The weather of Sikinos is like the weather of most Cycladic islands, that is very warm in summer and mild in winter. The warm but pleasant weather generally starts in April and lasts until late September. The temperature is hot, at about 33 degrees in summer but northern winds blow often and make the atmosphere comfortable. These winds are called Meltemia and are quite strong, as in all Greek islands. Winter on Sikinos is not particularly cold, just very windy. It rarely snows and sometimes it rains. Temperatures are not very low, as they do not fall below 5 degrees.
