Belarus winters are very cold. While the winter temperatures average -4 to -7 degrees centigrade, temperatures as low as -25 centigrade are not uncommon in the winter months and it can be very windy. There can be snowfalls, sometimes heavy, throughout the country from December to early March. However, in some years the winters are mild with westerly winds and temperatures around or even above zero.
Belarus weather in the spring and autumn is usually cool but above zero and it can be damp and rainy when low pressure systems from the Atlantic have more influence on the weather. May in spring and September in autumn are generally pleasant with warm sunny days.
In summer Belarus usually has very nice, sunny and mild weather. Minsk temperatures average 16-17 °C, though temperatures up to 25 °C in the daytime are not unusual. The summer temperatures in Minsk have reached more than 30 °C lately. Thunderstorms are quite common in the late afternoon and evening and can be very heavy sometimes. Summer is sunny and dry most of the time and a very good season for visiting the country, but it is better to come early or late in summer to avoid the terrible heat.
