  • Winter. The climate of the Nizhny Novgorod region contributed to the fact that the duration of winter here is six months. The first precipitation in the form of snow falls in mid-autumn, and in November there is already a snow cover. It lies until mid-April. Good frosts come at the end of winter, in some years the thermometer showed up to -30 degrees. But in winter there are thaws, and rain is possible on New Year's Eve. Temperature indicators can rise to +4. This situation occurs when warm air masses come to the region from the Mediterranean Sea, and on the way they do not have time to cool well. Thunderstorms are not excluded during this period. Snow can last for about 180 days, in the south a little less. In the Trans-Volga region, where there are many forests, it lies evenly. In the Right Bank, the situation is reversed - strong winds blow it away, as a result of which ravines appear.
  • Spring. The season runs quite quickly, duration: a couple of months - from April to May. Spring begins with an average temperature of 0 degrees. In March, the sky takes on a blue tint. At the end of the month, the sun begins to bake. A crust appears on the snow, which gradually melts, and then completely disappears. Only in the dense forests of the Trans-Volga region can a snow-white carpet lie until mid-May. In spring, there is less precipitation than in other seasons, as the earth does not warm up well, and there is little moisture in the air.
  • Summer. This seasoncomes not according to the calendar, but begins when the temperature reaches +15 - +18 degrees. Basically it is at the beginning of June, the number of the 15th. In fact, the season is very short - from mid-June to the second half of August. In the summer people start working in the fields. First comes weeding, then top dressing, after haymaking, and only at the end is the hot time for harvesting bread. The climate features of the Nizhny Novgorod region are such that the heat falls on the second half of July, when the temperature reaches +30. It may be that during the day the heat lasts for several weeks in a row. Droughts are not uncommon in the southern part, since there is no rain for a long time. But there are also cool summer periods, characterized by an abundance of rain. Such days are called "rotten summer".
  • Autumn. This season differs in duration of 2 months (September - the first half of November) and differs from calendar indicators. On average, the temperature is below 0, and there is a pre-winter for about three weeks. At the end of summer the leaves turn yellow, in September the trees shed them. At the beginning of autumn, the weather is quite warm and calm; people call this period "Indian summer". Frosts begin in mid-September; frost can be found on the roofs in the morning. In October, these phenomena become more frequent, the first precipitation appears in the form of snow, often along with rain. Rain and frost interfere with the harvest, so people are in a hurry to do it in the summer.
