Summer in Morocco
Summer is a great time to visit any of Morocco’s five major cities: Marrakech, Casablanca, Rabat, Fes and Tangier. The weather is warm with average temperatures between 80 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit. Rainfall is minimal during June through August, but there can be localized storms in mountainous areas such as Imlil
Tangier, Agadir, Kenitra. Summer lasts from June until September with average temperatures ranging from 15 °C (59 °F) to 30 °C (86 °F). You’ll definitely want to bring warm clothes for summer in Morocco as you’ll experience both hot days and chilly nights. Evenings can get cool enough that you might need a light jacket or sweater for some parts of your trip. In July, night-time temperatures start dipping into low 50s/high 40s Fahrenheit, so it’s a good idea to pack a light coat. It gets cold at night during winter season in Moroccan cities: Rabat, Casablanca, Fez.
Winter in Morocco
Marrakech, Casablanca, Fes, Tangier, Rabat. The coastal cities of Essaouira and Agadir have different weather: They are cool in winter because they receive oceanic breezes while inland cities remain warm. Average temperatures for Marrakech in December range from 17°C (62°F) at night to 25°C (77°F) during day time.
The mountains of Morocco are particularly cold in winter, with temperatures dropping below 0°C (32°F) at night. If you’re visiting areas like Ifran or Imlil, it might be advisable to avoid traveling in January or February. That said, skiers can enjoy skiing in Errachidia, where 10km of pistes have been laid out by Ski Atlas.
Spring in Morocco
spring is an excellent time to visit. You’ll be able to experience warm weather with temperatures reaching around 70 degrees Farenheit, without being swamped by tourists. Spring is also great for exploring cities that are most vibrant during milder seasons of the year. One such city is Marrakech in southern Morocco. The average high temperature in Marrakech in April is 73 degrees, which makes it ideal for walking around and taking in its sights. Additionally, if you want to explore farther south into Mauritania or Mali at any point in your journey across Africa, there’s no better time than spring when temperatures aren’t scorching hot throughout much of northern Africa.
Fall in Morocco
If you visit Morocco in Fall, expect warm weather with temperatures ranging from 72 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit (22-27 degrees Celsius). September is one of two months that are ideal for travel, as it’s typically less crowded than June or July. During fall, most Europeans are on vacation. As a result, flights into Europe become cheaper for Americans. From there, make your way across North Africa; instead of flying directly to Marrakech (Morocco’s most popular tourist destination), consider visiting Casablanca or Agadir instead. Both cities are closer to most major attractions in Northern Africa (including Tunisia) and they’re less expensive than Marrakech.
