Despite being a small country, the climate in Tunisia is quite diverse depending on the region. The southern part of the country has two seasons, a long hot summer which is then followed by a brief season of rain. The rest of the country enjoys spring, summer, fall and winter, however, these seasons are not as long as those experienced in Europe or North America.
The climate along Tunisia’s coastline enjoys a Mediterranean climate and is characterized by hot summers and warmer winters, with some rain in both spring and fall. The northern mountains tend to experience more rain than other parts of the country and have been known to see some snowfall. The central portion of Tunisia hosts a semiarid climate with considerably less rainfall. Temperatures felt in this region are more extreme during both the summer and winter than on the coast. The southern portion of Tunisia has a desert climate with hot days and cooler nights with very little rain.
Temperatures can range from high 32˚C (90˚F) in the middle of summer to as low as 7˚C (45˚F) in the winter. July and August tend to be the hottest months and December and January are the wettest months. The best time to visit the north is between March-June and September-November, and for the south, it is best to visit between September-March.
