Averages for Agadir in October
October sees a drop in the number of tourists as the season draws to a close. The weather though is still very warm so this is a fantastic time of year to visit.
The average morning and evening relative humidity is unchanged from September, but due to a drop in monthly temperatures the dew point becomes a very comfortable average 15°C.
The average temperature during the day is an almost perfect 20°C with highs up to 26°C. You will still see a day or two where it goes above 32°C but over-all the temperature remains fairly constant. Lows at night drop three degrees from September norms to an average of 15°C, cool enough to ensure that you bring a light jacket to take the chill off during evening activities. It has never gotten above 36°C for as long as they have been keeping weather records for Agadir.
The record rainfall in October over the last almost 100 years was 170 mm but that was a once-in-a-lifetime event. The average monthly rain is 25mm or about one inch of drizzle or light showers over a 4 day period.
Plenty of sunshine during the day makes October seem almost like spring. Normally 78% of the days are sunny and 22% cloudy. The sun is up for over 11 hours a day all month. The UV number drops to 5 which is the low end of the high scale, so you will still need to take precautions.
The dew point is well into the comfort zone at 17°C so the air feels very pleasant in the mornings and evenings despite relative humidity averages of 88% in the mornings and 66% at night.
The average sea temperature is a very warm 21°C (that's about 68°F) so while you're relaxing and topping up your golden tan on Agadir Beach, you can take a refreshing dip in the sea or try your hand at some water sports.
