McGregor borders on the Little Karoo, and the climate can best be described as "comfortable".

Summer days are pleasantly warm although the month of February can be seriously hot. The South Easterly gales which blow in Cape Town in summer are practically non-existent here, but a comparatively light wind blows for a few hours in the afternoons, which helps to keep the village cool.

The winters are short and as the annual rainfall is only about 200mm, they are comparatively dry. There is no air pollution, and at night those who are romantic can enjoy a sight seldom seen by city-dwellers - a star-filled sky.
