Yerevan Armenia Weather
The Armenian summer plains come in early June and experience warm and dry weather with high temperatures and low humidity. Winter in Armenia takes place in December, which is officially the first winter month, but in reality it is more of a summer season.
Summer is hot because the humidity is low and the breeze from the mountains brings a little relief. Given the humidity, the temperature feels cold in the middle of the year, but not as cold as in the other half.
During this time there is not much precipitation, but there is still strong wind and during the day it gets hot, while the nights stay cool. Summer is, at least in view of the altitude, quite warm and in July and August there is a lot of activity. September is a pleasant time for the weather in the country, and October and November can be hot, although there is not quite as much rainfall as in other months.
The coldest day of the year is January 23, with an average low of 19C and a high of 37C. June and September are the hottest months, with temperatures up to 92 degrees Celsius and 37 degrees Celsius respectively. The hottest day of the year was July 28, with an above average high (92 ADeGsF) and a lower level.
Due to the increasing degree days alone, the first spring blooms appeared in Yerevan in March, while they appear in the mountain regions in April. July, September and then April are dry, due to the fact that it hardly rains at lower altitudes. As October approaches, temperatures drop to 18C, but the mountain regions are freezing at night. With increasing altitude, the climate gets colder in summer and also colder and snowier in winter, with the summer in the lower altitudes being very hot.
As for the warmer months, July is quite full of tourists, so you should plan accordingly. If you don't have to deal with the heat, come to the beautiful cities of Armenia and attend the festivities, then come back later in the year. We hope this guide will encourage you to book a ticket to Yerevan whenever you are there and see all the great things to do in and around Yerevan, despite the cold temperatures.

If you are travelling to Armenia this winter, you will be glad to know that there are many activities that will keep you occupied and enthralled with all that Armenia has to offer. Whether Armenia is on your winter list or you just find a cheap ticket for the Caucasian country in the off-season - we have a lot to do in Yerevan and around the capital of Armenia in winter, which will keep you entertained, occupied and fascinated by what it has to offer! This is our guide to the Yrevan winter and we will introduce you to the many things you can do during the cold season as you travel through the winter below. Before we say goodbye to simply warming up and going out somewhere, I will give you a brief overview of some of the best places to go in winter in Armenia, as well as a few tips and tricks.
If you are flexible about your travel dates to Armenia, try to arrive before New Year. If you visit Armenia in low season, visit Yerevan in the first week of January or in the last days of February.
If you are not a winter person and do not feel like visiting new places in cold temperatures, avoid the winter months. I am a big fan of winter and want to cope with the coldest temperatures, but if you are not a winter person, you should avoid the winter month.
For winter sports lovers, January may be the right time to visit Armenia and you may find some fresh ski slopes around you. The Tsaghkadzor ski resort is located in the heart of Yerevan, in the midst of alpine meadows, just a short drive from the city centre. Mid-December is a bit slow, but if you visit it in winter, you can feel it as a must-visit. This complex is one of the few places where you can skate in Armenia, so a visit to Yrevan in winter is something for all skating enthusiasts. I suggest you go to Jervan for this, as it is easy to rent equipment and relax in an urban environment.
