Buenos Aires - Post Report Question and Answers

What is the overall climate: is it extremely hot or cold, wet or dry, at any time of year, for example?

Seasons are the reverse of those in the Northern Hemisphere, obviously. Winters are very dismal. It’s basically gray and wet with little sunshine for two months. The rest of the year is lovely. Summers can get hot, but not as bad as D.C. Winters are not as cold either. Great outdoor weather most of the year. - Apr 2022

Four seasons, hottest months are Jan/Feb and coldest May/June/July. It rains a decent amount in winter. Snows about once every 10 years. This is in Buenos Aires; obviously it's very different if you go on vacation to desert north or glacier south. - Jul 2020

Four seasons, just opposite the times of the Northern Hemisphere. Summer is very hot and humid in January and February. Winter is pretty mild and rainy. It doesn't really snow here in Buenos Aires. - Jul 2019

Four seasons with a mild winter. - Jun 2015

I was only here for a short time in winter so I can't speak a lot about it. It was mostly pretty reasonable although it could get pretty cold a few days. Spring was fantastic - picture cloudless sunny days around 65-75F degrees. Summer can get really hot but it's not as hot as a lot of people warned me about. It's pretty pleasant 3 out of 4 days, and the fourth day can be pretty uncomfortably hot and humid. Anyone who is familiar with the Southeast of the U.S. will probably agree that the climate here is pretty similar. I think NC was hotter than Buenos Aires though. - Jan 2015

4 seasons with winter lasting from June to September. Lots of expats avoid winter weather by returning to the States during this time with their school-age kids. - Aug 2014

Very mild, never freezes. - Aug 2011

Reverse seasons. Summer Dec-March with highs in the mid 80s. Mild winters June-Aug. Spring and fall are wonderful. - May 2011

Winter tends to be rainy and grey, especially July & August but not that cold (average in the high 40s). Spring/Fall are beautiful, summers are usually in the high 80s and humid. Most people try to leave the city in January for the beach or countryside. - Jul 2008
