Georgia has three different climate zones. On the coast of the Black Sea and in the Colchis Plain there is a subtropical humid climate. The winters are mild with average temperatures between 3 and 6 degrees and the summers quite long and warm with average temperatures between 21 and 24 degrees. In addition, there is a high humidity in the summer months. At the Black Sea annual precipitation is reached between 1200 mm in the north and up to 2000 mm in the south. In the Kolchis plain only 300 to 800 mm per year go down. East of the Surami Mountains there is a continental dry climate. The average temperatures in January are usually slightly below 0 degrees, but only little snow falls. In July average temperatures between 23 and 25 degrees are reached, often temperatures in the afternoon climb to around or above 30 degrees. The annual precipitation amounts to 200 to 600 mm and falls mostly between April and October. In the mountain regions the climate is alpine. Temperatures can drop to minus 40 degrees in winter. In addition, there is often heavy snowfall. In summer it remains rather cool. Annual precipitation is between 1800 and 3000 mm, depending on the mountain region.
The spring and autumn months are recommended for trips throughout the country. In summer, the Black Sea coast is ideal for a beach holiday. In winter, Georgia is only recommended to a limited extent due to the cold and snow quantities.
