However, sun worshippers will be in paradise as the average high temperature now reaches 30°C during the day and goes no lower than 19°C at night. Both these temperatures tend to increase even further in the course of the month—the high temperature rises from 28°C to 31°C, while the low temperature increases from 18°C to 21°C. The overall average temperature is 25°C in June, which, together with September, makes it the third warmest month of the year after July and August.
With an average sea temperature of around 22°C, you can certainly have a go at some waterskiing, jet skiing, scuba diving and snorkelling. This is the first month of the year that has a sea temperature that is sufficiently high to be comfortable to most people.
When it comes to rainfall, Larnaca hardly gets any in June. The total amount of rainfall isn't more than 10mm, a monthly total that is recorded all the way from April through September. There is merely 1 day with rainfall this month and the probability that it will rain drops greatly in the course of the month, from 11% to 4%. Although precipitation is nearly non-existent, when it does happen, it is in the form of moderate rain showers or thunderstorms—they tend to be very brief, though.
June is not only one of the driest months of the year; it is also one of the sunniest. Cloud cover decreases from 16% to only 8% in the course of the month. This, combined with the longest days in the entire year, results in plenty of sunshine. On average, a day in June receives no less than 12 beautiful hours of sunshine. This is the highest number of sunshine hours per day of any month in the year—only in July is the same number also recorded.
