Weather Forecast

Temperatures cool off considerably in October in Nice, France, marking the end of the summer season as the city runs full steam ahead into winter. When the sun shines it's still pleasantly warm, and there are nowhere near the amount of crowds that descend during summer, so it's a great time to visit if you're looking to explore the cultural hotspots of the city with a bit of autumnal sunshine.

 

Daily temperatures drop a good few degrees from the September, with averages sitting around 18°C. On warmer days and during the hottest hours over lunchtime, this can rise to 21°C. Evenings are still relatively mild at this time of year, with temperatures rarely falling below 14°C. It's pleasant enough to sit outside, but you might need a cardigan or jumper to keep the autumn chill at bay. It's best to pack layers if you're visiting Nice in October in case the weather changes from one extreme to the other, but remember to include some suncream, too, as the sun is still strong at this time of year.
