5 Tips Morocco Weather and Climate

Morocco is well situated on the far northwestern corner of Africa and has an expansive shoreline that stretches from the Atlantic Ocean to the Straight of Gibraltar Morocco's Weather. is temperate year round. The Best Time to visit Morocco on a Private Tour is spring and fall. With its dramatic landscapes such as the High Atlas and Sahara Desert Morocco is ideal for couples, families and small group travel.  Morocco's weather makes the country a perfect destination for a variety of activities ranging from camel trekking to hiking, biking, horseback riding and sunbathing.

When Visiting Morocco the 5 Tips on Weather and Climate to Consider are:

#1: Spring (April and May) and Fall (September and October) are perhaps the best overall time to take a Morocco Tour. Spring and Fall Seasons offer temperate weather that is ideal for camel trekking in the Sahara Desert, exploring kasbahs, ruins and waterfalls or taking an excursion off road hiking in the High Atlas.

#2:  Winter is an ideal time to tour Morocco for those who wish to head south. In winter, the south of Morocco is perfect by day though desert nights can get very cold. If you’re planning to hike in the mountains it’s best to keep to the months from April to October unless you have some experience in snow conditions.

#3: If you are not comfortable with very hot weather, it is advisable to avoid scheduling your Morocco Tour during July through August because these are the hottest times of the year. Also, certain cities such as Marrakech may continue to be hot until the last weeks of September. If you decide to take a Morocco Tour during July and August, it’s a wonderful time to head for the coast of Essaouira or the Oualidia Lagoon, while in the mountains there are no set rules.

#4: The poetically Rif Mountains which are surrounded by plateaus, valleys, and costal plains, parallel the Mediterranean coast and are also ideal for visiting in winter. Northern cities by such as Cueta, Tangier, Tetouan, Melilla, and Cala Iris enjoy Mediterranean conditions. The coastal cities by the Mediterranean are generally mild and pleasant all year long; even winter time is enjoyable at temperatures staying at 50 degrees.

#5: When preparing to visit Morocco, keep in mind that the country is separated into five regions: the Rif Mountains, the Middle Atlas, High Atlas, Anti-Atlas, and the Sahara desert. Each region has a unique weather and climate which is well paired with specific activities and geared towards a certain style of traveler.

Best Time to Visit Morocco

Morocco’s Weather and Climate also enable travelers to enjoy site seeing year round at architectural sites, monuments, gardens and mosques. Seasons and weather in Morocco take on a whole new meaning as the country is divided into two climatic zones by the High Atlas Mountains To the north of the High Atlas, the western winds from the Atlantic contribute to the cooler temperatures of the north. South of the High Atlas, the Sahara Desert influences the weather in this region.

Beyond central Morocco lie the High Atlas Mountains, running diagonally across Morocco from the Agadir’s Atlantic beaches to northern Algeria. Southern Morocco is divided into three areas: the Souss Valley, the Anti-Atlas, and the Western Sahara desert. Winters are popular times to visit any of the three regions, especially the desert, as the south is semi-tropical with a hot and humid climate; temperatures rise more than 100 degrees.

Ultimately, Morocco's Weather and Climate is like few others. In one day, it is possible to have a snowstorm in the mountains, warm weather by the Mediterranean coast, and a day of unbearable heat in the Sahara followed by sub-zero night temperatures.
