Today’s weather in Crete
The location of the island of Crete makes it one of those rare places where some people may not really know what to expect. It is not that the weather will make a rapid change and snow will start falling. What happens with Crete weather is that it is influenced by both the Mediterranean weather as well as northern Africa weather. Most of the time a person visiting the Island will experience Crete weather which is mostly like the other places in the European side of the Mediterranean Sea, but Africa does show its weather once in a while.
Another thing that you should think of when figuring out Crete weather is that there are both higher elevation mountains as well as plains. The higher you get in elevation the colder the weather will feel. Higher elevations also mean that you will see some snow in the Crete winter.
