Every year in Uzbekistan brings over 300 days of sunshine and less than 300 millimeters (12 inches) of rainfall. Uzbekistan has a sharply continental climate, born of desert and mountain isolation from sea. It is expressed in sharp amplitudes of day and night, summer and winter temperatures. During the summer the temperatures expected to be above 35°C (95°F) and may reach 45°C (113°F) and above. The burning heat of summer is offset by low humidity. Temperatures in December average -8°C (18°F) in the north and 0°C (32°F) in the south, though in the extreme fluctuations they may fall to -30°C (-22°F). Winter lasts 1.5-2 months in the plains. In recent years Uzbekistan was notably affected by the global warming which turned cold winters to mild with less precipitation. Travel is most pleasant from the brief spring until early June and from September to early November. The weather is mild and in April the desert is painted with floral colors. During the fall markets are crowded with fresh fruit. Mountain areas are refreshingly cool in summer, freezing cold and snowy in winter.
