Cyprus Seasons
Information and suggestions on what to wear and what to do during the seasons of Cyprus. One of the benefits of being a Mediterranean island is the plentiful sunshine throughout the year and Cyprus is no exception. In fact, Cyprus seasons epitomises the ideal weather of the region with sunny days and fine temperatures almost every day of the year. Extremes of temperatures are rare, giving Cyprus weather something to offer every month of the year, whether it's swimming, enjoying cultural and historic sites, festival occasions or just taking in the sunshine on your annual holiday. While seasonal fluctuations in Cyprus weather are not drastic, they are different. We have provided you with weather patterns experienced through the Cyprus seasons:
Cyprus Summer Weather: Late May - Mid October
When it is very hot: Summer stretches from mid-May to mid-October and means high temperatures, cloudless skies and cooling breezes from the sea and coastal areas. It's the ideal season for swimming, sunbathing and a whole range of water sports from sailing to scuba diving. At this time of year, explore the archaeological sites early in the morning or in late afternoon, avoiding the hottest part of the day. It's always a good idea to bring along sun protection, such as sunscreen and a broad-brimmed hat. Even in the height of summer when it's 32C+ (90F+) degrees at the beach (and warmer inland), temperatures are refreshingly cooler on coastal areas and in the Troodos, making the coast and mountains ideal for hiking or a simply relaxing walk. You can find your ideal Cyprus weather temperatures even in the middle of the summer. The days of September and October are still very sunny and the water warm enough for comfortable swimming. A short drive from Paphos is Limassol (Lemesos) and the first ten days of September bring the annual Wine Festival. A time of the year not to be missed.

Cyprus Autumn Weather: Mid October - November
Warm and Sunny Toward the end of October evenings do tend to get cooler. However in October and through November the leaves change colour in the Troodos and vineyards taking on a gold and crimson hues against a backdrop of crystal clear sunlight. In Cyprus, even mid-November can feel like summer to visitors, but by month's end medium-weight apparel for the late afternoons and evenings will enhance the traveller's experience. It is still possible to enjoy swimming, while inland excursions to villages and vineyards for wine tasting can be very enjoyable. These months also bring with it the annual Cyprian festival, with prestigious local and international musical and dramatic performances at venues throughout Cyprus.

Cyprus Winter Weather:  December - January
Warm days, Colder nights: December and January are the months of Mediterranean winter, bringing the possibility of rain, but still an average of six hours of bright sunshine a day. The first orchids bloom in January in Cyprus.
This is the time of year when smaller Mediterranean destinations shut down for the season, but not so Cyprus. The island is a major business centre and has many important heritage sites and museums, all at their least crowded in winter. The cultural calendar is also alive and well throughout the winter, with new events coming all the time. The summer resort of Paphos offers a "Cultural Winter" with classical music concerts and modern and folk dance performances.
Cyprus Spring Weather: February - Late May
Delightful all-round weather:  February there is occasional rain, and often snow in the Troodos Mountains for those who like their skiing. Ski in the mornings and sunbathe on the beaches in the glorious sunshine afternoons and by mid-February the countryside is already alive with fresh green meadows, almond and fruit  trees in bloom with mind blowing aromas of orange blossom. March days can still be cool with a daytime Cyprus weather temperatures around 19C or 65F, 9C or 40F at night, but steadily moderate. Early spring is a wonderful time to visit Cyprus, with pleasant daytime temperatures and many of the ancient ruins framed by a carpet of red anemones and other wildflowers.
In April and into the middle of May spring is in full force. This is an ideal time for nature hikes and off-road adventures into the pristine Akamas Peninsula. Cyprus has 1,950 species of flowering plants, 140 of which grow nowhere else but on the island, and in the Akamas region alone, there are 700 plant species, of which 40 are endemic.
From February to April, pink cyclamen sprouts up from rocky foothills and thickets and forms a riveting adornment to the Baths of Aphrodite. From March to April, the pink wavy-leaved monkey orchid grows in dense patches around Pafos. If summer in Cyprus is the place to bask in the sunshine, then spring is the time to savour the natural beauty of the island in bloom.

Summer Forecast - June to September
Cyprus Weather has high temperatures during summer months and are coupled with almost no rain. Temperatures peak in July and August when daytime high temperatures in the mid 30c - 40c are not uncommon. The average temperature is around 30c for the entire summer season. Fairly low humidity and sea breezes help to keep things more comfortable but it is always very hot and taking a siesta in the peak of the day is advisable. The sunshine hours are 12 hours per day in June and July and is only slightly shier in the following months. From June till September it is very rare to experience a rainy day, although the odd shower may appear. The sea temperature peaks in July, August and September at 24c.

Autumn  Forecast - October to November
Cyprus Weather remains excellent with the tourist crowds thinning out. The temperature reduces to an average high of 26c in October to 22c in November and to average lows of 16c and 12c respectively. Autumn temperatures are more comfortable than the summers long hot humid days and nights. Autumn days are shorter with day temperatures more acceptable followed by cooler nights would seem to be preferable for the tourist, but summer remains the most popular season. October sees a little rain and the end of November heralds the start of the wet season though you will still only get about seven days per month of rainfall on average. Showers are usually short but heavy and at night. Occasionally certain areas in Cyprus can get strong thunderstorms with heavy localised rainfall. Thunderstorms are at their most common in Autumn and Winter, but sunshine levels still remain high and the sea stays more than warm enough for swimming.

Winter Forecast - December to February
Cyprus Weather experiences an exceptionally mild winter. In fact on many days, one might sit comfortably in a t-shirt and shorts in the midday sun as temperatures can still reach upwards of 20c. The average high temperatur e decreases to 19c in December and 17c in January and February. The average low does fall to 10c in the evenings and on the very rare occasion can touch 0c in the higher sea level and mountain regions. The warm days are sometimes interrupted with cool blustery winds and the nights are always colder at this time of the year. January is the wettest and coldest month, with average rainfall seeing nine days. The yearly rainfall is just above 400mm on average and much of this falls in the short, heavy winter downpours.  The sun stays out for around five hours per day and the sea is debatably just warm enough for swimming. Those that brave swimming on British seaside holidays will find the 17c water positively balmy. If you are holidaying in Paphos in the Winter months and find yourself wanting some proper Winter weather, you can find it in the nearby Troodos Mountains. Generally, there is snow in the higher mountains, that reach up to 2000m, between January to March, so you can ski in the early mornings then sunbathe in the afternoon.

Spring Forecast - March to May
Cyprus Weather between March to May beats any English summers hands down as It is sunnier, hotter and drier. It is also outside of the peak tourist summer season. The average high temperature rises to 18c in March, 21c in April and 24c in May. The average low temperature stays around 10c in March evenings and April but gets up to 14c in the later part of April. From early March beach days resume, though the sea is still a bit nippy and cool winds can inspire the odd shiver. The clouds stampede away taking the rain with them and leaving instead longer hours of sunshine. March sees seven hours of sun per day, April nine and May ten. May sees very little rainfall and it steadily decreases from the beginning of the season. From the end of March rain becomes a forgotten inconvenience with only the odd, gentle reminder. This is the season Europeans should choose to visit the sunny island of Cyprus for their vacations.
