What's the weather like in Mykonos in September
By September the hottest days of summer are over but the days are still very warm and this is often thought to be the best time to visit Mykonos.
The average temperature is still 23°C but the average high/low temperatures are less at a high of 27°C and a low of 18°C. You could expect an odd day or two to hit 30°C at the start of the month. Nights are cooling off towards the end of the month when the low can drop.
Average rainfall is on the increase at 97mm falling over four days, the highest it has been since March. From now until November when the highest amount of rainfall is recorded, it will increase every month to a high of more than 150mm. However, the chance of rain is still low this month at just 4% so it is unlikely to affect your holiday plans.

September's sea temperature is still 24°C before it starts to cool off towards the end of October when it drops to 22°C so make the most of it and enjoy splashing around. Days by the beach can still be pleasant in October before the cooler temperatures take over and winter starts.
