Climate and Weather of Nukus, Uzbekistan

Nukus, Uzbekistan

The climate of Nukus

Nukus is located in southwestern Uzbekistan, in the Karakalpakstan Autonomous Region. This autonomous region occupies a large part of Uzbekistan. Nukus is the capital of Karakalpakstan and is located on the western bank of the Amu Darja River. The city has grown very quickly in recent years, mainly because many people from the surrounding towns and villages have moved to the city. The reason is that the water level of the Aral Sea has fallen very quickly in recent years, which has ensured that some old fishing villages are now ghost towns. Nukus is a planned city and therefore has a typical Soviet appearance.

According to Citypopulationreview, Nukus has a cold desert climate, which has changed significantly in recent years due to the migration of the Aral Sea. Winters are cold and dry, with nighttime temperatures well below freezing. Daytime temperatures are around freezing in these months. Summers are warm and dry with average daytime temperatures well above thirty degrees Celsius. Due to the disappearance of the Aral Sea, the city and the surrounding region is regularly ravaged by heavy sand and dust storms.
