Agadir weather

Agadir has a hot, semi-arid temperate climate. A cold current flows along the Atlantic coast of Morocco, which makes the climate very mild, but can also create fogs and low clouds, especially during the warmest months. When the desert wind blows, temperatures usually increase dramatically.

Summer, from mid-June to September, is warm and dry. At night and in the early morning, fog and mist form along the coast due to the cold sea current, which then disappear in the warmer hours. Occasionally, the wind from the desert can bring hot days, around 40°C (104°F) and above.

Autumn, from October to November, is usually pleasantly warm in October and mild in November, but it can start to get cold at night. In October, the first light rain showers may occur.

Winter, from December to February, is mild, especially during the day, averaging a high temperature of about 21°C (70°F), while nights can be cold, with a minimum temperature below 5°C (41°F) on occasions. Rainfall is light, falling mainly as brief showers.

Spring, from March to mid-June, is mild or pleasantly warm; however, when the wind blows from the desert, it can be hot.
