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

Podgorica is in between mountains, but also relatively close to the coast. Which means that winters are mild (I saw snow only once for a day), it usually doesn't get under zero (Celsius), typically its about 10 degrees and rains moderately (everyone says that it rains all day every day which is not true). Summers... it's like in a pot with no wind and temperatures above 30 (and sometimes 40). The wind from the north usually only blows during the winter. Around the country, it's very different, you have micro-climates. In the mountains - Durmitor - last August I needed a winter jacked when I just left Podgorica in sandals and short sleeves. - Jul 2020

Typical Washington weather. It does rain, though -- non-stop November through March -- so come prepared. Summers are very hot! - Aug 2010
