    Rethymnon weather January

    What’s the weather like in Rethymnon in January?

    January isn’t the hottest month of the year, but the Rethymnon weather in January is still mild and enjoyable with highs in the mid-teens and lots of daily sunshine throughout the month. It’s a great time to visit the popular holiday destination if you want to avoid summer crowds and escape the colder weather back home in the UK.

    Geographical influences

    Rethymnon has a typical Mediterranean climate with mild but slightly damp winters. January is the coldest month of the year, but there are still plenty of sunny days to enjoy throughout the month. Its position on the northern coast of Crete means the region experiences cooler weather than further south, which has a lot of protection from northerly winds by the central mountain ranges.


    You’ll need to pack plenty of warm clothes for your holiday to Rethymnon in January to help cope with the cool temperatures at night, which drop to lows of 7°C. Things begin to warm up again in the morning, reaching highs of 15°C at midday. The sun shines for around ten hours a day, giving you plenty of time to sightsee and explore the city. With 78mm of rain per month, you can expect around 15 days of rain spread over the month.
