Romania has a continental climate with four distinct seasons, including mild springs and autumns, sunny summers and chilly winters. Expats moving to Romania will be able to practice their skiing in winter, with snow typically falling from December through to March throughout the country. Winter temperatures average 84ºF (-3ºC), with the potential for heavy winds that can make the cold rather unpleasant.
Spring, from the end of March through to June, has cool mornings and nights. This gives way to warm summers, during which expats may experience some rain. Generally, they can look forward to summers spent in the sun, enjoying the Romanian countryside, especially as daily temperatures range between 77°F (25°C) and 86°F (30°C).
Finally, autumn begins at the end of September, bringing both cool and dry weather.
