Weather in Mykonos
Located about 150 kilometres to the southeast ofÂ AthensÂ in the warm Aegean Sea lies the vibrant Greek island of Mykonos. It is one of the most popular ofÂ Greece's holiday spots and attracts many people coming for the beaches and nightlife offered by the island and its many attractions. The excellent year-round weather, of course, also plays a major role in the attractiveness of this particular island.
With more than 300 days of sunshine each year and the majority of rain falling in the colder months, theÂ weatherÂ is ideal for beach holidays and exploratingÂ of the island's many historicalÂ attractions. Mykonos is one of theÂ Cyclades Islands, a series of spectacular Greek islands made up of stunning sandy beaches, rocky shores and inland hills, green vegetation, rivers and world-famous white towns. Mykonos in particular is a destination renowned for its Cycladic architecture, blindingly white houses and exquisite beaches.
JulyÂ is the hottest month with the highest sea temperature and number of sunshine hours each day. The coldest months are JanuaryÂ andÂ FebruaryÂ where the thermometer shows lows below 10Â°C during the day. Most rainfall is seen inÂ NovemberÂ when the average rainfall for the month is around 170mm falling over 10 days. Generally speaking, anytime between May and October would be a downright great time to visit Mykonos. The days are hot with the sea temperature warm enough to swim, while a cooling breeze offers some welcome relief during the hottest summer months.

Spring weather in Mykonos
Spring could be the best time to visit Mykonos with its warm days and plenty of sunshine but little rain. The beaches will be much quieter and free from tourists than the summer month, but it must be said that the nightlife is better in summer.
ByÂ May,Â the sea temperature has increased to 19Â°C and the sunshine hours to 12 per day, making this an extremely pleasant time of year to visit. RainfallÂ has decreased to around 33mm for the month compared to a rather high 94mm inÂ March, so you can see the transformation in spring is remarkable.Â RainfallÂ does drop quite a lot in the course of spring and while March already is a fine month for a visit, May is arguably one of the best months of the year in Mykonos.
The temperatures rise rapidly throughout the season as wellâ€”from a 12Â°C average in March to 15Â°C inÂ AprilÂ to 19Â°C in May. The average daily high and low temperatures also increase in a similar matter, respectively from 15Â°C to 23Â°C and from 8Â°C to 14Â°C.
Summer weather in Mykonos
The weather in high summer, duringÂ JulyÂ andÂ August, features daytime temperatures reaching into the 30s, causing people to flock to the island and enjoy the long and sunny afternoons and then experience the nightlife in the many bars and clubs.Â SunshineÂ is extremely abundant this time of year. July is the sunniest month with its 14 glorious hours ofÂ sunshine per day. June and August have 13 hours per day, while September has 10 hours.
FromÂ JuneÂ through toÂ September, a pleasant average temperature of 23Â°C to 26Â°C, with occasional heat waves of higher temperatures, makes the coastal areas the most popular. Nighttime low temperatures average between 18Â°C and 21Â°C in summer, making the evenings and nights very warm. TheÂ average sea temperatureÂ rises to 24Â°C for pleasant swimming and other water-based activities. Cooling sea breezes make those higher temperatures a lot more bearable. The famous "Meltimi Wind" blows only during summer and helps cool the coastal areas.
Rain is infrequent during the summer months and the season is ruled by clear skies and plenty of sunshine. June, July and August are the driest months of the yearâ€”in that order. There are only 1 to 4 days with any precipitation per month in the summer season.
Autumn weather in Mykonos
October,Â as the start of autumn, still enjoys weather more like summer with sunny days, and temperatures around 22Â°C in the afternoons and nighttime temperatures in the mid-teens. The overallÂ average temperatureÂ in the first month of autumn is still a comfortable 19Â°C.Â NovemberÂ is slightly cooler with an average temperature of 14Â°C and nighttime lows around 11Â°C.
Rainfall has increased to 167mm falling over 8 days by October and it will get wetter in November, which receives 170mm. Those two autumn months are the two wettest months of the year in Mykonos. Because of this significant increase in rainfall since summer, the sky is much cloudier and, therefore, sunshine is limited. October has 9 sunshine hours per day on average, while November has 8â€”two numbers that all still quite high by all accounts.
Winter weather in Mykonos
The mild, but wet winters bring heavy storms with strong winds and just an average of 6 to 7 hours of sunshine per day in Mykonos, although this is still better than most European resorts during winterâ€”in fact, you will probably see some sunshine over Christmas!
DecemberÂ has an average high temperature of 13Â°C. Often, after the storms have gone, the temperature rises to the teens and the sun will shine for the rest of the day. At night, the mercury drops to anÂ average lowÂ of 8Â°C. December's average temperature is 10Â°C. ByÂ JanuaryÂ andÂ FebruaryÂ the average low temperatures have dropped to 6Â°C and the average high temperatures to 12Â°C. The average temperature in mid-winter is 9Â°C.
Winter is in the middle of the wetter part of the year in Mykonos. Although the two autumn months were the wettest of them all, the winter months aren't too far behind. There is between 135mm and 165mm of precipitation in total per month. There are, however, only 6 to 8 days with rainfall per month, which indicates that rainfall happens in occasional heavy rain showers and storms.
Swimming won't be possible this seasonâ€”only for the hardiest visitors, perhapsâ€”as the sea temperature now averages 15Â°C to 17Â°C.
