Rain in Marrakech

We are going to Marrakech next week (4th - 8th March) and the forecast at the moment says heavy rain showers for most of the time! Now, I come from south Wales so I'm well used to rain. Rain that stops you doing anything because it's so miserable, and lasts for 24 solid hours of a day. Inches and inches and inches of rain in one day - which continues for a week at a time. Am I right in thinking that Moroccan rain isn't as bad as that and that we will actually have plenty of time to do things in between the rain? (Please!)

Oh no! We booked Marrakech as an antidote to Welsh summers. Serves us right. But yes, weather forecasts are often wrong. And there's plenty of room in our suitcases for a brolly!

Seven day forecasts can be unreliable. However as a resident of Marrakech I would say that the chances are that you will experience some rain a few times during your stay. Otherwise it is likely to be cloudy with sunny intervals. Warm in direct sunlight (it has been 20 to 23 degrees during the day), cooler in the shade and cold (6 - 8) at night. Bring a brolly certainly!

I have been in the same situation as you, on two separate visits I have seen the 7 day weather forecast for Marrakech and it has been showing heavy rain, but when I got there it was nice and sunny...........take some appropriate clothing just incase but don't worry about it too much, it cannot be any worse than it is in Cardiff at the moment..........I haven't seen a clear blue sky for weeks!!!!!!!!!

Thanks all, I'm sure we'll be fine. (Though just to add insult to injury it's beautifully sunny and warm here in south west Wales today!)
