The Czech Republic has four distinct seasons. Winter begins in November, bringing snow to the mountains and sometimes in the major cities and lowlands. Spring usually arrives in April, with flowering trees and bushes everywhere. Summer can be pleasantly hot with frequent rain, making the countryside green and lush. Autumn is classic European harvest time, with cold weather returning in October.

Temperatures and precipitation can vary, depending on elevation. Summer temperatures average around 25° C (77° F) but temperatures over 30° C are not rare.
