No no, this isn’t the Georgia north of Florida. Today, we are taking a look at the Georgia in between the Black and Caspian Seas. It is part of the former Soviet Union, and, believe it or not, is the last country in Europe we will ever do in the country series. We are that close to the end of the line with this series!
Georgia has a line of mountains, the Caucasus, just off to their north which prevents cold air from pooling in. A range of mountains through the heart of the country divides the eastern and western halves of the country into two separate climactic regions. The western half of the country borders the Black Sea and gets the warm, subtropic flow directly from the Mediterranean, and thereby tends to be hot, humid and rainy, particularly in the summer months. East of the mountains, a drier but more variable climate persists, much like the center of the United States. Less humidity means hotter summers and colder winters.
Georgia does have a hydrometeorological service, however their website is labeled as an attack site… so that sucks.
