Kyrgyzstan Climate & Weather

Kyrgyzstan Climate and Weather

Kyrgyzstan's climate is extremely diverse due largely to its mountainous landscape. Most of the country is temperate with little rainfall and lots of sunshine, but the south-western Ferghana Valley area is subtropical with very hot summers. Generally the lowlands average lows drop to 21°F (-6°C) in winter (December to January) and climb to 75°F (24°C) highs in the middle of summer (June to August), while the highland mountainous areas range from 54°F (12°C) summer highs to lows of -22°F (-30°C) in winter, sometimes even lower. Snowfall in winter is heavy.
