The climate of Hungary is continental, influenced by three main factors: the Eastern-European continental, the Western-European oceanic and the Mediterranean influence. Spring starts in early April and is accompanied by lots of showers. The summers are quite warm, often above 30-35°C. Spring and early summer can be the wettest time of the year but the rain tends to come in bursts and during a rainy spell there can be heavy thundershowers. The average 9-10 hours of sunshine warms up fast the water of Hungary's greatest lake: Balaton. An umbrella and all-weather shoes are advised.
