SPRING – March, April, May
Early spring in Estonia is still trying to fight its way out of Winter. Weather can be fickle with showers and still some snowfall and strong winds. April usually brings warmer temperatures with snow and ice melting from the sea and lakes. I would absolutely bring a rain jacket
in the spring, but I wouldn’t necessarily pack my thick winter coat any longer. Instead, bring some wool base layers
to wear under that rain jacket if the temperatures drop a bit when you’re there.
Average temperatures range from 32 to 55 degrees Fahrenheit as you progress from March to May.
SUMMER – June, July, August
Summers in Estonia are mild but still warm. Coastal areas often carry a cool sea breeze and will bring slightly more humid conditions. July is peak swimming season, so you’ll definitely want your swimsuit for a summer trip. If you’re into camping, this is the season to do it. Bring your good hiking shoes and athletic pants in addition to any other essential camping gear.
You’ll find temperatures hovering around the mid to high 60’s degrees Fahrenheit for most of the summer.
FALL – September, October, November
September and October are lovely months in Estonia. Temperatures remain fairly mild with a mix of warmer days and drizzly days. You’ll start to see bursts of fall colors in all the foliage. Jeans
, a warm hat
, and a cozy sweater
are perfect for this time of year. November temperatures begin to drop significantly, however. If you’re coming during this time, you’ll probably want your winter coat and boots.
September and October will bring you highs in the 50s, but November temperatures will drop into the 30s.
Winter – December, January, February
Mid-winter temperatures in Estonia can be harsh. Snow will start to fall in December, and it may stick around until March. Daylight hours dip to just six hours per day, and with increasingly icy temperatures and conditions, I highly recommend you pack your winter jacket, boots, and all other cold weather clothes.
Winter temperatures will range from the teens to maybe creeping up to 30 degrees Fahrenheit at most.
