What’s the weather like in Rethymnon in September?
Sitting on the north coast of Crete, Rethymnon is a popular holiday destination known for its beautiful weather and rich history. It has a Mediterranean climate that brings hot, dry summers and mild winters to the Greek island resort, with lovely, warm temperatures in September. The weather does get cooler as the month goes on though, as autumn begins to kick in. Later in the month is ideal for sightseeing as Rethymnon gets quieter at this time.
The average temperature in Rethymnon is 23ºC in September, peaking at a high of 27ºC in the hottest part of the day. With nine hours of sunshine each day at a strong UV level, be sure to pack plenty of high factor sun cream for your holiday at this time. After the sun goes down, the average low drops to 18ºC, so you shouldn’t need much more than a t-shirt for evenings out in the resort. Just 10mm of rain’s forecast over three days in September, and the Mediterranean Sea’s a warm 25ºC this month, perfect for swimming and snorkelling.
