Iraq is located in the Middle East. The country is washed by the Persian Gulf. Iraq is a small country. To determine the temperature of the water in it, we monitor only one locality.

Subtropical in the north and tropical in the south, hot and dry. Due to the fact that the climate is sharply continental, it is important to remember about extremely hot summers and cold winters. Especially in the north of the country, in the mountainous Iraqi Kurdistan. The most comfortable seasons for visiting the country are autumn and spring. The average summer temperatures in the north reach + 40 ° С with maxima at + 50-53 ° С, and in most central and southern regions exceed + 50 ° С. In winter, average temperatures range from + 4°C to + 13-16°C with a possible cooling to -10°C in the north and -5°C in the south. At the same time, at night, the thermometer column often drops to + 16-19°C in the summer and to -5-8°C in the winter. Precipitation falls from 50 mm per year in the south and up to 1500 mm in the northeast, mainly in the winter months (November-February).Moreover, in the summer period (from May to October), most of the territory of the rains is often not observed at all, but the humidity is quite high (up to 100% in the southern regions and up to 85% in the north). In the northeastern regions, on mountain slopes, occasional showers are not uncommon in any period, and in winter there are quite heavy snowfalls. In the summer, strong northwest winds are observed, bringing dusty and sandstorms with them.
