Climate conditions in East Macedonia and Thrace differ locally. As someone would expect, due to its geographical position, the temperatures stay low. However, residents or visitors can always enjoy warmer days and nights, especially during springtime or the summer.
In specific, the weather at the coastline of Macedonia and Thrace is mild, clear and resembles the Mediterranean climate. As one moves into the mainland of the Region and distances from the sea and the Aegean, with great mountains reaching high in the interior, the climate becomes continental. At the northern mountains, the winter is harsh and snowfalls are often.
The temperature span between winter and summertime is wide (maximum temperature 38°C and minimum -5,8°C), while the average annual temperature ranges from 14°C to 16°C. Rainfalls are often as well, especially during the autumn months.
For visitors, the spring and summer seasons are preferable. During this time, they may enjoy their strolls through the beautiful countryside of the region, without worrying for any abrupt weather changes that can make their journey harder.
On the islands of Samothrace and Thasos, the sea influences the climate and humidity becomes slightly more conceivable. Of course, the warmer seasons can always bring some beautiful sunny days on the island.
