Climate of Svalbard - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The climate of Svalbard is principally a result of its latitude, which is between 74° and 81° north. Average July temperatures range from 3 and 7 °C (37.4 and 44.6 °F) , and in January temperatures are normally between −13 and −20 °C (8.6 and −4.0 °F).

Climate Svalbard: temperature (°F), precipitation (in), when to go
The climate in Svalbard is subpolar along the west coast, reached by the last branch of the Gulf Stream, and is polar on the east coast, where the temperature remains around freezing even in summer. In winter, the polar ice typically reaches the north and east coasts of the islands, while leaving free the western ones.
