Climate[edit]

Osby has an oceanic climate that retains a four-season characteristic. It has resemblances of moderate continental, with summers sometimes being very warm and winter lows dropping below freezing with regularity for a few months. Its southerly inland position has rendered it to be one of the few locations in the country that has reached 30 °C (86 °F) in May. In spite of this summer averages are not exceptional when compared with adjacent coastal areas.
