Weather in Madrid
- Purchase the complete Expat Arrivals Madrid Guide (PDF)
Expats will find the weather in Madrid comfortable, but not as ideal as the Mediterranean climates of Barcelona and Seville. The city generally has a pleasantly warm and dry climate, but there is a broad variation between winter and summer temperatures due to its altitude and proximity to the mountains.
The summer heat can get very intense with an average temperature of 77ºF (25ºC), and many locals even leave during August in search of cooler climes. Winter temperatures can drop as low as 32°F (0°C).
Rainfall is low and occurs mainly in late October/November and occasionally in spring.
