Romania longterm forecast

Owing to its distance from the open sea and position on the southeastern portion of the European continent, Romania has a climate that is transitional between temperate and continental, with four distinct seasons. The average annual temperature is 11 C (52 F) in the south and 8 C (46 F) in the north. The extreme recorded temperatures were 44.5 C (112.1 F) at Ion Sion in 1951 and −38.5 C (−37.3 F) at Bod in 1942.

Spring is pleasant with cool mornings and nights and warm days. Summers are generally very warm to hot, with summer (June to August) average maximum temperatures in Bucharest rising to 28 C (82 F), and temperatures over 35 C (95 F) fairly common in the lower-lying areas of the country. Minima in Bucharest and other lower-lying areas are around 16 C (61 F). Autumn is dry and cool, with fields and trees producing colorful foliage. Winters can be cold, with average maxima even in lower-lying areas reaching no more than 2 C (36 F) and below −15 C (5 F) in the highest mountains.

Precipitation is average with over 750 mm (30 in) per year only on the highest western mountainsmuch of it falling as snow, which allows for an extensive skiing industry. In the south-central parts of the country (around Bucharest) the level of precipitation drops to around 600 mm (24 in), while in the Danube Delta, rainfall levels are very low, and average only around 370 mm. Because of Romania's geographic location, respectively the regional orographic peculiarities, there exists a varied range of local winds.

Humid winds from the northwest are most common, but often the drier winds from the northeast are strongest. A hot southwesterly wind, the austru, blows over western Romania, particularly in summer. In winter, cold and dense air masses encircle the eastern portions of the country, with the cold northeasterly known as the crivț blowing in from the Russian Plain, and oceanic air masses from the Azores, in the west, bring rain and mitigate the severity of the cold. Other wind types present locally are nemirul, black wind, foehn, bltrețul, zephyr, cosava etc. Romania enjoys four seasons, though there is a rapid transition from winter to summer. Autumn is frequently longer, with dry warm weather from September to late November.
