This small Baltic state on the northwestern boundary of Russia has a very similar climate to the adjacent parts of Russia, but is a little milder in winter thanks to the moderating influence of the Baltic Sea, which does not freeze for prolonged periods.
It is more open than Russia to weather influences coming from the Atlantic and northwest Europe; however during severe spells of winter weather it is dominated by cold winds from the interior of Russia.
The table for Tallinn shows that conditions in Estonia do not differ much from the weather at St Petersburg in Russia.
