The first really cold weather of the winter has arrived in Morocco with the Fez Medina recording morning temperatures as low as 2 degrees Celsius
If cold weather is no deterrent, then the region inland from Marrakech, such as the Ourika Valley, Asni Valley and Oukaimeden Valley, are the perfect places to get a feel for Morocco's alpine scenery. But be warned that the temperatures over the next few days are expected to be very cold. For the Toubkal area it will be mostly dry. Temperatures will be below freezing (max -3°C on Fri morning, min -6°C on Sun morning). Wind will be generally light.
None of the ski resorts are reporting significant snowfalls yet, but by mid-December, conditions should improve.
|Marrakech is expecting mild temperatures|
In the major tourist destinations the weather should be fine over the coming week. Casablanca and Rabat highs should be in the low 20s, while Marrakech will be slightly warmer averaging around 25 Celsius. Agadir will also average around 25 degrees.
Travellers to the sand dunes of Merzouga will have sunny days around 21 degrees but at night the temperature drops dramatically to between 3 and 5 Celsius.
