Weather Overview for Tsilivi
Tsilivi enjoys a typical Mediterranean climate with long,
hot, dry summers and mild rainy winters. Tsilivi sits on the northeast coast of
Zakynthos, also called Zante, one of Greece
Summer, from June
till September, is baking hot and bone dry. The average high temperature is
28°C in June and September, peaking in July and August at 31°C. Humidity is
generally quite low and rain is so rare it becomes a winter myth. The cooling
northern meltemi wind and the low humidity help to make things more comfortable,
but some may find these temperatures exhausting and unbearable.
Nighttime average lows are still near 20°C so air-conditioning is a must. The whole season is almost unbelievably sunny. A haze can develop but the sky is generally clear; June and August see twelve hours of sunshine per day and July sees a luxurious thirteen. September sees slightly reduced but still glorious levels of sunshine with around ten hours per day. The sea is warm enough for swimming in the low to mid 20s throughout the season.
Autumn, in October and November, is still very warm though a little unpredictable. The average high temperature falls to 23°C in October when the night time average low is at a refreshing 16°C. October still sees seven hours of sunshine per day and the reduced but still pleasant heat means it is still a fantastic time to visit. However, rainfall increases rapidly and heavy showers or even thunderstorms can suddenly break. These are infrequent, falling on only around seven days in the month. However, for this reason many resorts and restaurants in the area actually shut down for winter as early as mid October. November is cooler with an average high of 19°C and an average low of 12°C. Rainfall continues to increase and sunshine levels reduce further to five hour per day, though the sea is still warm enough for swimming.
Winter, from December till February, is very mild but Zakynthos is not a tropical island and visitors should not expect a typical beach holiday if visiting in this season. Sunshine levels remain modest; the average high drops to 14°C; the average low gets down to 8°C and the sea becomes bracingly cold. Temperatures can intermittently shoot up to 20°C depending on sunshine, but this is not to be relied upon. It can sometimes be grey and drizzly for days. Frosts are highly unlikely though snow has been known to fall on the highest hills.
Spring, from March till May, sees a quick return to great holiday weather. March is probably still too cool, with an average high of 16°C, for most but the average high rises to 19°C in April and 23°C in May. From mid April it is regularly 20°C or just above. The north winds can temper this slightly so it is useful to have a light extra layer to hand in the daytime, and something much warmer is a must for the nights which remain quite chilly, below 15°C. The sea does not get warm enough for swimming till the very end of the season.
