Weather Overview for Zante
Zante, also known as Zakynthos, enjoys a Mediterranean climate of long, hot summers with nonstop sunshine; and mild, rainy winters. This enviable weather is found across the Ionian Islands including Lefkada and Kerkyra (
Autumn, in October and November, is warm but rainy. October sees an average high of 23°C which drops to 19°C in November – still warm. The sea also remains warm enough for swimming. However, rainfall quickly increases, falling in short storms every few days, and sunshine reduces. Nights become cold by the end of the season. This may sound dismal, but in comparison to more northerly Europe it's bright and warm – a fair trade for the occasional storm.
Winter, from December till February, is mild and wet. The average high falls to 16°C in December, and to its lowest of 14°C in January and February. Night times are very cool, around 8°C, but rarely freezing. December is the wettest month, receiving 170 mm of rain, after which rainfall lessens. It’s still preferable to more northerly climes, but not quite a 'winter sun' destination, and many hotels close for the season.

Spring, from March till May, sees Zante bursting to life as rain-fed plants bask in long hours of sunshine and increasing warmth. Rainfall drops quickly; May is in fact very dry. The average high climbs to 16°C in March, 19°C in April and 23°C in May. May is a great time to enjoy exceptional weather without the crowds of peak summer. However, night times remain cool and it takes a touch of bravery to dive into the sea.
The low mountains and northwest regions of Zante receive slightly more rain than the southeast due to the northwest prevailing winds. Southeast beaches are relatively sheltered and often a few degrees hotter.
