Weather now

looking for a last minute holiday for Good Friday, 7 nights. I have checked the weather for Crete and it seems approx 20 degrees over that time. From experience i know the temp shown on the web is often cooler than what it really is. Could anyone tell me what temps you are actually expericencing at the moment. Thank you

Hi there

This early in the season the weather can change dramatically from day to day...however I have spoken to a couple of greek friends over the last couple of days and the weather has been lovely and warm, sitting in the sunshine and got a bit of a tan too....but this could change tomorrow.

I always use the BBC weather web site...and its always accurate heres the link for the next fews days

Hi Again

Sorry forgot to mention...where are you staying?? dont forget that the season hasnt offically started yet, so you dont want to end up in a ghost resort!! ...as many of the tourist resorts close down for the winter and dont open again until the first week of May.

Anywhere in Crete will be warmer than anywhere here for sure. Even if you have a day or two of rain or winds, it'll still be warmer. I always ask myself, "what would I rather be doing, looking out of a pub window in England at the rain, or sitting in a bar in Crete doing the same". I always come to the same conclusion...;0)

As GB says it has to be warmer than here!!! and a great time to travel around too ...but if you do book in Crete just make sure that you book somewhere that has an all year round population.e.g. Agios Nikolaos, Rethymnon, Chania and Sitia...where everything will be open :-)

Hi

Reporting from Rethymnon, the weather is indeed very warm, especially during the day. We got south warm winds. A few here wear just a t-shirt. It gets a bit chillier at nights depending the place.

I can tell you every day the weather if you want. Just ask me

A friend of mine in Sissi wrote that it was 28C yesterday even though the Heraklion official forecast was only 20. Even 20 would be good!

Hi Again

Just be prepared for the possibility of bad weather...we are due to travel to Crete on the 30th April and I will still make sure that I do take something warm for the evenings and also there is still a possibility of rain...we travel to Crete at this time every year....and for the last few years its been fine during the day..but it can stil be cold at night.
