Don't worry about the forecasts, they're never accurate.

If it rains you can't do much about it but it usually only rains for a short time then quickly dries up but may remain overcast.

We came back last Friday after 2 great weeks, it was really hot & sunny most of the time. It rained for a short period on 2 days. On 1 of them I was snorkelling in the sea & just stayed there, it quickly passed. Whatever its doing now it can be the same or very different when you arrive so don't stress.

Have a look at the numerous other threads about the weather if you want reassurance.

Hi I am going on Thursday from Newcastle and also looked at the forecast. I think it may be just short bursts of rain hopefully though I would like to have wall to wall sunshine! Are you in Argassi? Whatever happens you can't change the weather just have to find other things to do than sunbathing. I will be doing the excursions on the days it may rain and going to Zante town for meal etc. Enjoy your hol and try not to think too much about what the weather may be - look on the bright side its better than sitting at work and looking at the weather hear!

We leave on Thursday from Gatwick. We are just staying a week, so hoping it is not a total washout. I have packed an umbrella and a pashmina. Should I start unpacking my shorts and start packing jeans?

This is our second time to Zante. Loved it so much last year and was unable to find anything anywhere of a similar nature and the same value for money(we are staying in a villa), so just decided to return.

Happy dry holidays, everyoine!

Chriswhit56, my husband said just what you said, that we can't change the weather, so stop worrying about it. It is bound to be nicer than here!

Came back last Thursday - like you I fret about the forecasts. We were led to expect rain most of the weekend we were there - we had an hour on the Friday!! Oh, and about 3 drops which accompanied the most amazing static show on the Sunday evening...

Have a great time, and just make sure you're within dashing distance of a good bar if you see those clouds bearing down on you ;-)

Sorry to be the bringer of bad news but we have had heavy rain, thunder and lightning here at some point over past 2 days but also sunny and hot in between.
