Climate and weather in Belarus


Generally Belarusan climate is relatively mild because of the Baltic sea nearby. We have temperatures below zero degrees Centigrade starting from October 15 and upto May 1 (frost at night). In the winter temperature stays typically around 0 to -15 degrees Centigrade. But on some occasions it could go all the way to -30 degrees C ! In the summer we have typically one-two weeks of really hot weather above +30 degrees C. The rest of the summer is between 15 and 25 C. Autumn is rainy. There is snow in the winter. And you can swim in the lakes and rivers at summer. It's O.K.
