The climate is severe, the average annual air temperature is negative. On average, in the vicinity of Susuman, it is -15.5 ° C. The day-to-day transition through 0 ° C in the direction of lowering occurs at the end of the second, beginning of the third decade of September. Usually the coldest month is January. The coldest period of winter is the end of December - the middle of January. At this time, in addition to the general radiative cooling, stagnation of cold air masses occurs. These factors complement the high latitude position and elevation of Susuman relative to the sea level of 650 m. As a result, local regions of extremely low air temperature are formed here, which can reach -63 ° C [15], and sometimes up to -67 ° C
