More of the average annual 1,000-1,5000mm of rainfall occurs in the north than the southern lowlands.
The eastern Albania highlands, due to the greater altitude, have colder winters that can reach lows of -1°C (30°F) in January. This warms up by the peak of the summer to the mid-20°C range (mid 70°F).
