Weather Overview for Parga
The climate of Parga is typically Mediterranean meaning long hot dry summers and mild winters. Annual rainfall is just below 1200mm and most of this falls between October and March; summer sees very little rainfall and enjoys perfect beach weather.
Summer is what people come to Parga for; the region has great beaches and the weather is perfect. Summer really last from June to September; though there is plenty of good weather either side of these months. July and August are the peak months and average temperature is 24 to 25C.
Summer temperatures frequently climb into the 30s in the daytime and the cooling seas breezes on the coast are most welcome. Summer heat waves can even see temperature rising up to 40C on some rare occasions.
All through summer temperatures don’t drop below the high teens so you can definitely leave your warm clothes at home, but don’t forget your sun cream or your sunglasses!
Rainfall is low in summer; between June and August you rarely see rain and monthly average rainfall is 20mm or less. From September rainfall does start to increase and that months see an average of 64mm.
Autumn enjoys warm temperatures but rainfall does begin to increase. Early autumn can be a great time to visit as the crowds are fewer and the prices are cheaper. Even in October you’ll get plenty of sunny days with temperatures in the low 20s. As the season progresses, however, the temperature does cool and the rainfall does increase; late autumn and early winter time is the wettest of the year.
October averages just over 130mm of rain and November is the second wettest month of the year with an average of 187mm.
If you are going to visit in autumn it is best to go early on, just after the summer crowds have disappeared in late September.
Winter is generally mild and the coastal areas such as Parga never get cold but it can be quite wet. Average temperature is at its lowest in January and February at 9C. Lows can fall to 5 or 6C but rarely lower and highs can be in the mid teens on good sunny winter days.
Rainfall is quite high, especially at the start of winter; December sees 190mm of rainfall on average and is the wettest month of the year. After December, rainfall does begin to decrease but it remains quite wet until March.
Winter can see wet and windy weather visiting the town and it can make for a few days of unpleasant weather. On the other hand, a sunny winter day can be very pleasant indeed and quite warm.
This is a good season to visit, especially in May when the summer weather really begins to arrive.
From April the thermometers always stay in double figures, even at night, and as the days lengthen you can certainly feel summer approaching. The other advantage of spring of course, is that it’s a good deal quieter than peak summer.
