The climate in Nizhny Novgorod

Due to the more pronounced continental climate, the temperature is slightly higher in Summer and lower in Winter, compared to Moscow. In Spring above-zero temperatures usually set around April 5 and hold up to the end of October. Because of the large differences in terrain, sufficient temperature differences between the mountainous part of the city and the over-the-river part are observed. In Winter, for example, over the river temperature is about 5-10°C lower than in the upland. For this reason, in the mountainous part precipitation per year is 15-20% higher on average. Precipitation normally reaches circa 653 mm per year, the largest index- in July, the lowest - in March. The average number of days with precipitation a year is 180.
