Januar 2010 was the coldest month with an average temperature of -10.5 °C.

The average annual temperature was about 7.0 °C in the years after 1991 and about 8.0 °C in the last years before 2018. So in less than 28 years it has increased by about 0.9 °C. This trend only applies to the selected 5 weather stations in Lithuania. A considerably more comprehensive evaluation of the global warming has been provided separately.
