Weather in May/June in Lake Garda

Hi, can anyone tell me their experiences of going to Lake Garda in May/June time? We would like to get married there but the 80-90mm of rainfall in these months kinda worries me! It seems like a lot!

Is it rain all day or more like heavy downpours?

Thanks for any help.

Hi, in May the weather can be mixed but usually much warmer, and you should expect some nice sunny days. Can't think that we have ever had more than just an odd shower in mid May. More often than not we are there in mid June and the temperatures have always reached into the 30's with some very hot days. Having said that, for the first time last June we had a terrific storm one morning, very heavy rain but by early afternoon we were sat out in the sun. As with anywhere you can't guarantee the weather but June is usually a very good month for sunshine.

You can never tell with the weather, May is usually a very mixed month, last year it wasn't very good , in general June is better.

here you can find the meteo statistics for the lake Garda

http://www.meteogarda.it/statistiche.php

It's in Italian but with google translator I'm sure you will manage to understand it.

I think that both May and June are good months to visit the lake Garda but I've noticed that in the last few years the weather has become a bit unpredictable, sometimes we had a good May and a bad June, sometimes we had a bad May and a good June.

Hi,

We were in Bardolino, Lake Garda from 16th to 23rd May 2009 and every day was gloriously hot and sunny without a drop of rain.

In 2010, we were there (Sirmione) from 22nd to 29th May and again, we enjoyed glorious weather every day but with one almighty storm on the Thursday afternoon (we were so glad we hadn't gone out on a boat that morning - we once got caught in a storm halfway across the lake!). The storm only lasted about an hour and a half - then we were sunbathing on the hotel terrace again..

After 18 years of visiting Lake Garda every end May/June (whitsun) can say that only had 2 bad years 2008 and 2009. Both years prolonged drizzle days with one day only max 12c (week after "Maudsters" above). Both years we went home early. Driving home over the Brenner autobahn the end of May 1C and snowing.

Last year much more the norm (high 20s/low 30s C odd shower). One can never tell though as our friends stay for 2 months every year and as is typical when we had the bad weather they had 3 weeks of sun before.

It is not unusual for the lake weather to be split between north and south with the south clear and further north being more affected by the mountains.

Thunder storms not unusual in May. Hail storms also early May.

as a prove that the weather is unforeseeable, this weekend the temperature in the southern side of the lake Garda is 29°c

really warm for the period
