Weather in Winter

The winter climate is very mild in this region. The temperatures are much more comfortable than in other areas of Europe. The average temperatures in the winter range from 8 degrees Celsius (45 Fahrenheit) and temperatures in the lower 60s are not uncommon. It is still comfortable enough to spend time outside throughout the winter. In some warmer areas, people can still be found using the beaches.

The beautiful climate in the winter has been attracting an increasing number of retired people to the area. People from Scandinavia, the UK, Germany, Switzerland and Austria have been relocating to the Costa Blanca. Some only spend the winter in the area because it is so much warmer than in their home countries.

Weather in Spring

The weather in the spring can be rainy at times. There isn't as much rain as in autumn, but it isn't as dry as the summer or winter. The temperatures in the spring ranges from 20 to 27 degrees Celsius during the daytime. Night temperatures are between 16 and 20.

In the Springtime, the almond blossoms are in bloom. The white almond blossoms are what give this region the name, Costa Blanca, or the white coast. Many people believe the name comes from the beaches, but that isn't true. The name came from the abundant almond blossoms, which are beautiful in Spring.

Weather in Autumn

The Costa Blanca and most areas along the Mediterranean coast experience more rain in the autumn than in other seasons. In this area, November is the wettest month of the year.

There are two sources of autumn rainfall in this region. The first is cold air from the north, which reaches the higher temperatures of the Mediterranean Sea. This increases convection, leading to heavy rainfall. Flooding is possible with these rains. The second is the cross Atlantic airflow, which gets stronger in autumn. This causes more active weather fronts.
