Fez- According to the March-April issue of the American Magazine Weatherwise, Casablanca ranks the 3rd best weather place in the world with best weather year round.
According the data collected by the Magazine, which are based on the World Meteorological Organization, Viña del Mar, in Chile ranks first followed by Las Palmas, Gran Canaria in Spain, the northwestern coast of Morocco, Sassari, Sardinia (Italy), Barcelona, Lisbon, California, Adelaide (Australia), Coastal Western Cape (South Africa), and Manjimup Region of the Extreme South West Region of Western Australia.
Referring to weather conditions in the Northwestern coast of Morocco, the author of the survey says: “Strongly moderated by cold currents of the Atlantic Ocean, the weather of the northwestern coast of Morocco experiences little seasonal variability and extremely mild temperatures year round. According to World Meteorological Organization data for Casablanca, which lies in the heart of this region, January experiences an average daily high of 63°F and a mean nighttime low of 45°F.”
“The warmest month, August, experiences an average daily high of 80°F and a nighttime low of 70°F. Just 5.75 inches of rain, on average, falls on Casablanca during December, the wettest month. July, the driest month, experiences less than half an inch. Severe weather conditions, of all types, almost never descend on this coastline,” he adds.
The author of the survey cites a study published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, by Richard Lucas and Nicole Lawless, according to which “people who dwell in sunnier areas tend to be happier than those living in cloudier environments.”
