Weather Overview for Paralimni
Paralimni enjoys a dry Mediterranean climate with hot
summers, mild winters and plenty of sunshine. The resort is in the Greek
controlled area of Cyprus
Summer, from June
till September, sees temperatures soaring under the relentless sun. Twelve
hours of sunshine per day is the norm during peak months. The average high
temperature of July and August is 31°C but it regularly gets into the mid 30s.
Away from the sea and with its windmill-powered irrigation system in neglect,
there is little to temper the heat of the summer. Even the north-westerly winds
that blow across
Autumn, in October and November, is wetter, cooler and generally much more pleasant. Rainfall levels increase but the short storms are more likely to provide relief than irritation. The average high temperature cools to the high 20s in October and the low 20s in November. Night times are refreshingly cool.
Winter, from December till February, is mild and rainy. The average high temperature falls to a low of 15°C in January when the night time low is around 7°C. December is the wettest month though the whole season in generally unpredictable; it can sometimes get quite cold, even down to freezing, but on other days it warms up so much that you might find yourself sitting outside in a t-shirt. Further up in the mountains snow often falls.
Spring, from March till May, is the best time to visit this town; it heats up, the sun comes out, the plants bud and blossom. From mid March temperatures in the low 20s are to be expected; in May the average high is already an optimum 25°C. Conditions are generally more comfortable than the boiling peak of the summer.
Paralimni owes its climate to its inland location on
