Astrakhan - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It's one of the driest cities in Europe, also one of the sunniest cities in Russia (along with this). How do you rate it? I give it a C. Winters are decent but too short, summers are way too hot and it's too dry and sunny.

Summer temps are perfect. Winter temps are satisfactory, spring and autumn are too cool. I still give it a solid B. Would be a B+ if it was a wetter climate (more humid), which would make that average high of 32C in July actually feel warmer.

Honestly, not that bad for Russia. I'd rate it higher if it weren't so dry but I'll give it a C-. Winters aren't bad but a bit too cold for me.

A-. Either more snow in winter or slightly summer lows would get it a regular solid A. Both of those would make it an A+ climate for sure. Other than that I really have nothing to complain about with this climate and wouldn't have a problem living in it at all.

Not at all pleasant: the summers are too hot, and the winters too cold. April and October are just about perfect, but that’s two months.
