Libya Visitor Information

Along the Tripolitanian coast, summer temperatures range between 40.6°C and 46°C (105°F and 115°F); further south, temperatures are even higher.

The ghibli, a hot, dry desert wind, can change temperatures by 17° - 22°C (30° -40°F) in both summer and winter. Rainfall varies from region to region. The Jabal areas of the north receive a yearly average of 15 to 20 inches. Other regions have less than 8 inches. Rain falls generally in a short winter period and frequently causes floods.
