Baku experiences a steppe climate characterized by warm summers and mild winters. Baku is generally a dry city while the months from October to December being the wettest months of the year. The summer lasts from June to September, whereas the winter season is at its peak from November to March. Snowfall occurs heavily in January.
The busiest season in Baku is during the summer so expect hotel and rental rates to surge during this period. We recommend traveling to Baku in September when temperatures are still hot but the hotels are a lot cheaper. Temperatures hover in the low 80s, just a bit cooler than the average 90°F you would experience during peak season. Hence, this is the best time to avoid the crowd or make a budget-friendly trip to Baku.
