Extreme conditions with very strong winds may stop temporarily the ferry boats from reaching Paros and then Antiparos. Strong winds of 7-8 beaufort and up will keep ships at ports.

Mid-May to Mid-September the climate is warm and very dry. High temperatures during the summer are at about 30°C but can sometimes go up to 35°C-36°C.
Winters are mild and wet with temperatures generally in the low to mid-teens. A sunny day can sometimes creep up towards 20°C.
December is the wettest month of the year and strong storms in the Mediterranean are most common during this time. These storms bring some unpleasant weather with strong winds and a lot of rain. The Island is typically quieter this time of year.
