The temperate-continental climate exhibits features of the transition zone from steppe to forest-steppe. Winters are cold with abrupt temperature fluctuations due to cold air invasions from the north-northeast. Summers experience a high frequency of hot days, particularly in July-August, with an extended period beyond the calendar's boundaries, at the expense of spring.

Soil: The soil is characterized by brown, non-carbonate clay loam. Its texture is clay-sandy, with a 30-32% clay content, enhancing water retention capacity—an advantageous feature in dry years.
