Corfu Climate & Weather

Corfu Climate and Weather

The climate in Corfu features hot, dry summers and mild winter weather. Temperatures in July and August, the peak summer months, range from 90ºF (32ºC) during the day to 64ºF (18ºC) at night. Rainfall is unlikely during the peak summer season, but heavy showers can be expected between September and April. Generally, the west coast of the island experiences a more moderate climate than the east coast. Winters are relatively mild and a good time to visit for those who want to avoid the crowds and travel on a budget; winter temperatures range between 41°F and 57°F (5°C and 14°C) and there are still plenty of sunny days. Spring is possibly the best time to visit as the weather is warm but not uncomfortably so and the landscape is coming alive with wild flowers and new greenery. Some rainfall can be expected in spring and autumn but the brief showers are usually welcome and refreshing and shouldn't interfere with your plans too much. Along with spring autumn is a lovely time to visit Corfu, as the fruit is ready for harvest, the days are still balmy, and the sea still fairly warm. There is also a chance of spectacular thunderstorms in autumn.
