Climate and Average Weather in Moldova

Moldova's climate is temperate continental with the four seasons of the year clearly defined. It has mild short winters (December-March) and long hot summers (June-September) with a lot of sunny days. The atmospheric air circulation is characterized by the prevalence of the western warm and sometimes very humid air masses from the Mediterranean.

The dry temperate continental air from the Eastern and South-Eastern parts of the Eastern European Plain causes drought and the cold Arctic air can cause dramatic weather changes. There are 2060-2360 hours of sunshine per year in Moldova; temperatures above freezing are registered 160-200 days per year. Precipitation ranges between 370 and 560 mm (14.5 - 22.05 inches) per year and more than 10% falls as snow, which can melt several times during winter.
