Climate[edit]

Palana has a subarctic climate (Köppen Dfc), intermediate between those of the Sakha Republic and the eastern coast of the Kamchatka Peninsula. The Sea of Okhotsk freezes during the winter and thus there is less moderation of temperatures during this season than is found on the Pacific side of the peninsula, and the Aleutian Low tends to produce less precipitation.
