October finds the temperatures falling fairly rapidly in Germany's Capital City with mostly cloudy skies and fairly frequent rainy days; however, there are still nice days here, especially early in the month.
Early October afternoons are fairly mild with high temperatures averaging around 17-18C (the low to mid-60s F). As the month progresses the afternoon temperatures will fall through the month to 11-12C (into the lower 50s F) by the end of the month. At times early in the month, afternoon temperatures can still reach 21C (70 F) or more and by the end of the month overnight lows can dip below 7-8 C (the mid-40s F) at times and occasionally to 2-3C (into the mid-30s F).
HOW MUCH RAIN?
The risk for rain increases as the temperatures drop with about 16-17 days, overall, seeing some rain. Of these rain days about 9 will have just light rain or drizzle, about 6-7 days have moderate to heavy rain, and about 1 day every-other year will see some snowfall.
WHAT TO WEAR IN OCTOBER
A good umbrella is a must, plus some warm pullovers and a medium-weight jacket are in order. Wearing layers are a good idea and you might want to bring some extra shoes in case of rain.
