How's the Weather? in The Luberon

The SpringMarch to May
Early Spring sees quite a lot of rainfall so March is best avoided, but as the season moves through April and May, the weather gets progressively warmer. April and May are a great time to cycle in Provence.
The SummerJune to August
June, July and August are high season and the height of the summer is very hot. June is the most pleasant time to ride during the summer as temperatures are warm and you can ride through the lavender fields which will be in bloom.
The AutumnSeptember to November
September to October is a great time to ride. The air is crisp, the temperatures are usually quite warm with little rainfall at the start of Autumn. The threat of the barrelling Mistral wind at the end of the Autumn means you should try and ride early in the season.
The WinterDecember to February
Winters are cold and the Mistral can play havoc. However, once the winds have blown through, you can be rewarded with crystal clear skies and so it's not uncommon for clear sunny days in February.
