The climate in Estonia
Like the other Baltic States, Estonia also has an unusual geographical location: deep in Europe, but moderated by the proximity of the water in the Baltic Sea in the west (and the Gulf of Finland in the north). Estonia lies further north than Denmark and thus also has a big difference in number of hours of sunshine between the seasons. In summer, the temperature is usually around 20 °C but can sometimes get as high as 30 °C. The Sun shines a lot, especially in the month of June. In winter the temperature is just below zero. It may get as cold as -15 °C, but this never lasts for more than a few days. It rains all year round, usually in the form of brief showers. July to September are the wettest months. In the wintertime it snows regularly. You can ski in the south.
