The climate of Mosul (Iraq)
Mosul is located in the northern part of Iraq on the banks of the Tigris River and is one of the largest cities in Iraq. Mosul is located in the Ninawa Province of which it also is the capital. Mosul is an old city, the first records date back to about 400 BC. Despite its violent history many buildings have been well preserved. Both in the center of the city and outside the city many churches, mosques, monasteries, schools and castles from different eras can be found. The Dair Mar Elia monastery can be found just outside the city and dates from the 6th century which makes it the oldest monastery in Iraq. The local museum offers a good impression of the history of Mosul. Mosul has a warm steppe climate with hot and dry summers and mild and wet winters. Winters are fairly wet by Iraqi standards. On average 400 millimeters of annual rain can be expected, most of which falls during the winter. Summers may be extremely hot. During the hottest part of the day temperatures may easily rise above 50 degrees Celsius. Because of the extreme heat it is best to avoid visiting this area during the summer. Winters are fairly mild. However, subzero temperatures are not uncommon, especially during the night.
