Weather Averages for Lisbon in January
Averages for Lisbon in January
January is the coolest month of the year in Lisbon but as it enjoys a sub-tropical Mediterranean climate, it enjoys fairly mild winters.
The average temperature reaches a high of 13°C (that's about 55°F), and at night can dip as low as 7°C (about 45°F).
The average monthly rain is around 109mm and there is only about 5 hours of average daily sunshine.
The average sea temperature is about 15°C (about 59°F), but with the cool temperatures and chance of rain you probably won't want to be going swimming.
As the weather can be unpredictable during the month of January, it would be best to check the local weather forecast before you travel.
