Lithuania is surrounded by Latvia, Belarus, and Poland. The largest of the three Baltic States, Lithuania boasts of a reasonably pleasant climate round-the-year. Basically, its climate stands between continental and maritime, with gentle summers and wet winters. Temperatures during the winters are normally below the freezing levels even while rainfall is spread across the year. However, the coastal areas of this Ex-Soviet nation get comparatively more rain.
Summer happens to be the wettest season with cloudy skies being rather frequent in this European Union (EU) member nation. While the average yearly precipitation is 720 millimeters across the coastal regions of the country, it is somewhere around 490 millimeters across the eastern region of the nation.
The nation’s capital, boasts of a continental climate even while it is much famous for its cold, dark and long winters. Although the average temperature for the month of January is found to be usually somewhere around -6°C in Vilnius, it could dip to as low as -30°C when the months are at their coldest. During the comparatively colder winters, much like the lakes which enclose the capital, the Vilnius Rivers freeze-up.
The Lithuanian summers are pretty brief and relatively placid. Precipitation is usually and evenly distributed across the year even though mainly during the summer season, the average is, close to, 680 mm per annum. The months of May, June and September could be rather pleasing. However, sometime towards the close of the month of June, cases of thunderstorms may not be unheard in the country.
A drought had gripped the country during 2002 even as it had led to peat bog and forest fires. Four years later, during the summer of 2006, a severe heat wave had sort of fried the nation, much like it had done with the remaining regions of the Northwestern Europe.
