1. Hot, dry summers and warm, wet Winters
This type of climate is calling the Mediterranean climate. This is because in most countries, which are close to the atmosphere of the Mediterranean Sea. The peculiarity of the climate, the summer is hot and dry; Winters are warm and moist.

It can be found in North-West Europe, which includes the British Isles, the major part of France with the exception of the south of France, Belgium, the Nederland and South Western Norway. This region has rain all year round. The summers are cool; a typical temperature of about 60 F (16 C), and a mild winter. The temperature in the winter months is usually above 32 F (0 ° C). Take, for example, London. This is a temperature of 59 F (15 ° C) in the middle of summer, and 36 F (2 C), mid-winter. Paris 65 F (18 ° C) and 37 F (3 C) or in winter and summer. The climate is mild in the region as a whole, however, frequent cloud cover makes the weather is gloomy, especially in winter. The region is under the influence of winds from the Atlantic throughout the year. This is the reason that these areas are spared the extreme cold and heat.
Cold third winter, warm summer
This type of air conditioner located in the heart of Europe in countries such as Germany, Poland, Austria, Switzerland, etc. The winters are cold, 32-F for at least a month ( OC) and the summers are very hot. For example, Berlin and Vienna, the hottest months of the above 66 F (19 C) and below the coldest 32 M (O C). The days are warmer and cooler in summer, in winter, as the British type, since these areas are located a greater distance from the Atlantic Ocean as the cold winter type and moderating influence does not reach them. These areas are also falling throughout the year, with maximum rainfall in summer, but the sky is much clearer than in the UK and Germany, known types of warm and beautiful sunny days in summer. In some areas of the region, like Switzerland because of the cool summers tend height, but the general weather pattern requires the inclusion of this type of weather types rather than the British climate.
4. Very cold winters and hot summers

These areas for at least two months to 32 F (0 ° C) in winter months and at least one of the above 68 F (20 ° C) in summer. For example, both Belgrade and Bucharest every three months below 32 F, both in Moscow and Kiev in Ukraine five. Similarly Summer Moscow and Kiev both at least one month touching 68 F (20 ° C), while Bucharest and Belgrade two months, up to 70 F (21 C). This region also has a summer rainfall maxima but the rain is les than in Central Europe.

It is customary that during the six to eight months to 32 F in these areas. A light to moderate rainfall which tends to dim as we move towards the poles. These areas are covered with snow for most of the month and during a very short summer beautiful flowers grow in abundance. This area is the coldest of all the areas listed above, so it is very sparsely populated. The extreme winter for two reasons; high-latitude position and their distance from the sea. Some areas in this climate zone is very long summer days and very short days in winter. Therefore, it is properly called Lands of the Midnight Sun
