Climate: The climate of Venice, the capital of the Veneto region, is moderately continental, similar to that of the Po Valley, with cold, moist winters and hot, muggy summers, but it's slightly tempered by the Adriatic Sea. There are two relative maxima of rainfall in spring and autumn, when Atlantic depressions are more frequent. In these cases, the south-east wind ("scirocco") blows, which collects moisture over the Adriatic Sea. In addition to the sirocco, Venice is subject to the bora, a cold wind blowing from the plains of Eastern Europe, especially in winter and spring. The bora sweeps the Venetian plain and the lagoon of Venice, although with a lower force than in Slovenia and in Trieste, where it is channeled through the mountains. The phenomenon of the so-called 'acqua alta' (high water) occurs in bad weather conditions, and it's due to a combination of wind (the sirocco, which obstructs the flow of rivers into the sea) and the tide. Spring, from March to May, is a quite rainy and unstable season. There is a moderate amount of sunny days, but there can still be cold and foggy days (especially in March) as well as periods of bad weather and wind. Typically, by the second half of April, the temperature becomes pleasant in a more stable manner, but the bora can sometimes still blow, lowering the temperature for a few days, also in May. Summer, from June to August, is usually sunny, and it's often also hot and muggy, though the breeze tempers the heat a little. Even in the hottest days, it is rare for the temperature to rise above 35°C. In the afternoon, thunderstorms can break out, while the bora can sometimes blow, bringing a bit of cool weather.
