In the summer morning and evening Magadan is very often covered with a very thick fog drifting from the sea. In the end of August and in the beginning of September frosts can occur at night. In calm weather insects can cause inconvenience, so you should have your own repellent. It is better to have a lip-balm, sunburn cream and eye drops with you (if the air is too dry).
