Costa Dorada Weather December Averages, Spain
What's the weather like in Costa Dorada in December?
During the last month of the year, visitors will find that this is still a great time to visit Costa Dorada and experience a holiday while enjoying mild temperatures and the nearby beaches. In December, fares are lower than other peak months as are hotel prices making this a great time of the year to score a great travel deal.
While it might be too chilly to actually enjoy the water, the beaches are still nice. However, the average sea surface temperature for the month is a chilly 15°C (59°F). As a result, it is too cold to go into the waters.
Even though it may be too cold to swim, there is still plenty to do on land. Vacationers may want to consult an extended forecast before leaving home, but afternoon temperatures will be mild enough to enjoy the great outdoor activities of the region. However, it is important to bring something warm enough for the early morning hours when average overnight lows will dip to 7°C (45°F). Temperatures in the afternoon will climb to a mild 17°C (63°F). As a result, long sleeves may still be needed into the later daytime hours. The average daily temperature for the month is 12°C (54°F).
While temperatures might be cooler, visitors can still expect to see an average of 8 hours of sunshine per day. The chance of experiencing a sunny day is still 100 percent as compared to only a 20 percent chance of experiencing rain showers which is excellent in comparison to conditions in northern Europe.
Overall, the month is a dry one with only 20mm of precipitation expected. This rain will fall over an average of only 6 days making most of the month pleasant. As a result, vacationers can still take advantage of the region and outdoor activities provided they dress appropriately for any cool conditions either in the morning or afternoon.
