This knowledge will also come in handy for everyday conversations with Slovenians and help you better understand the local culture. So, let’s dive in and learn some Slovenian weather vocabulary!

The Four Seasons And Their Temperatures

Even though it’s a small country, Slovenia’s climate is very diverse. June to August is the warmest time, when you can expect sunny days and plan many outdoor activities. In the summer, temperatures can reach 20 °C to 30 °C. By the seaside, it’s usually warmer than the rest of the country, between 25° C to 35° C.

From December to February, Slovenia experiences cold winter temperatures. But if you’re a fan of snow, it’s a great time to do some skiing and snowboarding! Along the coast, it’s not as chilly, so it’s a good option if you prefer to be warm.

Spring and Autumn in Slovenia are both incredibly beautiful seasons that see sunny and rainy days.

This is what we call the Slovenian seasons:

Snowy Weather

In the cold winter months, Slovenia gets snow. While some may rejoice, others aren’t so happy about it, as it means a few months of darkness and cold weather conditions. However, it’s also a nice time when holidays come around, and we enjoy warm beverages while observing the falling snowflakes.

Here are some easy phrases to learn about snowy weather:

Probably the most annoying weather of all. You will find the most windy weather on the coast of Slovenia, where winds can get quite heavy, and we even have a word for the kind of wind that blows there. We call it Burja (Bora). It’s a cold, gusty wind that occurs most often between November and April.

Here is some other useful vocabulary:

What To Wear: Packing Checklist

If you’re planning a trip to Slovenia, make sure you pack the right clothing. In Spring, the weather starts to get warm, but can still be quite unpredictable. Make sure you pack many layers, such as long-sleeved shirts and sweaters. A waterproof jacket for spring showers and comfortable shoes are a must when exploring Slovenia’s hiking trails!

Summer is the time to get out some lightweight clothes, such as shorts and T-shirts! Pack some sunscreen and a hat to protect yourself from the sun. Of course, don’t forget to pack a swimsuit, as there will be many swimming opportunities in the stunning Slovenian nature.

Autumn brings cooler temperatures. Pack sweaters, long-sleeve shirts and jackets. Don’t forget an umbrella for rainy days. While walking through the fallen leaves and wet paths, I recommend some waterproof boots!

The winters are freezing so pack warm layers, hats, gloves, scarves, and a coat. If you plan on doing some hiking winter sports, bring some waterproof snow boots for warmth.

Last but not least, always check the weather forecast! With the right clothes packed, you’ll be well-prepared to enjoy all the beauty and adventure that Slovenia has to offer throughout the year.
