Dushanbe Climate

Dushanbe is located several hundreds of kilometers away from any large body of water, Dushanbe features a Mediterranean climate (Köppen: Csa). The summers are hot and dry and the winters are chilly, but not cold. The climate is damper than other Central Asian capitals, with an average annual rainfall well over 500 millimetres (20 in) but is still highly continental and has the hot, dry summers typical of the region. Winters are not as cold as further north owing to the shielding of the city by mountain from extremely cold air from Siberia
