Shabats, Servia (Town) 1911 Profile, #02: Climate


The climate of Servia is on the whole mild, though subject to the extremes characteristic of inland Eastern countries. In summer the temperature may rise as high as 106 degrees F., while in winter it often sinks to 13 degrees or even 20 degrees below zero. The high-lying valleys in the south are colder than the rest of the country, not only on account of their greater elevation but also because of their being exposed to cold winds from the north and north-east.
