munich's weather tends to be somewhat unpredictable. Summers are fairly warm, but can also be exceptionally wet, and a typical day could see lovely sunny weather interspersed with dramatic thunderstorms. Winters are cold with light snowfalls.
In summer (June to August), average temperatures range between 50°F (10°C) and 73°F (23°C), while winters (December to February) see the mercury fluctuate between 25°F (-4°C) and 39°F (4°C). The Alps cause two unique aberrations in Munich weather. Southwesterly winds crossing the Alps can push up temperatures markedly even in winter, while northwesterly winds blowing from the mountains bring unseasonably low temperatures, rain and even snow on odd days.
Expats can look forward to experiencing quite a variety of weather in Munich. Irrespective of the weather though, there is always something to get up to in the city, and expats will learn to love the differing seasons and the variety of activities they offer.
