Cadiz in Spain continues to experience ideal weather throughout the month of September – long days of sunshine and comfortable temperatures with hardly any rain. Most will likely agree that it's optimal holiday weather.

The average temperature through the month is 23°C, with a high of 26°C and a low of 20°C. You may want to plan for cooler temperatures at night by packing a few light top layers, like a cardigan or wind jacket, but otherwise pack summer attire and expect to be comfortable in light clothing.

Don't expect for the nightly temperatures to drop very drastically. Compared to Bilbao in the northern Basque region of Spain, nights in the south of the country remain mild. While Bilbao experiences similar median and high temperatures, a chill creeps into the nights when lows reach 14°C.

While it's the the third-warmest month of the year, sunlight hours drop significantly this month from the previous month of August, when the city saw a daily average of 13 hours of sunshine. A lesser but still robust 10 hours of sunshine blaze through the days of this month.

The decrease in sunshine is due in part to increased cloud coverage and rainfall. The month experiences an average of three days of rain, contributing to a total of 24mm of accumulated precipitation. That's still very little rainfall. It's a good time to visit, and beat the major increases in rainfall that begin in October, when the city sees 67mm of precipitation divided between 6 rainy days.

The best news for the month – especially if the beach represents the highlight and focus of your holiday visit – might be that sea temperatures hold steady at their annual high of 23°C. So while the city begins to experience slightly less sun, and slightly more rain, conditions remain ideal for heading to the beach to enjoy an ocean swim.
