Default How early is too early (to apply for a position)?

I just found out that I will need to relocate in late September. I see a few openings that I would be qualified for at companies in the new city I will be moving to.

Is this too early to start looking and applying for positions if I will not be moving for 4+ months?

For context, I am early in my career, with just about a year of experience and 4 exams passed (I will find out if I passed my fifth in July).

4 months is not really that different from 2 months. I'd start now.

Start now. Most/many companies would be willing to wait a few months for a candidate they really like, especially for less experienced people.

Let the hiring manager decide if it's too early to consider your application.

Thank you all for the quick replies. I was hoping that this would be the response. Glad that it seems to be unanimous.
