What's the weather like in Sorrento in January?
Sorrento is on Italy’s beautiful Amalfi Coast, just a short distance from Naples and Pompeii in the southwest of the country. The town is a popular holiday destination and has a Mediterranean climate bringing hot, sunny summers and mild, damp winters to the area. January is the coldest month of the year in Sorrento, but temperatures are still relatively mild. There’s a high chance of showers this month, and although there’s a lot less rain than the wettest month, November, you’ll still need a waterproof jacket if you visit in January.
The average temperature in Sorrento is 8ºC in January, rising to a high of 12ºC in the warmest part of the day. Although there are four hours of daily sunshine at this time of year, you’ll need plenty of warm layers, especially at night when the temperature drops to an average low of 3ºC. Around 100mm of rain’s expected during January, spread across 14 wet days, so you’re likely to see some showers this month. If you want to take a dip in the sea, you’ll need to be brave as the Mediterranean waters measure a cool 15ºC.
