Weather in Lithuania can be compared with the climate of Great Britain or Sweden with a lot of fog and a great number of cloudy days for a year. In winter it is not very cold but sometimes frosts are strong and at the same time it is wet. But the Lithuanians have forgotten about very cold weather for the last ten years, maybe because of the global warming on the planet. There is not enough sunshine in Lithuania in winter. The sky is cloudy on the whole territory of the country. The average temperature from November till March is about zero. The fact that Klaipeda is the only port of Eastern Baltic where water never freezes proves the fact that the weather in winter is not harsh nowadays.
Spring and autumn in Lithuania are two wonderful seasons of the year. In spring the nature is waking up and in autumn it starts falling asleep. Spring and autumn are the best periods to visit the country. In spring everything is in blossom, Lithuanian hills and valleys look very picturesque, the dunes of Palanga, Klaipeda and the Curonian spit look like pictures painted by famous artists. September and October in Lithuania is considered to be sunny enough. At that time the harvest holidays and numerous musical festivals are held in Vilnius and other Lithuanian cities. The average temperature is about 15ËšC at that time.
The weather in Lithuania in summer is mild and rather warm, the average temperature is 17- 25 ËšC. June can become interesting for tourists due to its national exotic character. The Lithuanians celebrate lots of their national holidays in June, such as the Kupalskaya night and others. Tourists could have a nice opportunity to learn much about old Lithuanian folk customs and traditions there. A lot of tourists come to the beaches of Palanga, Klaipeda and the Kurshskaya spit in July. The summer holiday season on the beaches lasts in July and August. At that time of the year the Baltic Sea is warm enough for bathing and swimming. The average temperature of the sea water at the Lithuanian resorts at that time is about 18-22ËšC.
