  The park influenced by the Atlantic and Mediterranean air masses. The considerably uneven relief with deep valleys enables and contributes to the vertical air movement which provides the higher parts of this area with warmer air.

The temperature variation in various sections of the park is the result of a big altitude difference between the lowest and the highest point of the park, that is measuring up to 1100 metres, and this tends to occur in spite of the previously mentioned relief. The highest average annual temperature measured in Idrija is somewhat below 10 °C, and the lowest in Poslušanje is 5 °C.

The rainfall is regular and abundant; the lowest precipitation is recorded in January, February and August. The centre of the park, in the Krekovše region, proves to be one of the steepest regions in Slovenia with a precipitation rate of more than 3,000 mm per m² each year. 

The winds are moderate, with almost no thunderstorms, whereas sleet occurs quite often and causes damage to the forests.
