  • WEATHER

    Baku has a temperate semi-arid climate with warm and dry summers, cool and occasionally wet winters, and strong winds all year long. However, unlike many other cities with this climate, Baku does not see extremely hot summers.

    At the same time Baku is noted as a very windy city throughout the year, hence the city's nickname the "City of Winds", and gale-force winds, the cold northern wind khazri and the warm southern wind gilavar are typical here in all seasons.

    The daily mean temperature in June averages 27.3 °C (81.1 °F), and there is very little rainfall during that season. During summer the khazri sweeps through, bringing desired coolness.
