Costa Blanca Climate - Articles Surfing
If you are looking for a rather constant and beautiful climate to enjoy on your travels, you should consider Costa Blanca in Spain. The Costa Blanca weather is almost always predictable and perfect for tourists and residents alike. The area is very dry, one of the driest areas of the whole country. That means little rain, and an average of 300 days of sunshine a year.
When it comes to the benefits of this kind of weather, consider your health. The climate is so perfect, that World Health Organization has labeled this region to be one of the healthiest climates in the world. The reason for the designation is the mild and consistent weather.
Seasons in Costa Blanca
While many picture winter as a cold and miserable time, this is not the case in Costa Blanca. In this area the winter temperatures stay in the area of 45 degrees Fahrenheit (8 degrees Celsius) and many days see temperatures in the lower 60s. This means you can spend a lot of time out in the winter taking in the fresh air and sunshine.
Spring is relatively comfortable with temperatures ranging from 20-27 degrees Celsius in the daytime and between 16 and 20 at night. There is often some rain in the spring, but not as much as you will experience in the autumn.
There are many things to see in the spring if you are a lover of the outdoors. This is when the white almond blossoms are in bloom. They are the reason this area was named Costa Blanca, there were so many of them in bloom in spring, they turned the area a brilliant white.
Summer sees vacationers flooding to Costa Blanca. Many of them are taking advantage of the combination of warm weather and miles of beautiful beaches that are all along Costa Blanca.
Summers are dry, so generally the only time you are going to get wet is from the surf, not rain. It does get pretty hot, with temperatures near 32 degrees Celsius (90 Fahrenheit) on a regular basis.
This is the rainy season in Costa Blanca, as well as much of the rest of the Mediterranean. If you are in the area this time of year, you will likely experience many of the rain days the region receives. The wettest month, by far, is November.
The rain that blankets the region comes from two places. First, there is cold air moving in from the north that hits the warm air from the Mediterranean Sea and produces rainstorms. Secondly, the cross Atlantic airflow, which causes the formation of more storms, is stronger in the autumn months.
