December starts the mild Mediterranean winter. The weather can be changeable, although it is most likely to be bright and either sunny or cloudy with sunny spells. However, meteorological statistics show that December is the rainiest month of all in Cyprus.

It usually rains up to seven days per month. Periods of disturbed weather can last from one to three days in a row. December, however, is the warmest among the three winter months. Average maximum temperature for December is 19°C on the coast and 17°C inland, about two degrees higher than in January and February. The mild temperatures of the daytime should not trick you, though, since evenings and nights are cold with average temperatures of 9°C-10°C on the coast and 7°C inland. On the mountains air warms up to 8°C at the daytime and cools down till 3°C at night. Except rain, there is also a possibility of hail. Frosts are frequent inland but rarely severe.

You will mostly use light winter clothes. It is also recommended to bring jeans, pullovers, and a warm jacket for the night time. No need to bring your heavy coat. Also, a couple of T-shirts and short for the sunny days. It does not rain too much in December however you will need an umbrella for those few rainy days. The rain does not last for long so your would probably wont stay at your hotel the whole day. Sunglasses are always handy. Below are a few photos I have taken during December so that you can get a better idea of the weather and what most people wear.
