Bang on, master: a bad low is a bad thing.
Atlantic lows hardly ever stray that way. But a continental low may come to live over N Maroc and in such a case a boat sailing to its S may get exposed to not only less than nice conditions but also plenty of dust onboard and very poor visibility.
The good news is their harbours are not on the rivers hence they are relatively safer to enter in iffy conditions than places e.g. along the Portuguese Atlantic coast.
I live very close to Morocco but visited only once and not planning to return. Places where my first mate cannot walk where she wants and where tourists get bombed are out of our cruising list.
