Climate

The Czech Republic has a temperate continental climate, with relatively hot summers and cold, cloudy and snowy winters. The temperature difference between summer and winter is relatively high, due to the landlocked geographical position.
At the highest peak of Snezka (1.602 m / 5.256 ft), the average temperature is only −0.4°C (31°F), whereas in the lowlands of the South Moravian Region, the average temperature is as high as 10°C (50°F).
The coldest month is usually January, followed by February and December. During these months, there is usually snow in the mountains and sometimes in the major cities and lowlands. During March, April and May, the temperature usually increases rapidly, especially during April, when the temperature and weather tends to vary widely during the day.
The warmest month of the year is July, followed by August and June. On average, summer temperatures are about 20 degrees higher than during winter. Temperatures above 30°C (86°F) are not unusual. Summer is also characterized by rain and storms. Autumn generally begins in September, which is still relatively warm and dry. During October, temperatures usually fall below 15°C (59°F) or 10°C (50°F). By the end of November, temperatures usually range around the freezing point.
