Danube River Basin Land in Average Year

There is an east west division in the Danube basin with the western half generally wetter than the eastern half, especially visible from August onwards. From June onwards there is a lessening of the soil moisture throughout the basin mainly due to the low rainfall for this period and decreased input from snow melt runoff in the upper basin.
