Moderately continental - what does it mean?
Moderately continental - means a type of climate that is inherent in areas with stable hot summers, frosty cold winters and little rainfall. Where the land is gaining. In most of Russia, this is exactly the climate.
Warm summers and cold winters are exactly the signs of a temperate continental climate. It is expressed by a bright seasonality, they are clearly different and almost always quickly becomes clear when the season changes.
Average temperature: in summer up to +30 (average +26 degrees), in winter also up to -30 (average temperature -25)
As far as I remember from school. this is the European climate. Like in France. 4 seasons.
