According to its climatic factors, atmospheric circulation, radiation and physical-geographical conditions, the region belongs to the Eastern climatic region of the Danube hilly plain of the temperate-continental climatic subregion of the European-continental climatic region and the climatic region of the Northern Black Sea submarine. climatic area.
The climatic conditions here are close to the conditions of the Eastern European climate, the most significant features of which are the small precipitations for the relatively cold winter for the respective latitude / the average winter temperature is 2 - 3 ° С lower than the corresponding latitude / and hot summer , during which the maximum precipitation for the year falls. Accordingly, the average annual temperature amplitude is between 22 ° С and 24 ° С, reaching 25 ° С in some places, which emphasizes the continental character of the climate. The ratio of precipitation is similar, as their summer amount exceeds the winter amount by about 100 - 150%. Spring and autumn are transient, with autumn being slightly warmer and drier than spring. Spring in this region is quite cool, which is mainly due to the more frequent northeastern incursions of cooler air this season. The annual amount of precipitation is on average between 500 - 550 mm and this outlines the region as one of the driest in Bulgaria. Here, mainly in summer and autumn, there are frequent and quite long rainless periods, some of which last 16-30 days. The trends of climate drought are intensifying and manifesting themselves in the last few years.
The most important climatic feature of the Black Sea climatic subregion is the relatively mild and humid winter and the hot but relatively dry and sunny summer. Winter temperature conditions are primarily due to the thermal influence of the large body of water and extend in a strip parallel to the shore with a width of 15 - 20 km. the region is open to the north and northeast winds, whose speed in winter reaches a speed of 15 - 20 m / s.
