In November, the average temperature drops down to 16°C, created by average highs of 20°C and average lows of 11°C. Temperatures during the daytime in this season are much more bearable, making it a better time to go for holidaymakers who can’t stand the heat or wish to enjoy Torremolinos’ other attractions, such as the gorgeous Parque de la Bateria.
As the temperatures drop, the amount of rainfall increases. In October, Torremolinos is subject to an average of 42mm of precipitation which falls on nine wet days. November is much wetter, when an average of 88mm falls over the course of eight wet days. With more than ¼ of days across this season being affected by rainfall, there is a fairly good chance you’ll get a rainy day or two if you visit at this time of year, so be prepared. The most common type of precipitation you can expect to get in Torremolinos in autumn is moderate rain showers, which are sometimes preceded by thunderstorms.
Thankfully, autumn is still very sunny for the resort, so after the rain storm stops, the sun will never be far behind. In October, the resort enjoys an average of nine daily hours of sunshine, whilst November enjoys eight hours.
Sea water temperatures higher than 18°C are generally considered warm enough for swimming in. So if you visit Torremolinos in October, you’ll get to swim in a warm 21°C sea. However, in November, the average sea water temperature drops down to 18°C, which some visitors might find a bit on the cool side for swimming.
After summer, winter is the most popular time of year to visit Torremolinos, when Brits hit the resort in search of some warm winter sunshine. During this season – which is classed as December, January and February – the average temperature is a cool 11-13°C. Daily highs in the warmest part of the day range between 15°C and 18°C, whilst daily lows in the coolest part of the night fall between 7°C and 9°C. Winter is a fairly windy season, when strong winds often blow over the top of the northern mountain range and descend on the resort. When they do, these winds can often make temperatures feel even cooler than they already are, so be prepared.
Although you might get a few hours each day when the weather is warm enough to sunbathe, the evenings will always get very cold, so make sure you pack some winter warmers to keep comfortable. On average, January is the coldest month of the season, so try to avoid it if you want warm beach weather during your holiday.
