Climate Czech Republic
The Czech Republic has a temperate continental climate with rather hot summers and cold winters. There are large temperature differences between the coldest month of January and the hottest month of July. Most rainy days are in the summer months. Due to the topography of the Czech Republic, precipitation levels vary greatly from region to region. The largest precipitation of more than 1200 mm per year falls on the northwestern slopes of the mountains. This is due to humid air masses that blow with western winds from the ancient world and rain over the mountains. On the other hand, it is much drier on the side facing away from the wind, especially in south-eastern Moravia and north-western Bohemia. From December to February the temperatures in the basin landscapes can drop below 0 degrees Celsius. On the mountains, even the lowest temperatures above minus 30 degrees are possible. In the summer months, temperatures above 30 degrees can be reached in many regions. The average maximum temperature from June to August is between 20 and 25 degrees.
The Czech Republic has its charms in all seasons. In the winter months, many mountain regions are suitable for winter sports holidays (ski season from December to March). In summer, numerous reservoirs offer good opportunities for swimming and water sports. Spring and autumn are recommended for hiking, city trips and mountaineering.
