7 Days Weather in Corfu

How is Corfu Weather usually

The weather in Corfu is usually mild and humid, with plenty of rain and mostly south or southeast winds during the autumn.

Winters are mild with lots of rain which sometimes is getting heavy and stormy while it almost never rains during the hot summertime.

The snow is something unknown except at the top of Mount Pantokrator, it has snowed in the lowlands though only around 3 times in the last 50 years.

During the winter winds are generally southeasterly and rains can hold up for many days, the coldest days are the first 20 days of January where temperatures approach zero but rarely fall below it.

Winds then are mostly north or northeast, This season does not exceed 10 to 15 days per year and happens usually in January, without prejudice to other months.

During these days the temperature can fall really low and can approach zero, the north winds are weak and are accompanied almost always by sunshine so it can not snow, humidity almost disappears and it is the best season of winter.

We have a special name for this season taken from Greek mythology, it is the days of Alkionides.

Summer months are usually hot and dry, at times can get really hot (over 120°F) with waves of heat in July and August but generally, temperatures do not exceed 90°F

Also, snow is possible in the interiors of the island. The harsh conditions can continue for the whole month up to February but sometimes the weather change to a nice and dry period with mild north winds and plenty of Sunshine, this happens in the last 10 days of December and is a nice period called small summer or Alkionides days.

February is still a winter month so a very cold month almost the same as January, temperatures vary from year to year with the average being around 10°C (50°F).

February can get worse than December at times, with low temperatures still around freezing, and more heavy rains with many dark cloudy days are expected. The days though are getting longer and there is a sense of the coming Spring around.

The average temp for March in Corfu is around 20°C (68°F), but it can drop a lot or can rise up to 25°C (80°F). March is still a winter month, it is strange and unpredictable, sometimes cold and rainy worse than February, but sometimes dry Years can get really hot to a point that resembles June. It is annoying though because the humidity is still very high up to 100% at times.

However the weather in Corfu is quite unpredictable, this is an island very difficult for forecasters, almost any meteorological service can not predict the weather in Corfu, most systems completely fall out in their predictions.

So if you hear that we expect rain, then we probably have more sun, and if the prediction is good, most likely we will have rain.

The old fishermen are still more accurate in their forecasts as they know better the local peculiarities.

Summary of Corfu Weather
