Weather Overview for Valencia
Valencia is Spain’s third largest city and is just as vibrant as Barcelona and Madrid, with a wealth of art and culture. The port city is located on the south eastern Costa del Azahar, or the Orange Blossom Coast, where the Turia River meets the Mediterranean Sea. Like most of Spain, Valencia experiences typical Mediterranean weather conditions, consisting of warm, dry summers and mild winters. The average temperature of Valencia rarely drops below 12°C which makes it is a popular destination for tourists all year round.
However, Valencia can experience some weather hazards. As the city is close to North Africa, dust storms - caused by hot winds blowing across the Sahara - are often a problem in the area. These tend to last on average for 1-4 days and will usually hit Valencia between May and September. Another common complaint in Spain and Valencia are the droughts caused by dry weather, especially in the summer. They are unlikely to directly affect your holiday though.
Valencia is a great place to visit if you’re looking for sunshine, warm temperatures and dry weather. Visitors can enjoy everything from beaches to culture, with its City of Arts and Sciences featuring futuristic structures including a planetarium, an oceanarium and an interactive museum.

Spring brings the festival season and flowering countryside to Valencia, so it is a popular time to visit. The crowds haven’t quite picked up in time for summer so Valencia’s famed beaches aren’t as full and accommodation prices haven’t reached summer highs.
The spring-time weather in Valencia is great too! March sees an average temperature of 14°C moving up to an average daily temperature of 18°C in May. It is considerably drier in spring than autumn, however the city receives more rain in spring than summer with 34mm in March and 39mm in April. There’s still plenty of sunshine for holiday makers to enjoy though, with 9 hours in March increasing to a generous 12 hours by the time May arrives.
The mild weather and sea breeze that Valencia receives in the spring months makes it a great time for wind surfing, parasailing, kite surfing and other wind sports.

If you’re looking for sunshine, summer is the ideal time to visit Valencia. There’s an average of 12 hours of sunshine a day in June and August and 13 hours on average in July. Days tend to be very dry too, with a total of just 53mm of rain throughout June, July and August combined.
Summers in Valencia are hot, but not unbearably so. June sees an average daily temperature of 22°C, July 24°C and August is the hottest month averaging 25°C with an average maximum temperature of 30°C accompanied by mild humidity.
While temperatures are high in the summer, Valencia, like many Mediterranean coastal cities, is cooled down by the local sea breeze. This starts blowing at about midday and begins to calm by 4pm. If the heat and humidity do become a discomfort though, do as the Valencians do and hop into the Mediterranean Sea. During summer, the water temperature reaches an agreeable 26°C.

In autumn, Valencia, like other cities of a similar climate, experiences milder temperatures and heavier rainfall. The average temperature is 18°C in October dropping to 13°C in November, which is colder than summer but still pleasant.
The Spanish weather phenomenon known as Gota Fria (cold drop) arrives in Valencia in autumn, bringing stormy, unsettled weather and periods of rain along the Mediterranean coast. Gota Fria is a cold low which brings air from polar origin causing the region to cool significantly. It also brings several days of overcast, unsettling dreary weather. Autumn is the wettest time of the year in Valencia, particularly October which sees 89mm of rainfall and a 25% chance of rain.
Despite this, October and November still see an average of 9 hours of sunshine a day and sea temperatures are still warm after the summer months, with an average temperature of 18°C in October.

While the temperatures are much lower than summer, winter is still a great time to visit Valencia if you want to avoid the crowds and humidity. Visitors can still enjoy 8 hours of sunshine a day throughout the winter months, making it a perfect opportunity to sight see and explore the city in comfort.
