The local council also calls the department “Cathar Country” after a group of religious dissidents active in the 15th century. Aude is under the influence of a Mediterranean climate.The autumn is characterized by violent and short storms. The summer is often hot and dry, which is favourable to the culture of the vine and the olive-trees. Yet, the department has several contrasts in climate: in the north, the Montagne Noire and, in the south, the Pays de Sault, have a mountainous climate with temperatures sometimes very low in winter. in the west, the climate is under Aquitaine influence with heavier precipitation, while in the east the climate is purely Mediterranean.in the centre, in the Limouxin, Carcassonnais and Razes areas, the climate is known as intermediary with significant exposure to winds. The winds are often present in Aude. it is one of the windiest French departments, with 300 to 350 days of wind per year. This phenomenon is due mostly to the variations in relief north and south which create a kind of corridor.Ski stations are between 40 minutes and 1.5 hours away.
