The climate of Deir ez Zor (Syria)
Deir ez Zor is a large city located in the northeastern part of Syria on the banks of the Euphrates River. Deir ez Zor is the capital of the Deir ez Zor province. During the Roman Era the city was an important trading post between the Romans and the Indians. The city as we know it today was founded in the 19th century, which makes it a relatively young city. Just outside the city the ruins of Dura Europos can be found which was founded in 300 BC and was almost completely destroyed about 6 centuries later. Remains have been found here of a multicultural society. Among the ruins is the oldest excavated house church which dates back to 232 AD.
Deir ez Zor has a warm steppe climate. Because of its situation in the interior the Mediterranean Sea hardly has any influence on the climate here. The warm steppe climate is characterized by large differences in temperatures both between day and night and between the seasons. Summers are extremely warm with temperatures easily rising to 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit). Winters are cold with temperatures around freezing point. Subzero temperatures are not uncommon. Rain only falls during the winter. In rare cases snow may fall during the winter.
