Gozo - Weather in October

Gozo - Weather in October

My boyfriend and I are looking for a bit of sunshine towards the end of this year and are considering Gozo as it seems to tick lots of boxes for us.

However, we are looking to go in the first week of October and I am concerned about the weather. Lots of info I have read indicates that the temperature drops off and rain fall increases signficantly between the months of September and October and, as we are only going for a week, we would probably consider paying extra to go in September if the weather is likely to be a lot more predictable.

Any advice would be hugely appreciated.

I went at the beginning of October last year and the weather was beautiful. We did get a couple of rain showers, but this was at night and so did not spoil our holiday, and had completely dried up by morning. Even if it does rain it will probably be a short shower and will quickly dry up. You should get plenty of sun.

October can have very mixed weather and it is impossible to give a definitive answer.

Often at this time of year it can be extremely hot , in fact it can be hot well into November although it cools off in the late afternoon.

September would proberbly be more consistent but unfortunately there are no guarantees.

Sorry I can`t be more helpfull but long term weather prediction is not an exact science.

Take a risk because even if you do get some rain it usually doesn`t last long and soon dries up
