Marrakech offers a sunny, desert clime

Sunshine by day and cool nights

The sun always shines in Marrakech. A weekend break in Marrakech is the perfect getaway for a romantic holiday. Warm weather, sunshine, and blue skies are the norm. Take in the sun, and then head to the spa for a hammam and a massage. Enjoy the weather on any of the many riad terraces, or in the cool shade of the interior courtyards. In the winter, near constant sunshine and blue skies can be a welcome respite from the chilly grey days of Europe.

Weather viewer: Chances are the weather today is beautiful in Marrakech... but just to make sure... you can check the BBC's helpful weather site.

The climate in Morocco is typically dry. Marrakech is set on high plains, 1,000 feet above sea-level.

Temperatures Chart

Rain is a fairly uncommon occurrence in Morocco, with late Fall and early Spring most likely times. When it does rain, it is usually not for long.

The summer months can be very hot, particularly August, with temperatures reaching as high as 35°C in the daytime. This is why riads are built with such thick walls, as you will find that the inside of a riad stays cool even on the hottest days.
