Baku



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

There are four seasons here. It gets pretty warm during the summer. There are great water slide parks within an hour from the city. The fall can be rainy and gloomy, but we do get some snow and there is a ski resort within a few hours drive. - Mar 5, 2017
Like Washington DC but a little milder. Snows once a year, hot humid summers - Jul 4, 2015
The weather is very pleasant. The winter is not too long, with the weather very rarely going below freezing. The fall and spring are quite long, with summer only being hot (over ninety degrees F) for six to eight weeks. There is always a breeze, which is nice in the summer and not nice in the winter. - Jan 29, 2013
Winters are anywhere from the 20's to 50's from October to March or so. Spring is still on the cool side. Summer is hot and humid. I mean really humid. You need AC in your car and house/apt! July and August are the warmest months. I say early fall is the best. I like September the best as far as climate goes! - Dec 22, 2011
Hot summers, cold winters. Strong wind. - Sep 9, 2010
Goes from very hot to very cold. Wind like you would not believe. House-rattling, car-rocking wind. - Aug 21, 2010
Similar to DC but not as hot in the summer. - Oct 1, 2009
They have four seasons: summer is very hot but not too humid. - Nov 5, 2008
Hot in the summer when the wind isn't blowing. Tolerable when it does blow. Cool and rainy some days in the fall. - Sep 29, 2008
Hot summers, colder winters (comparable to DC). Baku is also a winding city, which helps in the summer, but can get annoying when the pollution really starts to fly (and when you have to wash your car every 3 days). - Sep 9, 2008
