Weather in Morocco
One of the main attractions of Morocco for tourists is its ideal climate. Varied according to seasons and across regions, it is a climate that allows for all activities, from surfing to discovering the desert.
It is Mediterranean in the North, oceanic in the West, continental inland and Saharan in the South.
The climate inland varies greatly: very hot in the summer, cold in the winter – the temperature difference is also greater between day and night. In the winter, snow covers the mountains and can remain, on the heights, until the end of the spring. For those who wish to visit inland cities like Marrakesh, Fes or Meknes, it is better to go from March to May or from September to October.
Indeed, the summer heat is often stifling inland, so better to take advantage of the littoral, tempered by the sea breeze, from July on. The coastal region is beautiful at every season. The medium temperatures from Tangier to Casablanca are 12 degrees Celsius in the winter and 25 degrees Celsius in the summer. The spring on the coastline is splendid, followed by a hot, wet summer, on the Mediterranean as well as on the Atlantic.
The Saharan climate (on the South of Morocco) is characterized by sunny days and chilly nights. Rain is very rare and irregular and temperatures in this arid climate can easily go beyond 40 degrees Celsius in the daytime. The best time to visit is between October and February.
Depending on the regions you wish to discover and the activities you wish to practice, only you can choose the ideal time to visit Morocco.
