wondering about the recent weather? Arrival next tuesday!

Hi!

I am coming to Almyrida next week and I was wondering about the weather? I have seen it is forecast to rain on the Tuesday we arrive, how has the weather been? I'm worried we're not going to get as much sun as I hoped and I'm only there for a week!

A weather forecast 8 days ahead for Crete is about as accurate as reading coffee grounds.

The weather will be .... weathery! ;-)

I’m certainly no expert, but in my 22+ years of visiting Crete between late April and early October I have to say I have been exceptionally lucky with the weather, and although we’ve experienced the odd storm or shower, they have mainly been short lived and quite refreshing after the heat.

The weather can't be guaranteed anywhere. One year we were in Rhodes and were told 'It never rains here in September' by a local. Two days later is absolutely hammered down. Next time we saw the same person they said 'I've never seen that before'. Forecasts are about as reliable as those in the UK.

Re. "Forecasts are about as reliable as those in the UK."

Far less reliable than in the UK. Crete is a small island with high mountains and consists almost entirely of microclimates. Just for a start, yearly precipitations vary from 250mm to 2500mm .
