What’s the weather like in Morocco in February?
Morocco has a warm year-round climate thanks to its location in North Africa with the Sahara Desert in the south. There are some great places for a winter holiday, with many parts of the country getting lots of sunny, dry weather at this time.
There’s differing weather across Morocco because of its geography. Coastal spots are mainly Mediterranean, while the North Atlantic coast is a bit cooler due to the Canary Current. The Sahara means temperatures soar in the south, while places inland, such as Marrakech, are also hot as there’s no sea to cool things down.
Popular Agadir on the North Atlantic coast has an average high temperature of 20ºC during February, which is perfectly warm enough for a winter beach holiday. You should pack some warmer things for the evenings though as things can get quite chilly, with temperatures usually dropping to 9ºC at night. The normal sea temperature’s 17ºC, while humidity’s low. Typical rainfall’s 29mm over three rainy days and you can expect 11 hours of daylight with eight hours of sunshine each day. UV levels will be moderate, while sunset’s around 6.30pm in February.
Things to Do
Morocco’s winter sun means its beaches are nice and busy in February, while coastal resorts also use Atlantic winds for water sports such as windsurfing. The weather’s best for exploring, so you can comfortably check out the country’s history and culture. Head to the medina in Marrakech and Agadir’s markets, visit the desert or the largest city in Morocco, Casablanca.
