Weather in Oct. in Budapest

Oct Budapest.png

October enjoys pleasant sunny days with some rain in BudapestHungary. Nights get colder and frost is more prevalent. If you travel toward the end of October, be sure to pack sweaters and jackets for dropping temperatures, especially in the evenings.

The weather can be entirely changeable in Budapest in October. It can be sunny with temperatures as high as 16°C in the afternoon, or see the temperatures drop to only 7°C at night with thunder and rain. The high temperatures of the summer months drop to some extent in October, but early October is still a perfect time to take a trip to Budapest. Both the average daytime temperatures and nighttime temperatures decrease rapidly in the course of the month, though. October 1 has afternoon temperatures up to 19°C, while October 31 doesn't get much warmer than 12°C anymore. Nighttime temperatures fall from 9°C to merely 3°C. The overall average temperature is 12°C, similar to April with its 11-degree average. November will be much, much colder with an average daily temperature of only 5°C. October is the last somewhat comfortable season to visit Budapest.

Budapest is the capital and the largest city of Hungary,and one of the largest cities in the European Union. It is the country's principal political, cultural, commercial, industrial, and transportation centre, sometimes described as the primate city of Hungary.

Hungarians arrived in the territory[ in the 9th century. Their first settlement was pillaged by the Mongols in 1241–42. The re-established town became one of the centres of Renaissance humanist culture by the 15th century.Following the Battle of Mohács and nearly 150 years of Ottomanrule,the region entered a new age of prosperity in the 18th and 19th centuries, and Budapest became a global city after its unification in 1873. It also became the second capital of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, a great power that dissolved in 1918,  following World War I. Budapest was the focal point of the Hungarian Revolution of 1848, the Hungarian Republic of Councils in 1919,  the Battle of Budapest in 1945, and the Revolution of 1956.
