Summer temperatures range from 22 to 26°C in the continental region. 15 to 20°C in the mountain region and 26 to 30°C in the coastal region.

The coastal areas have a Mediterranean climate, with mild weather even in winter and moderate to hot dry summers.

Prevailing winds in the interior are light to moderate northeast or southwest, and in the coastal area, prevailing winds are determined by local area features. Higher wind velocities are more often recorded in cooler months along the coast, generally as Bura or less frequently as Sirocco.
