Weather in Tunisia in October
Is October a good time to visit Tunisia?
During the day in October Tunisia enjoys plenty of hot sunshine. The only sign that summer is on the wane along the Tunisian coast is a steep drop in temperatures overnight, and the increased possibility of rain showers as the winter wet season approaches. In general, though, October is an extremely pleasant month in Tunisia when the heat is more bearable than during searing high summer weather, the sea is still warm enough to bathe in and the UV rays moderate rather than dangerously high.
Climate in Tunisia in OctoberThe dry season in Tunisia’s Mediterranean region is drawing to an end by October. The month has an average rainfall of 55mm, with an average of six wet days. This still gives a high preponderance of sunny weather for the month, and out of the 11 hours of daylight an average of seven of them should be bathed in sunlight, so you are guaranteed a tan if you opt for a Tunisian holiday in October.
When it comes to heat, Tunisia does not stint on temperatures during October. The average maximum for the month is 26°C (78.8°F), but most days are several degrees hotter than this. The cool, romantic nights are a different story, however – temperatures can drop to around 17°C (62.6°F), a pleasant respite from the day’s heat and not too chilly for a moonlit stroll.
