Intro

What’s the weather like in Crete in September?

Crete’s the largest of the Greek islands, and sits between the mainland and North Africa. It has hot and dry weather in September. Located in the southern Aegean, the island has the warmest climate in Greece, and although there’s some local differences in weather you’re virtually guaranteed glorious weather in September.

Microclimates

Crete has two very distinct microclimates due to the central mountains that stretch from east to west. The mountains act as a barrier to north westerly winds, so the south looks more African compared to the Mediterranean north. You’ll find things hot and dry in the south, although breezes will help keep you comfortable around the whole coast. Temperatures are higher on the coast compared to in the mountains, which can get heavy snow in winter.

Averages

Things are nice and hot in Crete during September, which has an average high temperature of 27ºC. You won’t need to bring many warm clothes with you as it stays pleasant at night, while the sea temperature’s an inviting 24ºC. Humidity’s low and ranges from 50% to 80%, while average rainfall’s just 10mm over two rainy days.

Daylight

During September you can look forward to 12 hours of daylight each day with ten long hours of sunshine. UV levels will be very high, so make sure you bring plenty of sun cream and be careful in the midday heat, while sunset’s at 7.45pm at the start of the month.
