The climate of Czech Republic: when to go to Czechia

The climate of the Czech Republic is continental with well-defined seasons. In winter, the Czech Republic is mainly subject to the influence of the anticyclonic air masses of the north-east, so that a cold and dry season occurs.

From spring to autumn there are instead cyclonic events, coming from the west and south, and consequently conditions milder but wetter. Autumn, generally temperate, is sometimes variable with beautiful sunny days.

The temperature differences between summer and winter are relatively high because of the landlocked geographic location. The winters are relatively mild (the average January temperature is -2°C), the coldest month is usually January followed by February and December. The summers are not too hot (the average July temperature is 20°C), the hottest month of the year is July, followed by August and June. The mountains receive about 130 days of snow per year.

The rainfall is mainly determined by the relief, but on the whole has never particularly high. On the mountains, however, invested by the Atlantic winds, rainfall is more abundant, exceeding 1,000 mm per year everywhere. In the inland basins, sheltered from maritime air masses, the rains are scarce: in Prague for example, the average annual rainfall is 500 mm, 600 mm in Brno. The wettest months are the summer months.
