Morocco climate overview
This North African kingdom borders the North Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea between Algeria and Western Sahara. From the long-faded elegance of Tangier's Mediterranean "Gateway to Africa" to the desolate expanse of the vast Sahara, Morocco has a diverse landscape.
The snow capped Atlas Mountains dominate, running almost the entire length of the country. To the northwest fertile plains lie facing the Atlantic, to the south, the beginnings of the vast Sahara, where rocky gorges crumble to stony wastelands scattered with small oasis villages. The Atlantic coast is rocky with long stretches of sandy beaches.
Northern Morocco has a subtropical climate with a summer dry season running from May to October. Conditions here are similar to many countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea with extensive cultivation of wheat, barley, olives and citrus fruits. Summers are dry, sunny and hot, while winter temperatures range from comfortable to cold depending on elevation. Rainfall only occurs in the winter months, diminishing to the south and the east.
In the mountains many northern slopes are covered with extensive forests of oak and cedar. Here winter rainfall turns to snow at higher elevations and temperatures in December and January can be very cold. In summer, despite the elevation, mountain areas can be considerably hotter than the coastal plains due to the proximity of the Sahara Desert.
Southern Morocco is famous for its kasbahs, large fortified buildings made from mud-bricks, and is wilder than the north. Here crop cultivation gives way to grazing and eventually to stony mountainous desert dotted with the occasional oasis. There are some spectacular sand dunes in the region to the south of Errachidia, but the true Sahara is not reached before the border with Algeria.
Dust laden winds can blow in from the desert at any time of the year producing hazy conditions particularly in the summer.
