    Athens weather January

    What’s the weather like in Athens in January?

    Along with February, it’s the coolest month of the year, but the temperature still often reaches a pleasant 12°C or 13°C. The Athens weather in January produces many hours of winter sunshine and visitors enjoy exploring the ancient Greek capital at this quiet time.

    Geographical influences

    Athens is found in the south-east of Greece, which is one of the warmest and sunniest spots in Europe. Temperatures are much lower in winter compared to summer and in the city there are no coastal winds to make you feel chilly. The city landscape creates an insulating effect and raises temperatures in Athens compared to nearby rural areas.


    The Mediterranean weather in Athens in January hits an impressive average high temperature of 13°C. This drops to an average low of 7°C on rare colder days. At night, it’ll be between 5°C to 8°C. It’s one of the wetter months in Athens, but still only 57mm is expected over just seven or eight rainy days. You’ll benefit from a brilliant five hours of sunshine each day on average, with the sun rising at 7.30am and setting until 5.45pm at the end of January in Athens. Swimming in the nearby Aegean Sea’s not very popular in January as the water temperature’s only 15°C. The humidity and UV levels are low and the wind speed around the historic city of Athens is moderate at the beginning of the year.
