Stockholm Weather in April
What’s the weather like in Stockholm in April?
The milder spring climate makes a big change to the Stockholm weather in April. The average high temperature rises to nearly 10°C, the snow disappears and sunshine hours in the Swedish capital are double what they are in March.
Although it has a cold Scandinavian climate for several months of the year, Sweden’s actually one of Europe’s driest countries. Stockholm, in the south-east of the country by the mouth of Lake Malaren, is shielded from south-westerly Jet Stream winds by the mountains in Norway. Temperatures at night are likely to be above freezing in Stockholm during April.
If you want to see the city in sunny conditions but avoid the summer crowds, the weather in Stockholm in April could be ideal. During the day, high temperatures will reach 9°C, with a light breeze from the Baltic Sea to the east. It’ll drop to lows of about 1°C at night. You’ll see plenty of sunshine during your trip to Stockholm in April, with as much as eight hours each day from a huge 15 hours of daylight. UV and humidity levels are low, like they are all year, and there’s also a very moderate UV index in the city. April’s one of Stockholm’s drier months, with just 30mm of rainfall expected.
