Continental climates are defined as having a coldest month mean temperature below -3 C (26.6 F) or 0 °C depending on which isotherm used for the coldest month and four months above 10 °C. In Continental climates, Precipitation tends to be moderate in amount, concentrated mostly in the warmer months.

A continental climate is located in the interior of a continent or is a climate having characteristics similar to those found in such locations. Continental is a descriptive term that is general rather than specific. It includes temperature extremes, large diurnal and seasonal ranges of temperature, small annual precipitation totals, and low relative humidifies.
