How is the weather in Southern Spain?

 

If you are considering a journey in southern Spain we suggest you to have a look at this roadtrip in the South of Spain (great gastronomy, hotels, resorts and value for money) and also at this itinerary around Southern Spain with interesting proposals. 

Spain´s climate can change significantly from one side to the other. This is due to the country´s geographic location, positioned in between the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea, and its altitude. Spain is in fact the third most mountainous country in Western Europe following Switzerland and Austria. Consequently, there are big and sudden changes in the weather from the North mountain face to the South within the distance of a few kilometers. There are three main climates over Spain: Atlantic, Continental and Mediterranean. These are in the right order from North to South and from West to East. Most of Spain commonly has hot and dry summers as well as cold and dry winters with a big contrast between day and night.

Many tourists come to Spain because it is commonly thought of as a country with sunny and pleasant weather all year round. This is useful as a general rule but the weather can often be unpredictable, for instance with some storms during the summer.

 

 What is the weather like in Andalusia (Southern Spain)?

Andalusia predominantly has a continental-mediterranean climate. It gets more extreme and continental the further inland you get, whereas near the coastline it has a much milder and pleasant mediterranean climate.

 

 When is the best time to visit Andalusia (Southern Spain)?

The spring and fall months of April, May, June, September, October and November are the best to visit southern Spain. This applies for cities near or facing the Mediterranean Sea like Malaga, Cadiz, Huelva or Almeria. If you are going to visit those cities that are far away from the coast (more than 30 miles) such as Sevilla, Granada, Cordoba or Jaen, the best timeframe to go would be from mid April to mid June and mid September to mid November. 

It is highly recommended to check the weather forecast of your desired destination prior to booking your trip. You will find below the average temperatures for the most important cities of southern Spain according to holiday-weather.com. You might be interested in one of our tours in southern Spain
