The climate across the Peloponnese peninsula (including Patras) is Mediterranean, which means that the summers are generally dry and hot, while the winters experience mild temperatures with wet weather. Although Patras can be visited throughout the year, certain months can be much more comfortable to visit during than others.

On average, the hottest months of the year are July and August, during which time the daily high temperatures will generally hover in the mid to upper 80’s, with 90-degree days being fairly common. The nighttime temperatures during these months will generally drop to the mid to upper 60’s. The summer months are not only the hottest of the year, but are also the most crowded, as the time between June and August is considered the high-tourist season.

The coldest months of the year on average are January and February, during which time the daily high temperatures will reach the mid to upper 50’s. The nighttime temperatures during these months will generally drop to the lower 40’s.

The rainiest months of the year are between November and January, during which time there is a chance for rain on most days.
