Summer, as in most Mediterranean destinations, is the longest season and with average high temperatures in the 20’s lasting from May till October. Water activities provide cooling breaks essential in the peak months as temperatures in Limassol can often reach mid 30’s.
June, July and August see average highs between 27°C and 29°C. May and October see less severe highs in the mid 20s. Due to its proximity to the ocean Limassol is slightly cooler than inland areas. Like many Mediterranean coastal resorts, the area is cooled by evening sea breezes which offer much needed relief from the daytime heat. Evening temperatures cool off pleasantly at the beginning and end of the season but around the peak months they stay around the low 20’s. In combination with the low humidity, this level of heat is generally not uncomfortable. These hot nights allow for fun to extend long past sundown.
days see many hours of sunshine beginning from May and continuing through until
levels peak in June and July at 12 hours per day.
Limassol is known for its famous wine festivals held in August so this is a popular time to visit. The temperatures can soar into the high 30’s at this time so a hat, sunscreen and lightweight clothing will be needed.
After a short autumn in November the milder temperatures and abundant rainfall of winter set in. This season lasts from around early December till late February and resembles early British autumns.
The average minimum temperatures throughout the winter months sit at 6°C, 7°C and 8°C through December, January and February respectively. This is pretty chilly and you’ll certainly need a coat, but it rarely gets down to freezing and snow and frost are rare. Daytime temperatures are highly susceptible to the sun and wind. The average high in January is 15°C while it is one or two degrees higher in the surrounding months. On sunny days it can get up to 20°C but wet and windy weather can see the daytime temperature not climbing much higher than the night time lows.
