Climate

In spite of being located near several mountain ranges like mont du Chat (Jura) and the Bauges (Alps), Le Bourget-du-Lac features an oceanic climate (Cfb) under the Köppen system due to its low elevation and proximity to lake Bourget. Its climate is characterized by milder winters than in Chambéry valley but also slightly cooler summers on the shores of the lake. The average annual rainfall is well above the national average.

The weather station of Chambéry Airport is actually located near the lake and close to Le Bourget-du-Lac.
