Namche Bazaar Weather in September, October, November (Autumn)

Autumn, I’d say is the king of all seasons in terms of weather stability and great visibility. At even such a higher elevation, 3440 meters at Namche Bazaar, the weather remains fairly stable in Autumn.
The weather at Namche Bazaar in Autumn is the best. The surrounding is crisp and clear with great views of the blue sky and amazing Himalayan ranges so near and so clear. There are least chances of rainfall and snowfall.
The temperature is favourable for trekking. November is the coldest autumn month when the temperature will average around 5-degree celsius. During the days, you will be trekking and will not feel so cold. However, the nights are colder; but warm gears, they’ll always save you.

June, July and August are the months of Summer in Nepal.
Summer is the hottest season. Though hottest, Namche doesn’t warm up as much as Kathmandu and other lower regions. In Summer, the temperature in Namche Bazaar averages around 12 to 13 degrees.
Summer means monsoon in Nepal. So, in summer, there are chances of subsequent rainfalls, one after the other. The rugged trails in Namche become wet and slippery. The hikes to Namche or the Everest view hotel will be really tough. Also, the visibility in the air will be poor if it rains.
If you are going Namche Bazaar on a helicopter, it will be affected too. Helicopter flights are cancelled in cases of bad weather conditions.
