It will obviously be cooler than it is at the moment but should still be dry and fairly warm but getting cooler in the evening. Nothing's predictable though as there is a major thunderstorm going on at the moment and torrential rain!!

Hi ,

I too am going in October.

I have read it is still very nice but can have rainfalls as the rainy season is October to May.

My advise is to take a wrap or cardigan for the evening.

Skiathos is a beautiful place. We have been 3 times now but never as late as October. Hopefully it wont spoil itself but just be prepared.

I'm certain you will like the place it is truly paradise.

Hi,

When I went to Skiathos, which was the first 2 weeks in May last year, we did have rain a couple of days. When it rains there, it really rains. You will realise this when you see the way the streets are made, all ridged and sloping into central drains. So DO take an umberella.

Its such a beautiful little island. If you have any more questions please feel free to ask. I need to put a report on but just havent got round to it. Have a lovely time.

Hi,

These sites should help:

Check out this site. In the middle of the page (History & Almanac) you can put in any date from 1996 and it will give you the weather on that given day/week/month

http://www.wunderground.com

Weather2Travel.com is also good & can tell you humidity, hrs of sunshine etc

Regards
