Weather details in december

Freshness in December is more pronounced due to the more intense rainfall. Half the month is rainy. Since the winter season is very close, it is quite normal to expect temperatures to be milder or even cooler - such as morning temperatures that also approach winter temperatures as the sun is quite slow to rise. At the beginning of the month, the thermometer indicates a range of around 16° C and continues its descent to reach a temperature that is identical to that of January towards the end of the month. This is the time to take out the warm clothes for more comfort.

The climate is constant throughout December in Crete. From morning to night, the feeling of freshness remains almost permanent - even if the temperature rises a few degrees Celsius in the middle of the day - it is still cold.

This is true provided that one covers well so as not to feel inconvenienced by the mild temperatures. If one is not sensitive to the cold weather throughout December in Crete, then it will be possible to fully appreciate the beauty of the Crete island.
