Weather Morocco

Morocco’s summertime heat can have a major influence on the enjoyment of your time in the country and should be taken into consideration when planning your trip. The country’s vast coastline is a magnet for locals and visitors alike during summer, with long, sunny days that are cooled by afternoon sea breezes. The higher reaches of the High Atlas, Middle Atlas, and Rif mountains are also pleasant escapes from the heat down on the plains. Traveling inland during this time—especially in central and southern Morocco but also Marrakech, Fes, and Meknes—is extremely uncomfortable.
Spring is considered the best season to experience Morocco. From late March to the end of May, central and southern Morocco are bathed in gloriously warm sunshine, the coast is beginning to warm up, and the mountains, some still hopefully snow-topped, come into their own with crisp, fresh air and none of the haze of the ensuing months.
Central and southern Morocco, as well as Marrakech, offer crisp, sunny days during the colder months (Nov– Mar), but be warned that the nights can be exceptionally cold. Mountain trekkers should also be aware that Morocco’s mountainous regions are susceptible to flash flooding during winter (from rainfall) and spring (from melting snow).
