Weather in South of France end of April?

I'm going to the South of France end of April beginning of May, could you tell me what the weather is like then?. Would it be warm enough to sunbathe? and would we need a jacket for the evening?

From Karen.

Yes to both of your questions. It can get pleasantly warm at that time of year and you could definitely do a spot of sunbathing. The evenings can be a bit chilly, however and a jacket is always a good idea.

We are also going to be in Nice in May this year and are hopeful of sunny days.

Last year we were there in mid April and it was warm enough to sit on the beach most days - about 18 degrees C.

Our apartment faces the Med and it has been hot, hot, hot through Jan/Feb/Mar this year. At ground level it is cooler but there have been so many people subathing on the beach during these months, it really is the micro-climate that they say it is.

All I can tell you is we were there end of May last year and it was lovely and warm in the daytime but COLD at night. People were queueing for inside tables at restaurants (very scarce), we had planned for our last day to be relaxing, resting on a sunbed all day before an evening flight....wrong! it was so windy and cold we walked about to keep warm. Make sure you have plenty layers of clothing to pile on and take off as required.

You may find that if you go anywhere away from the coast ie on higher ground, it's colder and you'll need a jacket.
