Malmo has a four season climate whose temperature is regulated by the ocean. Summers in Malmo are cool in rainy, cloudy weather, but reach hot temperatures in the 70´s-80´s (22-29C) during the long sunny days of July and August. Days in Malmo during the summer are very long due to the latitude of the city, with first light appearing around 3 and darkness falling before 11 pm (23), with light always visible in the northern skies. Coming in the summer can be great for this reason, staying out late and enjoying the "'midnight" sun is a rare treat for most visitors.
Of course, on the opposite end of the spectrum from this is winter. The winter days are very short, with a mere 7 hours 'light' at the worst point, and do not see much sunlight especially in December-January. Even so, the city makes up for it by being well-lit and the Christmas season brings a warmth and glow to Malmo. Winter in Malmo brings the temperature down to just above freezing on average. It is not absurdly cold, but as it is damp, it can feel colder that it actually is. Should the temperature drop below freezing, which it rarely does in December and occasionally does in January & February, the air clears and becomes dry. The sun comes out and reflects off the frozen canals (and sometimes frozen sound). These lower temperatures actually make it feel less cold that the above-freezing temperatures with their grey, cloudy skies and damp air.
Malmo is actually an all year round destination. However, summer is the high season as most people prefer the long daylight hours. If you are up for coming in the winter, make it a point to come during the " Winterland" holiday in January, right after New Year's, when the city is at its most beautiful.
Bringing layers of clothing is the best way to go when visiting. The temperature can change unexpectedly from the sea winds and visitors should be prepared with sweaters, light jackets, raingear and so on. Umbrellas can be ineffective in the strong winds, but rainproof clothing is the most effective.
