The climate of Sumqayit (Azerbaijan)
Sumqayit is a large city in the north eastern part of Azerbaijan. Sumqayit is situated on the Caspian Sea. As a result of the Soviet planning of the industrial boom era, the city became heavily polluted. In fact it was named the most polluted place of the world in 2006. The city obviously isnít proud of this. This also causes sickness rates to be 50% higher than in similar cities. The part that lies on the coast fortunately is a lot cleaner than the rest of the city.
Sumqayit has a warm steppe climate which is influenced by the Caspian Sea. The high pollution figures also affect the climate. During the summer precipitation figures are low; in combination with many hours of sunshine this makes for a warm and dry climate. Because of a strong sea breeze the climate is much more pleasant than you would expect. During the coldest months of winter subzero temperatures are not uncommon.
