Weather in Corsica

Before leaving for your holiday, it is just as essential to do some research on the weather that the town may have in all seasons. Even though Corsica benefits from a Mediterranean climate with warm summers and mild winters, the temperature variations can occur at any time, and that might bring about possible precipitation, which could mess the holiday up. So, be on the lookout for the weather in Corsica so that you can get a quiet stay on the island of beauty!

Placed under the influence of the Mediterranean, Corsica takes advantage of an ideal climate for most of the year. To take fully advantage of the sun, it is advisable to visit the city between May and June or September and October, periods during which the heat dominates considerably offering travelers the chance to make the most of their holidays in excellent conditions.

In Corsica, the maximum temperature can show a value of 30 ° C, but on average, the thermometer stagnates on 25 ° C during the summer season. In winter, the weather is mild and fresh, giving travelers a favorable climate for outings in the wilderness without you suffocating or sweating heat.

The weather is also variable according to each region of Corsica. On the high mountains, for example, the peaks are often snowed during the winter seasons from 800 m altitude. You have to think about equipping yourself properly in the event that you want to go mountaineering, because abundant rainfall can occur (spread over a limited number of days: between 50 and 70 per year).

Each year, Corsica has an average temperature of 16 ° C. The poorest periods to be considered are between January and March or November and December during which rainfall reaches 800 to 1500 mm each year. So as to discover the island of beauty at its best light, spring is the ideal season when nature blooms making the landscapes delightful and particularly endearing.
