Ukraine Climate



The climate in Ukraine is similar to the wheat-producing regions of Canada and is characterized by abundant precipitation and cloudy skies, especially in fall and winter. The mean temperature in summer is 67F (19C) and in winter 21 F (-6 C). Although summers tend to be short, the temperature can rise to the 90F (30'C) making it uncomfortable, since most buildings have no central cooling systems. Winters are long and cold, with cloudy skies as a norm.

The population of Ukraine is approximately 52 million. 68% of the population is urban; 32% is rural.
