During wintertime, on the Atlantic coast, there is often fog and rain.

In August, in Marrakech, you will experience dry heat nearing 50C, with no fog in the forecast. Stay inside and rest in the afternoons as the locals do. Or change your plans.

The Maximum is around 47C not 50C.

It's hot but Essaouira is the coolest place during the summer time, and the high Atlas Mountains, so welcome to Morocco.

To be accurate, the maximum last July was 49.6ºC, so David's comment was spot on.

Once it gets over about 36ºC I head either for the mountains or the coast, both of which are cooler.

Hi Barbara

While as stated there is often fog and rain on the coast in Winter..

It could be what you "heard" was "smog" in Marrakech and not fog.

Smog is a product of ,among other things, petrol fumes.

So, Barbara, you have lots of time between now and August. I hope you will make plans to come to Morocco, but stay somewhere cooler than Marrakech.
