Greece : climate and when to go to Athens

Temperate climate, mild, wet winters, hot and dry summers. The climate in Greece is typical of the Mediterranean climate: mild and rainy winter, relatively warm and dry summer, and generally prolonged periods of sunshine for most of the year. A wide variety of climate sub-types, also in the Mediterranean climate approach, is present in several regions of Greece. This is due to the influence of topography (large mountain chains, along the central part), and to the air masses coming from the moisture sources of the central Mediterranean Sea.

When to go? The hottest month for the beach, lazing around and swimming is August. Check the precipitations because showers are possible but the sun returns quickly, otherwise other periods are possible. The coolest month is January, if you can not stand the heat too much. The driest month of the year is June, if you do not like the rain at all.

Weather uncertainties 2023 to go to Athens ?

Stormy risks under tropics

Risks of tropical rains and showers
In the tropics, these storm or rain pictograms indicate that tropical showers or stormy weather are possible. It is difficult to predict the exact local weather in the tropics. This is especially true by the sea and the beach. Consider that more than 180 mm of rain per month is the limit to enjoy the beach on vacation. So check this data provided for each month on the preferred destinations of this site.

When traveling in the tropics as a seaside, rain is not welcome. If you see this indicator, with possible storms, that does not mean that it will rain all day long. When we observe the local rainfall, it is either really zero or very weak. Meteorologists prefer to be pessimistic. So observe below, the skies photographed during a week announced stormy in Asia. It did not rain once. I invite you to integrate this parameter before going to Athens for a good trip to the sun!
