    What's the Weather like in Casablanca in January

    Average Sea Temperature

    January may be the coldest month of the year in Casablanca, but with average daily highs of 17°C and sea temperatures of around 18°C, there will still be plenty of people at the beach.

    The rough waves and the ongoing wind means that this is the ideal time to go surfing in Casablanca. January is right in the middle of the swell season which lasts from October to April, so expect the seas to be busy.

    Rainfall

    Along with November, January is also the second wettest month of the year in the region, only beaten by the following month of February. But with only 8 days of the month expecting any rainfall, and 60mm of precipitation throughout the entire month, the majority of every day will be dry.

    This mild winter weather is the ideal way to escape the cold back home. And with the many restaurants and cafes equipped for al fresco dining all year round, for those that want to spend time in the city without the crowds, January is a great time to visit.

    Average Sunshine Hours

    As it is winter, you can't expect too much sun when compared with the peak summer months. The average number of daily sunshine hours at this time of the year will only be about three hours per day. But this is on par with Northern European cities such as London, and it is still far warmer than any days in January back home.

    Temperature

    Average temperatures, even at this time of the year, are still a very mild 13°C, which means the chances of having a frost are negligible. And though historically temperatures have fallen to -1°C in 2005, this was the coldest ever recorded temperature in the region and very unlikely to happen again. Even in the depths of night in January, minimum temperatures average 8°C creating a very pleasant climate for everyone.
