Normally the climate in Morocco remains fairly dry for the most time of the year; expect just little rain between the months of November and March.

The temperature is however incredibly high in the southern and also in the south eastern areas of the desert. Conversely,    the temperature drops significantly in the elevated areas of the mountainous to the extent of even the place getting to freezing point at night.
