Weather In Lisbon
Lisbon has some of the mildest weather compared to any other European capital city. Despite being located on the Atlantic Ocean, the climate is similar to that of Mediterranean coastlines.
Mild Winters With Warm Summers
Summer temperatures are warm and sometimes hot, while winters are mild and damp. Lisbon sees a great deal of sunshine (over 3300 hrs per year) and about 100 days of rain a year.
The Atlantic Ocean strongly influences the weather in Lisbon, mainly because of the nearby flow of the Gulf stream. These currents ensure that the coastal city of Lisbon does not experience the extreme temperatures that can occur in central Portugal and Spain.

On average about 600 mm, or 24 inches, of rain falls annually in Lisbon, the precipitation is spread out over 100 days of the year, so there are rare days without at least some sunshine.
