What’s the weather like in Corfu in October?
Corfu’s the second largest island in the Ionian Sea, and sits just off Greece’s northwest coast. With typical long, hot Mediterranean summers, you’ll still get lots of sun in October, although there will be quite a bit of rain too.
Corfu’s two mountain ranges divide the island into three districts and bring more rain to the island than other Greek islands. Cool breezes will keep you comfortable when temperatures are high, while Corfu has relatively high humidity which means there are occasional storms, though these usually clear quickly and leave behind sunny skies.
During October the average high temperature’s 23ºC, which is perfectly warm enough to relax on the beach when the weather’s clear. You should bring some warmer clothes for the evenings as things can get a bit chilly, while a waterproof jacket’s also a good idea. The average sea temperature’s 22ºC, while humidity’s low and ranges from 50% to well over 90%. There’s more rain as the month goes on, with an average of 120mm across 11 rainy days.
During October you can expect 11 hours of daylight with six hours of sunshine each day. UV levels will be moderate level so make sure you use sun cream, while sunset’s after 7.20pm at the start of the month; this gradually gets earlier until it’s before 6pm towards the end of October when daylight saving finishes.
