Lithuania Climate

Lithuania is rounded up by countries  Poland, Latvia and Belarus. It is the largest of the three Baltic States. Lithuania, an  Ex-Soviet nation ,experiences a  pleasant climate round-the-year. It’s a pleasure to live here with gentle summers and wet winters. Temperatures during the winters are normally below the freezing levels even while rainfall is spread across the year.

Summer can be said to be the wettest season with cloudy skies being rather frequent in this European Union (EU) member nation. The average yearly precipitation is 720 millimeters across the coastal regions of the country but it reduces to 490 millimeters across the eastern region of the nation.

The nation’s capital, boasts of a continental climate even while it is much famous for its cold, dark and long winters. Although the average temperature for the month of January is found to be usually somewhere around -6°C in Vilnius, it could dip to as low as -30°C during the deep winter. During the comparatively colder winters, much like the lakes which enclose the capital, the Vilnius Rivers get frozen

The Lithuanian summers are pretty long and pleasant. Rain is frequent and evenly distributed across the year even though mainly during the summer season, the average is, close to, 680 mm per annum. The months of May, June and September are definitely pleasing.

A drought had gripped the country during 2002 even as it had led to peat bog and forest fires. Four years later, during the summer of 2006, a severe heat wave had sort of fried the nation, much like it had done with the remaining regions of the Northwestern Europe.
