Weather details in january

The climate throughout January in Morocco is magnificent for most of the coastal cities located in front of the Atlantic. The sun is on the program and the heat is pleasant as of daybreak. If one crosses the country from north to south, they will notice the contrast between the wetter north and the drier south. The towns around the Straits of Gibraltar are cold and damp.

January in the Region near the Strait of Gibraltary

Located in the extreme north of the country, the city of Tangier is disadvantaged by a humid and cold climate. The mornings are indeed very cool and the rains often occur at the beginning of the day and in the evenings, especially towards the end of the month. Chefchaouen has the same climatic conditions as Tangier while in Fez, the mornings are very rough due to the cold. Whatever the case, midday allows to feel a certain ease, provided one wears comfortable clothes.

January on the West Coast of Morocco

From Rabat to Agadir, via Casablanca and Essaouira, the climatic conditions are more favorable. The temperatures are higher, which promotes a feeling of comfort during the day. In addition, precipitation is low. The weather in Morocco throughout January allows one to enjoy beautiful sunny days with a limpid sky, from dawn to dusk. This time is splendid for sunbathing.

January in Marrakech and the Hinterland of Morocco

The mornings in the hinterland are cool, like in Marrakech whose morning temperatures are around 8° C. Fortunately thanks to the rarity of the rain, the sun shines from morning to night and provides the opportunity to enjoy the comfortable warmth and a beautiful weather throughout January in Morocco. However, it is better to protect with hot clothing if planning a visit to the hinterland.
