The climate of Western-Macedonia (Macedonia)
The western part of Macedonia should not be mixed up with the province of West-Macedonia in Greece. Macedonia has a moderate continental climate with warm dry summers and reasonably cool winters. The west of Macedonia is mountainous (the larger part is higher than 1000 meters). On the border with Albania lies Mount Korab, which with 2764 meters is the highest point of both Macedonia and Albania. Here falls considerably more precipitation than in the rest of the country, altogether some thousand millimeters a year against approximately 500 millimeters in the rest of the country.
In the wintertime it is rather cold and in the summertime it gets less warm than in the centre and the east of the country. In this part of Macedonia long periods with frost and/or night-frost may occur regularly. In the wintertime snowfall in this area is more the rule than the exception and in the most elevated areas the snow can lie rather long.
