The climate varies greatly in terms of temperatures between winter and summer or day and night throughout most of the country, although temperatures along the Atlantic coast are relatively mild.

From May to September, the weather is hot and dry, almost suffocating when the chergui blows.

From October to April, the weather is cooler, unstable and sometimes rainy.


Time difference

Winter and summer alike there is no time difference between Morocco and the United Kingdom and Ireland, with the exception of a few weeks due to differences in the date of daylight saving times.
