Weather Overview for Valencia
and spring see
brings the festival season and flowering countryside, so it is a popular time
to visit. The crowds haven’t quite picked up in time for summer so
As Valencia in Spain is close to North Africa, dust storms- caused by hot winds blowing across the Sahara- are a problem in the area.
These tend to last on average for 1-4 days, but can last for up to 2 weeks every 10 years or so.
Dust storms will usually hit Valencia between May and September. They can severely reduce visibility and irritate asthma and other respiratory problems, so always make sure you carry any medication with you if you suffer from such a problem. It’s best to stay inside when a dust storm hits.
Another common complaint in Spain are the droughts, which, though not more frequent now, tend to last for longer and are thus more of a problem. Though they are unlikely to directly affect your holiday, they can make other problems, such as bush fires, worse.
Bush fires are an issue in summer in Valencia. The dry vegetation caused by the droughts mean that they can last for longer and be more intense, so make sure you are staying in a location that is unlikely to be affected by them. 60% of the time they are either deliberately lit or the result of careless mistakes or accidents.
Periods of draught can also bring on thunder storms, hail storms and heavy rain, which in turn can lead to flash flooding. Around 10 hail storms a year are likely to be seen in Valencia, with 10-20 thunder storms. These will usually occurring Spain in the autumn or winter so the summer is the best time of the year to visit Spain if you want to entirely avoid any wet weather.
