Climate: Sicily has a typical Mediterranean climate with mild and wet winters and hot, dry summers with very changeable intermediate seasons. On the coasts, especially in the south-west, the climate is affected by the African currents and summers can be scorching. Sicily is seen as an island of warm winters. The climate is Mediterranean along the coasts and on the smaller islands, with mild, moderately rainy winters and hot, sunny summers. In inland areas, the climate is slightly more continental on the hills, where winters become moderately cold and summers are still hot (and often scorching). The mountain areas are colder and although at the same altitude, it's certainly not as cold as in the Alps or the Apennines.
