The paper is an attempt to assess thermal conditions in the Dendrological Garden in Glinna against the conditions of the mesoregion of the Szczecin Coastal Region, as represented by five stations (Lipnik, Ostoja, Szczecin, Świnoujście, Kołobrzeg) in a study period of two years (May 2014-April 2016), based on measurements of air temperature taken at 200 cm a.g.l. Spatial variation of thermal conditions of the analysed area was found to be very large and was statistically confirmed. Mean air temperature in the analysed period in Glinna was 10.2°C which, in comparison with the other stations, proved to be the highest value. The absolute minimum, i.e. -12.7°C, was recorded in Glinna in January 2016 and the absolute maximum of 35.6°C in August 2015. It was shown that for the purpose of the assessment of thermal conditions in Glinna on the basis of mean air temperature from the 24-hour period, it is justified to refer to multiannual data from IMGW station in Szczecin. On the grounds of minimum temperature, amplitude, time of occurrence of spring and autumn frosts, as well as the number of days with frost and cold days, it was shown that the Dendrological Garden in Glinna has more favourable thermal conditions than the neighbouring areas.
