I'll be visiting the Lake Balaton area of Hungary in October. I'd like to travel light so it would be helpful to know what sort of weather/temperatures I can expect at this time of year so I don't pack the wrong things. Thanks in advance for any help.

It is impossible to tell what the weather will be like in October. It can be cold and rainy but also still nice and sunny. Temps of 10 to 20 C would be normal. Personally I would not plan go to the Balaton in October, not if I wanted to swim - chances are very high it will be too cold for it.

Also be aware that large chunks of the Balaton area shut down quite rapidly after Mid September-ish, after the summer Austrian/German rush has passed. In some of the smaller places it can be tricky to find places open to stay or even eat, though in any of the larger settlements it's easy enough.
