Daily maximum temperatures

The highest daytime temperatures in the Kosovo are reached in August with an average of 33.3 °C. The coldest month, on the other hand, is January, with an average of just 5.1 °C. In the United States, July is the warmest month, with 30.8 °C. There, it is coolest in January with an average of 6.0 °C.

Night time lows

At night, it cools down to varying degrees depending on the country and altitude. In the Kosovo, temperatures drop as low as -1.8 °C in January. The warmest nights are in July at 18.2 °C. In the United States, it is coolest at night in January at -4.2 °C and warmest in July at 18.8 °C. This corresponds to a cooling of 6.9 to 15.2 °C in the Kosovo and 9.8 to 12.5 °C in the United States.

Rain days per month

By definition, a rain day is a day on which at least 0.1 liters of precipitation per m² fall. This corresponds to a 1 square meter puddle in which the water stands 0.1 mm high — insofar as the water does not seep away or evaporate. So it does not have to rain all day long. January brings the most rainy days (9.6) in the Kosovo. With an average of only 2.4 days, August is the friendliest. In the United States, it rains most often in May with 8.3 days.

Precipitation amount per day

Depending on the season and the location of a country, the wind brings a varying amount of water with it. As a rule, the water evaporating in the oceans is absorbed and then transported inland. The greatest amount of rain (hail or dew are also forms of precipitation) in the Kosovo occurs in June, when about 1.9 liters per square meter fall per day. In the United States, the average amount of precipitation ranges from 1.9 liters per day in January to 3.1 in June. However, these are average values. If you consider that there are only 7.9 rainy days in the United States in June, each of them accounts for about 11.6 liters.

Sunshine hours per day

With 2,628 hours of sunshine per year, the United States is in the lead. The most hours of sunshine (9.7 per day) are in July. The Kosovo falls into second place with only 2,336 hours. There the sun is visible in January for only 2.5 hours per day, so not hidden behind clouds.
