Since it’s so much further east, humidity in Crimea is much lower than in Greece and Turkey in the summer. Because of fresh sea breeze high summer, temperatures don’t become uncomfortable.
There are three climate zones in Crimea: steppe Crimea (north, west and center part), Crimean mountains and South coast of Crimea. Temperate climate of steppe Crimea is characterized by a long, hot and dry summer (up to +35°C - +37°C) and mild, low-snow winter (-1°C— -3°C).
Droughts with hot and dry winds may be harmful to gardens, vineyards and agro fields, leading small rivers to dry up.
Moderately cold and humid climate of Crimean Mountains brings very hot and dry summer and damp soft winter (-10°C - +10°C). The winter lasts from mid-November until the end of March. The snow stays on the peaks of the slopes (up to 1 meter thick) and avalanches are possible.
On the Southern coast of Crimea climate is sub Mediterranean. The sunny, dry and hot summer (+24°C - +28°C) determines a resort season from May to October. The heat is softened with sea breezes, and short heavy rains. The Black Sea warms up to +25°C. The winter here is rainy with rare frosts (+2°C - +4°C). The best season is fall: warm dry and sunny (approximately +19°C). The swimming season lasts until mid-October.
