Moroccans can expect warmer temperatures just as the holy month of Ramadan begins starting next Friday and potentially lasting into next week.

“The weather will remain stable with rising temperatures in the south, northern and central plains, and the northeast,” confirmed Houcine Youabed, communications officer at the General Directorate of Meteorology.

“This warm air surge from the south will push temperatures up to 35 degrees Celsius in the interior, central, and southern regions, including Taroudant and the Souss areas. Marrakesh and the southeast can expect highs between 30 and 32 degrees Celsius, while the north will see more moderate temperatures ranging from 24 to 26 degrees Celsius.”

Youabed emphasized that this increase is “normal” and coincides with the typical seasonal shift from winter to spring. He added that the rise will be felt in specific regions of the Kingdom.

Meanwhile, High and Middle Atlas highlands residents can expect rain Wednesday night, with snow possible at the peaks. Colder temperatures are forecast for the countryside highlands and high plateaus, while strong winds are expected in the southeast.

Looking ahead to Thursday, Youabed advised of potential frost formation in the mornings and nights across the Atlas highlands, countryside, and eastern high plateaus. Low clouds and fog are also anticipated during the night and morning hours in the northern and central plains, eastern regions, and the south.

Temperatures on Thursday will range between 2 and 7 degrees Celsius in the Atlas highlands, countryside, and eastern high plateaus. The southeast, Souss, and desert regions will see highs between 10 and 16 degrees Celsius, while the rest of the country can expect temperatures between 7 and 11 degrees Celsius.
