Sicily Weather in April
What’s the weather like in Sicily in April?
Sicily is located off of mainland Italy. The largest island in the Mediterranean, it has rising temperatures and reducing rain in April as it leaves the wet winter behind. If you’re going at this time you’ll have plenty of warm and sunny weather. There are tall mountains, including Mount Etna, which have a big impact on Sicily’s weather. They’ll keep you sheltered in the south from north westerly winds, so you’ll be warmer and drier if you’re staying here. The Sahara Desert can sometimes send warm winds over to Sicily which leads to soaring temperatures.
The average high in capital Palermo is 18ºC, which is perfectly warm enough to relax by the pool or on the beach. You should bring some warmer clothes for the evenings though as it drops to 11ºC at night. The sea temperature is 16ºC, while humidity’s low. There’s 47mm of rain over nine days, and you can expect 13 hours of daylight with seven hours of sunshine each day. UV levels will be high so don’t forget your sun cream. Sunset’s at 7.30pm at the start of the month and gradually gets later.
