Common description



The climate when moving through Morocco changes somewhat.
The climate on the Mediterranean coast is mild, subtropical. The average temperature here in summer is about + 24-28 C (sometimes reaching + 30-35 C), and in winter + 10-12 C. When moving south, the climate becomes more continental, with hot (up to +37 C) in summer and cool (up to + 5 C) in winter. The daily temperature difference can reach 20 degrees.
The northwestern part of the country is greatly influenced by air masses from the Atlantic Ocean. Due to this, the climate here is cooler, and daily temperature differences are much lower than in the rest of the country. In the mountainous areas of the Atlas, the climate strongly depends on the altitude of the place. Precipitation ranges from 500-1000 mm. per year in the north to less than 200 mm. per year in the south. The western slopes of the Atlas occasionally receive up to 2000 mm. precipitation, there are even local floods, while in the south-east of the country there are years when precipitation does not fall at all.
