Morocco Climate and Weather
Morocco's climate is moderate and subtropical, cooled by breezes off the Mediterranean Sea and Atlantic Ocean. In the interior the temperatures are more extreme: winters can be fairly cold and the summers very hot. Marrakech has an average winter temperature of 21ºC (70ºF) and summer temperature of 100°F (38°C). In the Atlas Mountains temperatures can drop below zero and mountain peaks are snow-capped throughout most of the year. The winter in the north of the country is wet and rainy; while in the south, at the edge of the Moroccan Sahara, it is dry and bitterly cold. Weather-wise, the best time to visit Morocco is between April and early June, or between September and November, when the weather is warm and dry (and there aren't too many tourists around, either).
