The climate in northerly Tallinn is tempered by its location on the Baltic Sea. In the summer, the city gets cooling sea breezes; in winter the same sea air keeps the snowfall in check. That’s not to say that Estonia doesn’t get snow—a couple feet a year—but it’s considerably less than in nearby Finland or Russia. Spring and fall bring mild temperatures but can also feature sea fog and/or sudden rain. In summer, high temperatures rarely top the low 80s.
