For most visitors Lake Como is a warm weather destination, and tourism is concentrated in the period from April through October.

            Lake Como Climate and Flora is a very useful site.  Here, one will find general climate information about the area (suggesting that it is never extremely harsh throughout the year), information about the winds on the lake (useful for water activities such as sailing and wind surfing), as well as information about the various flowers, plants and trees that go into seasonal bloom throughout the year. 

            For a five-day weather forecast in the Como area, visit Weather in Como. The temperatures given here are in Centigrade (units of temperature used in most, if not all, of Europe). To convert Centigrade temperatures to Fahrenheit temperatures, check out a Temperature Conversion web site.

            Because Lake Como is only 25 miles north of Milan and Lugano is just over the northwestern ridge of the mountains, the seasonal temperature variations at the lake can be relatively compared to those in Milan and Lugano. In those areas, the temperatures during the summer months of July and August are the hottest, and the temperatures during the winter months of December and January are the coldest.
