What is the fall weather like in Vienna, Munich, Prague....

How cold does it get in Vienna, Munich, Prague in October?

Here in Winnipeg, Manitoba fall is my favourite season. The trees are not quite bare yet & the leaves are a lovely red & yellow. The temps first thing in the morning are around 6 C, & the daytime temps have been fluctuating between 10 C & 21 C, normal for this time of year here.

Winters here can be rather cold, hitting -40 C is not unusual in Jan. especially, but most times the coldest gets about -25 or -30 C.

So, we are used to the cold & I in fact, luv the winter...I know there won't be any snow while we are holidaying, but just wondering about the general temps...thanks!

Weather is similar though somewhat cooler and wetter than in your region. Expect daytime temperatures between 10 C and 15 C. Sometimes we are lucky with quite warm and sunny days, then we speak of "golden october" and the "Spätlese" will produce great wines (today we have such a day with 18 C and sunshine).

The leaves are currently turning yellow and red but not as colorful as in your region. Winters are milder, temperatures often remain above 0 C and rarely reach -15 C. As a result, rain is more frequent than snow.

You must be somewhere in the north. ;-) It's been raining cats and dogs the whole morning here in Munich. 15C, dry now, but not for long.

Thanks everyone!

Logos, I live on the prairie, so the winds have nothing to stop them, neither does the snow lol.

My city is actually in the middle of Canada & is the southern part of our province...we are 2 hours from the American border.

We rarely get rain in winter & if we do, it will soon freeze, causing power outages, many road accidents & broken power lines & trees due to the weight.

So I then will make sure to have umbrellas, yes? lol...Same with some waterproof shoes...

When you're from Winnipeg, there's nothing "winter like" at all to find in Vienna, Munich or Prague, just early autumn weather during December ;-). (Think mid-October at home) (I myself like Saskatoon better than Winnipeg. It's too big!). But Canada has become so expensive lately.

Saskatoon is a lovely little place, I agree lol..had to laugh at you feeling Wpg. is too big...that's exactly how I feel about Vancouver or Toronto & don't enjoy those places at all lol

Fall weather it will be then, perfect!

Well, Munich feels more like Saskatoon than Toronto or Vancouver. Don't ask how we do it ;-)

weather.com has a pretty good forecast for anywhere in the world up to 10 days in advance, with the high, low, and chance of precipitation.
Good luck!
