The climate of Homs (Syria)
Homs is located in the western part of Syria on the banks of the Orontes River in the vicinity of the border with Lebanon. Homs is located in the Homs Province of which it also is the capital. Just outside the city Lake Qattinah can be found which is also known as Lake Homs. This artificial lake is the largest and only fresh water supply of the city. Large parts of the old city have been well preserved as well as several of the oldest mosques. The Khaled ibn al Walid mosque is a beautiful example of Ottoman architecture. Outside the city the Krak des Chevaliers can be found, an almost 1,000 year old fortress that played an important role in several crusades. This fortress has been a Unesco world heritage site since 2006. Homs has a warm Mediterranean climate with pleasantly warm summers and fairly mild winters. Because of the tempering influence of the Mediterranean Sea the climate is pleasant all year round. Winters are cold. However, subzero temperatures during the winter are uncommon. Summers are warm, during the hottest part of the day temperatures may rise as high as 35 degrees Celsius (95 degrees Fahrenheit). Precipitation mainly falls during the winter. Summers are extremely dry.
