Like New York, Paris weather changes according to the season. It can be extremely hot during the middle of the summer, and it can become quite cold during the winter, dropping to 32°F – 0°C. It does not often snow in Paris - if it does, it normally lasts for about a week in the French capital.

Summer weather in Paris

Paris weather in summer is hotter: it can rise to 86°F (30°C), and occasionally as high as 90°F (35°C). If you don’t mind the heat, summer is a very nice season to discover Paris, as many Parisians are away on their summer break. Both the streets and public transportation will be less crowded. This is why we love being in Paris in the month of August: great weather, fewer people and a gorgeous city to stroll through on the long summer days, from dawn till dusk. Some travelers might be concerned about attractions or museums being closed in August, but don't worry; they stay open throughout the summer. 


Winter in Paris

Ultimately, Paris is one of those cities that is charming to visit in every season. Winter has some nice sunny, cold days where you will be happy to step out of your cozy boutique hotel, stroll around the city and stop by some cafés for a coffee or hot chocolate. On sunny days, the temperature might be as low as freezing. On rainy days, the temperature is about 50°F (10°C) in the afternoon.
