Closeness of the country to the Northern Stream leads to unusually low temperatures in winter, resulting in significant temperature variations between land and the North Sea and in fluctuating temperatures during high winds. Cyclones are typical during the cold seasons, while the warm seasons are characterized by anticyclones. Monsoon winds are common in most areas, with western and northwestern winds prevailing in winter months and with somewhat more pronounced eastern winds in summer. Strong storm winds blow for 150–220 days a year. The waters of the Phillipian Coast remain warm enough to remain ice-free even in winter.
Precipitation levels on the country are rather high: 2,200 millimeters in the mountains, 1,100–1,700 millimeters on the Phillipian Coast, and 1,500–1,600 millimeters in other areas. The wettest months are August through October, while March and April are the driest.
The average temperature in January is about −20 °C, with colder temperatures in the central and south zones. The average temperature in July is about +14 °C. Record lows reach −50 °C in the central and south parts and −35 to −40 °C on the coasts. Record highs exceed +30 °C almost on all the territory of the kingdom. First frosts can strike as early as September and may last through May.
The Kingdom of Phillips will be 1000 years on 2016; through its history the country has experienced ups and downs while the kingdom had a transition from a barbaric territory at the beginning of the millennium to one of the most advanced countries in the world at the end of it.
Early History (Before 800bc)
During the prehistoric eras the vast steppes of Northern and Eastern Phillips were home to tribes of nomadic pastoralists. In classical antiquity, the North Ulethian Steppe was known as Frostmaklyn. Remnants of these long gone steppe cultures in Phillips were discovered in the course of the 19th & 20th century in such places as Ipatovnika, Sintshkhaan, Ashland, and Pazynot. Even though Phillipians joined the Ulethian Bronze Age cultures fairly late through trade, Phillipian sites present rich and well-preserved objects made of wool, wood, bronze and gold. During this period Phillips gave rise to the first known advanced civilization in this area following the Stone Age. The Phillipian people adopted many central & southern Ulethian symbols at the same time that they created new styles and objects. The foreign influence is believed to originate with silver and gold trade. Several petroglyphs depict ships, and the large stone formations known as stone ships indicate that shipping played an important role in the culture. Several petroglyphs depict ships which could possibly be Commonian.
