The summers in Tripoli can be easily summed up as hot and dry. It isn’t uncommon for little to absolutely no rain from late April through October, and even the wet season can be extremely dry. January is the typically the wettest month with an average five days of rain, and that can range from light to times with heavy but passing downpours.

Despite this time of relative light rain it isn’t always the blistering heat in Libya or Tripoli however. The summer months from May through the end of September have daytime temperatures that can be from the low 90s to upper 90s, and evenings that often seldom fall below 80 degrees.

The spring and fall are milder and March and April, and October and November are among the most pleasant times to visit, this is when you can expect temperatures in the 70s during the day and 60s at night. The winter months from December through February can be a bit on the chilly side with highs in the low to mid 60s and lows in the lower 50s after dark. Most visitors won’t find this even close to cold but the temperatures do drop quickly after the sun goes down and in the desert air it can often feel cooler. Of course you won’t have to worry freezing temperatures or ever the chance the snow in Tripoli.
