Although Kamchatka lies at similar latitudes to Scotland cold arctic winds from Siberia, combined with the cold Oyashio sea current keep the peninsula covered in snow from October to late May. The Kamchatka peninsula contains the volcanoes.
Kamchatka receives up to 2,700 mm (110 in) of precipitation per year. The summers are moderately cool, and the winters are rather stormy. But the storms rarely produce lighting. Politically, the peninsula forms part of Kamchatka Krai. The southern tip is called Cape Lopatka.
