Climate zone: Moderate zone of the northern hemisphere

The climate in Estonia widely corresponds to the German weather conditions. It is cold, wet and a few beautiful summer months are also happening. It won't be really warm here and given to the water temperatures of 16 degrees maximum you will leave your bathing togs at home. Due to the warmer temperatures the best time for traveling is from May to September. Nearly unattractive for tourists are the cold months from November to March.

Long-term development of temperatures from 1991 - 2018

In the years 1991 to 2018 there were only 2 weather stations in the whole country, which reported continuous temperature values (Tallinn Harku, Tartu Toravere). From these weather reports we have created a long-term development that shows the monthly average temperatures. The hottest month in this entire period was Juli 2010 with 22.1 °C. Januar 2010 was the coldest month with an average temperature of -12.4 °C.

The average annual temperature was about 5.9 °C in the years after 1991 and about 6.9 °C in the last years before 2018. So in less than 28 years it has increased by about 1.0 °C. This trend only applies to the selected 2 weather stations in Estonia. A considerably more comprehensive evaluation of the global warming has been provided separately.
