Weather in Libya

Libya is predominantly a desert, with one of the most severe climates on the planet. Rain is non-existent.

The harsh interior is tempered by the Mediterranean climate in the north. Libya has hot and dry summers, with cool winters and lower temperatures in the evening. In spring and autumn, Libya experiences the ghibli; a hot, dry and dusty desert wind that can blow for up to a week, raising temperatures on the coast to 122°F (50°C).

The Libyan desert has a more extreme climate. It gets extremely hot during the day and very cold at night.

The best time to visit Libya, particularly to the coastal areas, is June to October, as temperatures are a more benign 80°F (27°C).
