Weather in Nagambie
January to February (Summer)
In Nagambie, January and February are considered the tropical summer months. In January, the temperature varies between 32 degrees Celsius to 16.5 degrees Celsius and in February, it drops two degrees both in the upper and lower end. The summers are warm during the day and cooler at night. The average summertime temperature in the city would be around 30 degrees Celsius but this varies depending on other environmental factors.
Either way, if you are planning to visit the city for a sunny afternoon by the iconic Nagambie lake, this would be a great time. Of course, you need to take extra precautionary measures for the heat, but the trip is certainly worth it.
Also, note that January stands out as one of those months which is least humid when compared to others. So, if you don’t want to stick out in the humidity, it’s best to plan your short trip in the summer months. During this time, you can also indulge in a range of water sports by the lake. Additionally, you can also head for a visit across the wineries. There’ll be plenty to do and because the heat isn’t as much, you can conveniently travel during this time.

March stands out as the first autumn month in the city. Usually, it is a moderately hot month and the temperature ranges between 14 degrees and 25 degrees Celsius. You can expect similar weather in April with the average temperature ranging between 10.5 degrees to 29.8 degrees Celsius.
Finally, we have May which is the ultimate autumn month in the city. As with March and April, you can expect moderate heat with temperatures of 7.5 degrees to 16 degrees Celsius. Temperature fluctuations are at their peak during May, so plan your trip accordingly if you insist on visiting the city during that time.
If you are visiting Nagambie during the autumn months, you can also expect sudden and moderate rain as you would find in a tropical region. Rains do not last long but it still makes sense to take precautionary gear like raincoats and waterproof luggage if you are planning to travel the city at this time.

September, October, and November
If you want to witness flowers blooming at the beautiful parks of Nagambie, you might want to visit the city during the first spring month, September. This month usually boasts a pleasant climate with an average temperature of around 5 to 16 degrees Celsius. October follows suit and is equally pleasant. During this time, the temperature is slightly volatile and may range from 8 degrees Celsius to a whopping 21 degrees Celsius. The average high point, however, is 16.6 decent degrees, to say the least.

December is often touted as the first summer month of the city. This month is fairly hot, and the average temperature stands around 14 degrees Celsius and 28.3 degrees Celsius. Over time, you might witness some temperature increases, though it won’t be as intense.
Ideally, we suggest you avoid traveling to the city in December because of the extreme heat. The humidity is also high, and you will probably sweat throughout most of your trip. To avoid this, plan your trip in January for the lowest humidity or September for pleasant weather. Summers in tropical regions can get extremely intense so make sure you carry high-quality sunscreens along with other sun-resistant gear like hats and sunglasses during your trip. Carry plenty of packaged water because you might get thirsty on the trip. Avoid planning picnics in December for extreme temperature fluctuations.
