Weather in Morocco in January and any comments on OAT trip

Taking a OAT trip in mid January to Rabat, Volubillis, Fez,Erffoud, Rissani, tented camping near Merzouga,, Tineghir, Dades Valley, Ait Benhaddou, Marrakesh.
Wondering about weather, kind of clothing we might need and any reviews of OAT trip to Morocco.
Thanks for any advice. We are returning to States after a year in Melbourne so trying to figure out what we need to pack,

It may be sunny and kind of warm but gets extremely chilly at night... have a sweater/ jacket to add on when needed... the tented camping I would advise on bringing warm hats with you, glaves too, do not forget flash light, sun glasses & wiper--handsantizer..
Note that it may shower too during that time of year especially North Fez, Rabat..etc
Someone may comment on OAT.
Best

Oops!, iPad spell check is a killer! Meant to say, "figured it might be chilly in the desert at night......"

I toured Morocco with Intrepid in November a few years back. It was very chilly in the mountains but doesn't look like you're going there. I did one trip with OAT and swore "never again", but a lot of people like them.

January can be chilly some areas. Be prepared with layers as temps can vary widely And in the desert, even more layers... socks, thermals, gloves, scarves... especially once the sun sets.
