    Cyprus weather January

     

    What’s the weather like in Cyprus in January?

    Close to southwest Asia just off the south coast of Turkey and north of Egypt, holidays to Cyprus offer some the Mediterranean’s best weather. January’s one of the wettest months of the year, but you'll still see plenty of sun at this time.

    Climatic influences

    The Mediterranean Sea’s quite cool in January and this makes the weather mild too. There’s not much difference between the north and south, but the east’s warmer and drier than the west because of westerly winds and Cyprus’ two mountain ranges. At nearly 2,000m, Mount Olympus is the tallest of the Troodos mountains, which also protect the Mesaoria plain from rain.

    Averages

    The average high temperature in Cyprus during January is 17ºC, although things can get quite chilly at night so bring some warmer clothes for the evenings. The typical sea temperature’s 18ºC, while humidity’s low. Rainfall is 80mm over ten rainy days, and you can expect ten hours of daylight with five hours of sunshine each day. UV levels will be moderate. Sunset’s at 4.50pm at the start of the month and gradually gets later.
