Weather in Cadiz
Cadiz is classified as having a temperate climate with dry and hot summers. This Spanish province receives healthy doses of sunshine year round, with sunshine hours peaking in July when the province basks in fourteen hours of unobstructed sunlight per day. The port city receives over 300 days of sunshine annually.
Located on the Atlantic coast of Spain, the city enjoys milder climates year-round when compared to similar resorts on the Mediterranean coast; winters don't drop as cold, and summers don't burn as hot. Due to its position on a narrow peninsula, the city experiences maritime influences, namely occasional strong winds.
The temperature reaches a high in August at 29°C, and dips to its annual lows in January and February when nighttime temperatures can bow to 9°C. As Europe's oldest inhabited city, this resort is a popular travel destination for plenty of good reasons, much of which is related to the outstanding, moderate weather of all four seasons.

During the hottest summer months, nighttime temperatures fall to a warm, temperate 21°C. Cadiz is least humid during the summer months, falling below 35% humidity (comfortable) for 3 out of 4 days through the season.

This season begins warm, but sees the most dramatic drop in temperatures when compared to the rest of the year. Seasonal highs in September compare with summer when the temperature can rise to a high of 26°C, but the situation is considerably colder by November, when nighttime lows drop to 13°C. Expect the average temperature for the three month period to be near a comfortable 20°C.

The Spanish coastline of Cadiz
Cadiz is a sort of pinnacle for moderate weather, and in its typical fashion there is very little by way of weather hazards for the city – or even for the province at large. The most unexpected weather feature in the city may be the winds. Be prepared, no matter what time of year you visit, for strong gusts of wind to blow off the ocean. While these winds are seldom continuous or disruptive, they can be uncomfortable if you are under prepared. Pack some equivalent of a wind jacket to protect against the winds. And know that unexpected weather is always a possibility, no matter where you are in the world: continually check the local forecast to stay informed about changing conditions.
