What is the overall climate: is it extremely hot or cold, wet or dry, at any time of year, for example?

It is temperate, with a colder winter and a hot, dry summer. We see all four seasons here. Spring and fall are shorter, maybe a month and a half. - Mar 27, 2017
Seasons are very distinct, and arrive like clock work. Air is dry. Summers are very hot, but not humid. Winters are cold. Spring and fall are beautiful, days are pleasant and evenings are chilly. - Oct 15, 2014
Continental, though not nearly as extreme as Russia. Seasons literally change when they should: spring arrives in March, summer in June, fall in late September, etc. Winters are not that bad in Yerevan; there is not much snow. Once you drive outside of Yerevan, the climate changes dramatically. There can be a 20-30 degree difference after only a 30-minute drive to the north of Yerevan. Summers are uncomfortably hot in Yerevan: head for the mountains. - Sep 19, 2011
Very dry. Very hot summers, cold winters, though it might only snow once or twice. Nice fall. Best time for visitors is probably September (July and August are far too hot). - Oct 14, 2009
There are generally two seasons--really hot and really cold. In summer, Yerevan is like Arizona--lots of scrub brush, grit and dry heat. In winter, expect either extreme cold or lots of snow, which the locals cannot or do not clear off many roads. Winter is very gray for weeks on end. - Jul 26, 2008
Four seasons: hot dusty summers but winters are long and gray and can get cold. - Jan 9, 2008
