Though European part of Russia can be characterized as a 4-seasoned, the biggest part of the country has only winter and summer.

 

The unique feature of the Russian climate is the extremes of cold winters, which severity and length increase Eastwards, and hot summers.

Almost everywhere in the country precipitation is rather low with the strongest rainfall in spring and early summer months. Northern Russia is located within the Arctic Circle.
