What is the overall climate: is it extremely hot or cold, wet or dry, at any time of year, for example?

Temperate; a beautiful sunny day in Algiers really does wonders for your mood and reminds you why the French wanted to stay. - Sep 19, 2016
Weather is actually really great. It gets hot in the summer with little rain. Sometime winners can be rainy and gray. But you are getting 8-9 months of great weather. - Jun 9, 2016
A couple of months during the summer can get into the 90s F but humidity is low. Winters are rainy and a little cold, but usually nothing below 40F. It's quite temperate here. - Mar 15, 2014
Weather is good, a couple of hot weeks in the summer and few cold weeks in the winter - but there is a rainy season. - Oct 25, 2013
The weather is nice -- mediterranean and moderate. Summer has maybe three really hot weeks per year. The rest of the time, it is not bad, certainly nicer than places in the Gulf. In the winter, the weather changes frequently. You will rarely have long stretches of cold or rainy days during winter. - Dec 18, 2011
