The climate is moderately continental and comparatively dry, with a short mild winter and long hot summer. There are more than 290 sunny days in the year. Since Odessa region is drawn out along the meridian, the climate in the narrow 30-40 km. stretch along the coast is practically ideal, with the soft tang of the sea mixing with the scent of the steppes.
