The climate of this mountainous country on the eastern shore of the Black Sea is almost tropical in summer, while the winters are warmer even than in the mild southern Russian regions to the north. Cold spells, however, do occur and low temperatures are frequent in winter, both on the high mountains and in the deep, enclosed valleys. The western part of the country is rather wet throughout the year. There are lowlands along the shores of the Black Sea. Here conditions are milder in winter and quite hot in summer.
The table for T'bilisi in southeastern Georgia illustrates the conditions inland.
