Morocco trip In March

Hi There me and a mate are planning on riding around and through Morocco in March next year, Just about to start planning the route once I go through all the books and print outs that Ive sourced from here and other sites, But one thing is playing on my mind the climate / weather conditions at that time of the year, Does any one have any advise on where to stay well clear from, Really want to do the atlas mountains the rif and some desert work we will be both on XT660z, Any advise would be much appreciated this is the first trip of this kind we have ever done, but hopefully many more will follow
Oh by the way if any one else is interested the more the merrier

Outside of June-August the weather in Morocco is as unpredictable as elsewhere in the world. You could get great weather, you might not. So you need to have alternate plans. Generally speaking the Rif is the wettest place in Morocco, whilst south and east of the High Atlas is the driest.
