Climate and Average Weather in Armenia
Armenia has a continental climate with dry and sunny summers lasting from June to mid-September. The summer temperature fluctuates between 22 and 36 degrees Celsius (72 and 97 degrees Fahrenheit) with evening breezes blowing down the mountains providing a welcome refreshing and cooling effect. Springs are short, while falls are long. Winters are quite cold with plenty of snow and temperatures ranging between -10 and -5 degrees Celsius (14 and 23 degrees Fahrenheit).
The best time to travel to Armenia is in the summer season. However in the lower areas it's best to avoid the real summer months, because of the heat. In that case, travel in May or between mid-September and mid-October. For the mountain areas the best travel time is the hottest months: from mid-June to mid-September. Best to avoid Armenia in winter which can take quite a long time: in November the winter starts and this can continue well into April.
