Weather Overview for Kos
The island of Kos, Greece, is a part of the Dodecanese islands in the Aegean Sea. This is an island that experiences dry hot summers and mild winters. The weather is of the Mediterranean type and the landscape is mostly croplands and shrublands in the island’s interior with urbanisation along its coastline.
The island is located quite close to Turkey and is the second most popular of the Dodecanese islands—the most popular island is, without a shadow of doubt, Rhodes. Kos, however, has a lot going for it; Rhodes isn’t the only island with a long and rich history. This resort island has a history that dates back several thousands of years—this is the island of Hippocrates, numerous ancient sites, complexes of ruins, and some of the most breathtaking beaches in the entire Mediterranean. This is a great place for sunbathing in summer and visiting ancient sites and museums, as well as partaking in outdoor activities in the three other seasons.
There are two main types of seasons in Kos, the cold season and the warm season. The cold season starts in the beginning of December and ends in March. During these months the average temperature stays below 15°C, which in turn results in this time of year being the off season due to fewer tourists. It should be said that the off season does usually take effect in November even though it is not considered part of the cold season. The warmer half of the year starts in late-April and runs through to October. This is when the average temperature generally doesn’t fall below 20°C and reaches highs of up to 29°C. Most of the year has winds coming from the north and northwestern front with minor winds coming in from the south. If you’re interested in the current weather forecast for this popular resort
