Does it rain more in the autumn? The meteorologist answers!

Many people associate autumn with colorful leaves and cooler days, but also with rain, rain and rain again.

But how well is the association between autumn and extra rainfall true? News24 asked the question Charlotta Eriksson, meteorologist at SMHI, who sorted it all out.

Does it rain more in the autumn?

In fact, the feeling that it rains more in the autumn is not true – at least in terms of the amount of rain that then falls in Sweden.

– If we look at the monthly amount of precipitation, it generally rains most in the summer, says Eriksson and continues:

– This is because we usually have warmer air over us in the summer. Warmer air can contain more water vapor, so when it rains, the rain often becomes heavier.

With fewer hours of sunshine and special winds that occur over the oceans during the autumn, however, more low pressures occur that pass through the country, which means that it rains more often during this time of year, but not more.

The probability of rain is least in March.
