The climate of Latakia (Syria)
Latakia or Latakyah is a large port located in the western part of Syria on the Mediterranean Sea. Latakia is an old city. This place has been inhabited since 2,000 BC. The city as we know it today was founded in the 4th century BC by the Seleucids. Latakia was conquered several times throughout history. After French rule the city became part of the Syrian Republic just after WWII. Several ruins from Roman times can be found here. The port has always been the main source of income. However, tourism is increasing. Every year increasing numbers of Western tourists visit this area. Just outside the city the medieval Saladin Castle can be found. This castle has been a Unesco world heritage site since 2006. Latakia has a warm Mediterranean climate influenced by the Mediterranean Sea. Because of this influence summers are less hot and winters are less bleak than in other parts of the country. Most precipitation falls during the winter, summers are extremely dry. Subzero temperatures are uncommon. Summers are pleasantly warm with temperatures just below 30 degrees Celsius (86 degrees Fahrenheit). On average Latakia gets 700 millimeters of annual precipitation which is quite a lot by Syrian standards.
