What is climate of Romania?

Because of its position on the south-eastern portion of the European continent, the Romanian climate that is transitional between temperate and continental. Romania climatic conditions are somewhat modified by the country's varied relief.  The Carpathians serve as a barrier to Atlantic air masses, restricting their oceanic influences to the west and centre of the country, where they make for milder winters and heavier rainfall.

The mountains also block the continental influences of the vast plain to the north in Russia, which bring frosty winters and less rain to the south and southeast.  In the extreme SE of Romania, Mediterranean influences offer a milder, maritime climate.  The average annual temperature in Romania is 11°C / 51.8°F in the south and 8°C / 46.4°F in the north.

In Bucharest, the temperature ranges -3°C / 26.6°F in January and 23°C / 73.4°F in July. Rainfall, although adequate throughout the country, decreases from west to east and from mountains to plains.

Some mountainous areas receive more than 1,010 millimetres of precipitation each year.  Annual Romanian precipitation averages about 635 millimetres in central Transylvania, 521 millimetres at Iasi in Moldavia, and only 381 millimetres at Constanta on the Black Sea.
