The weather in different areas of Armenia differs significantly, though.

In the uplands the climate gets more severe and first turns to moderate-warm, then - moderate, and further transforms into continental (average temperature in January-14C, July +10 С ).

The highest mountain tops in Armenia as a rule are covered by snow all year round.
