Algeria weather overview

With the Western Sahara Desert covering over 80% of the country, Algeria is hot, hot, hot, particularly in the south and especially during its long summer.

Expect the unexpected here: sandstorms can be a flight-delaying nuisance in the south during the arid summer months, while the country's coastal towns pay tor the sea breezes they bask in by attracting the occasional fierce storm.

Southern Algeria comes into its own in the winter months when its oases attract hordes of sun worshippers. Rain in this region is very rare; indeed, Algeria, as a whole, has a low level of rainfall.

What to pack for Algeria weather

Take plenty of light cotton clothes but in winter be prepared to layer up for cold nights in the Sahara and the Atlas mountains. Nights are warmer on the coast.
