weather on Crete

The islands climate gets warmer from west to east.
Chania in the west is, due to the nearby mountains, colder than Agios Nikolaos in the east, the landscape around Sitia has a barren touch, finally in Vai the nearly tropical climate brings forth a vast palm forest.
At least the trees don't bear fruits - egyptian temperatures would be necessary.
