Climate Overview

Kiev and Ukraine have a humid continental climate, characterised by large seasonal temperature differences, with harsh winters and fairly hot summers. Spring and autumn are brief but pleasant.

If good weather is important to you, a visit between May and mid-October is a good choice. May is particularly nice. It’s not too hot, the flowers are in blossom, and the city and its people begin to wake up from the winter.

The warmest months are typically June, July and August with average temperatures in the range of 18 to 19 °C. If you plan to stay during these months, it’s a good idea to ensure your accommodation has air conditioning.

The coldest months are December, January, and February with average temperatures ranging from -2 to -4 °C. Snow cover normally lasts from late November until the end of March.

Comments and Additional Information

  1. Are there ever hurricanes in Ukraine?

    • I’m no expert on climate but I believe hurricanes certain conditions to form that are only present in large bodies of water such as the Atlantic and Pacific. Kiev certainly doesn’t have hurricanes. I recall Odessa has experienced a few fairly serious storms, but I doubt they could be classified as hurricanes.

    • No. Only tropical heat, humidity and open water make a hurricane. It feeds off all three and travels thousands of miles to build its strength. Once it hits land it weaken and becomes pouring rain that sits and usually floods out the coast.
