Climactic characteristics:

The European continental climactic zone comprises Northern and Central Bulgaria (with the exception of the Black Sea region) together with the adjacent mountains. It is most tightly connected with the Eastern European regions and at the same time is positioned at a considerable distance from the Mediterranean Sea so its mitigating effect on the climate can by no means be felt It is because of that that the climate in the area is typically Eastern European - a winter relatively cold for the respective latitude and a relatively hot summer, the average annual temperature being around 23 degrees C - 24 degrees C.

The climate in the district is mild overall due to the influence of the Black Sea but it can also be characterized as moderate continental with more pronounced continental traits. The average annual temperature is in the range of 23- 25 degrees C. The relative humidity of the air varies in the range of 55-77%. Strong winds at 3-4 m/s are a frequent weather factor in the area. The annual precipitation in the area is typically continental, too, the maximum being in the month of June and the minimum - in February.

The coldest months during the year are January and February. The average annual temperature is 10.3 degrees C. The minimal temperatures during the winter can occasionally drop to -25 degrees C. Abrupt temperature drops during the spring and fall are no exception. The warmest months of the year are July and August. A typical spring month is April, a typical month in the autumn - October. The climate in the region is further characterized as continental by the average monthly temperatures for January - 2 degrees C and July + 24 degrees C as well as the relatively long stay of the snow coverage during the winter - over 3 months.

Waters

The local people as well as the industries and agricultural businesses are supplied with potable water by means of 6 deep pipe wells and the appertaining constructions to them. The monthly municipal supply of water is about 100 thousand cubic meters of water which equals 40 l/s. The water is normally pumped to the consumers
