The climate of Provence is warm and dry. It results from the combination of three factors:

• High number of sunny days (over 300 days)

• limited precipitation (snow, rain, etc); in winter the wind called mistral/mistrau drives out the clouds after short but intense downpours.

• dry weather (the area could have dryness one month and rain the following, but still have significant dryness overall)

The legendary Mistral is a strong, cold wind from the north that occurs mostly in the winter and spring. The higher regions of Provence get snow in winter.
