Marrakech Weather and When to Go

Temperatures

Marrakech is famous for its all year round dry and warm climate.

June, July and August are the hottest months, with temperatures in July and August typically around 40°C in the sun, and sometimes reaching the low 50°s. Once the sun goes down the temperature cools and in the evening there is often a pleasant cool breeze blowing from the Atlas Mountains. It’s a very dry desert heat, much easier to deal with than a tropical humid heat.
