Lithuania Climate and Weather
Lithuania has a climate mid-way between maritime and continental. The weather is changeable, with mild, wet summers and cold winters. Rainfall is spread throughout the year, but more tends to occur on the coast than inland.
Summer and spring are the wettest seasons and cloudy skies and afternoon thunderstorms are common during these months. January is the coldest month, with daytime temperatures averaging around 23°F (-5°C).
Winter months can see temperatures going below -4°F (-20°C), with freezing northeasterly winds. Heavy snows are fairly common in Lithuania. Summer temperatures sit comfortably between 68°F (20°C) and 77°F (25°C), but can reach higher than 86°F (30°C). July is the warmest month.
May to September, in the months of late spring, summer and early autumn, is the most pleasant time to visit Lithuania as winters can be brutally cold. Between May and September, tourists should anticipate some rain. But generally, the weather is lovely.
The summer months of June through August are the most popular times to visit, with many of the country's festivals held during this time, giving some extra incentive to visitors.
