The climate of Tirana (Albania)
Tirana is both the capital and the largest city in Albania. With over half a million inhabitants the agglomeration of Tirana is both the political and economic center of the country. In this former Eastern Bloc country the immense Skanderberg square commemorating the national hero Gjergj Kastrioti is very impressive. Since the Iron Curtain fell the city flourished. The surface of the urban area almost quadrupled since 1990. The number of inhabitants underwent similar growth. Tirana is situated at 100 meters above sea level on a plateau. Tirana has a Mediterranean climate with warm summers and mild winters. Subzero temperatures are uncommon, but may occur from the end of October till early May. Temperatures below minus 10 degrees Celsius are uncommon. Summers may get warm. Daytime temperatures are around or just above 30 degrees Celsius on average. During July and August peaks of 40 degrees Celsius are not uncommon. Summers are the driest periods in Tirana. July and August get about 30 millimeters of rain per month. During the winter precipitation figures of 150-200 millimeters per month are not uncommon. About 1300 millimeters of precipitation falls on a yearly basis in Tirana mostly in the form of rain. The number of snowy days are few and far between.
