While the valleys of the Vardar and Strumica rivers have temperate Mediterranean type of climate, the interior parts have a moderate continental type of climate. The interior areas of Macedonian country have warm and dry summers and cold, wet winters.

The mountainous climate in the Macedonian region is characterized by long, snowy winters and short, cold summers. The spring season is colder than the fall season in Macedonia.
