Our family is usually lucky with the weather. Everywhere we go we seem to attract the sun.
But as much as we love the blue skies of the warmer places, we appreciate the changing of the seasons and the moderate Ljubljana weather.
Of course, while living in Slovenia we’ve had a chance to witness some extreme weather during the years. Sizzling heat, icy cold days, hurricane winds, snow blizzards, torrential rain, hail, sleet, floods… even waterspout tornados, called trombas, out on the Slovenian sea.
Luckily the extreme weather usually stays away from Ljubljana and mostly happen in the area between the Alps and the Adriatic sea.
If you are visiting Ljubljana in the next days, here is the current weather in Ljubljana… (For your longer term travel needs, please see my month-by-month Ljubljana weather forecast below.)
Statistics show (and we feel it on our skin) that Ljubljana weather is getting warmer and sunnier. Mean annual temperatures in the last years were warmer than long-term averages. The last couple of years rank among a few warmest ever.
And to the delight of us residents and—I think even more so to the visitors of our city—Ljubljana has seen well over 2000 hours of sun per year in the recent years. That’s almost one third over the long-term average! And about 500 hours per year more than London, for instance…
This is Ljubljana Weather in August
Moderate weather in Ljubljana is great for traveling year round. Flights to Ljubljana Airport rarely get cancelled and the roads are well maintained in winter.
Ljubljana weather can get hot but never sticky hot. The city is green and in the shade of the trees higher temperatures feel lower than they really are.
Also, the quality of air is getting better as less households burn wood and coal for heating. The city center is almost completely closed for traffic which contributed to a cleaner air in the recent years.
