The Cyclades islands (of which Mykonos is one) have a typically Mediterranean climate with hot, dry summers and milder winters. In July and August the mercury can soar to 40°C (over 100°F) in the shade just about anywhere in the country, although the average high on Mykonos in these months is a gorgeous 27°C (81°F). July and August are also the months of the meltemi, a strong northerly wind that sweeps the eastern coast of mainland Greece and the Aegean islands, especially the Cyclades. The wind is a mixed blessing: it reduces humidity, but plays havoc with ferry schedules and sends everything flying - from beach umbrellas to washing hanging out to dry.
November is when the rains start, and the weather stays cool and wet until February - although there are also occasional winter days with clear blue skies and sunshine, with December and January averages hovering around 15°C (59°F). This period is when the locals have the islands to themselves - Mykonos and other islands go into hibernation between late November and early April. Easter is when Greece starts repainting and rolling up the shutters, and from late June until mid-September it's sheer summer madness.
