Climate and Weather of Tunisia

Tunisia's climate varies by region, reflecting a blend of African and Mediterranean influences. The country is known for its hot, dry summers and milder winters. In the summertime from June to September, temperatures can even exceed 40°C.

Spring in Tunisia stretches from March to May. From June to September, the entire country heats up, with August typically being the hottest month. Owing to its closeness to the Sahara Desert, the southern region endures particularly hot summers marked by elevated humidity levels, this makes the area especially arid. Temperatures in Tunisia's desert areas are consistently a few degrees higher than in other parts of the country.

Rainfall in Tunisia tends to be sporadic, but varies based on region. Coastal areas, influenced by the Mediterranean, receive the majority of their rainfall between October and February, with an annual average ranging from 400 mm to 600 mm. In contrast, the more arid regions closer to the Sahara Desert receive significantly less precipitation, often below 200 mm annually. It's worth noting that while rain is infrequent in the desert areas, when it does occur, it can be intense, leading to floods in some areas.

For those planning a visit, the best time to travel to Tunisia is between October and May. During this period, temperatures range from 12°C to 28°C.
