The climate of Gibraltar
Gibraltar is located in the southern part of the Iberian peninsula directly on the Mediterranean Sea. Gibraltar has a Mediterranean climate with dry and warm summers and mild and wet winters. Subzero temperatures and snowfall are uncommon in Gibraltar. Gibraltar enjoys a fairly high amount of hours of sunshine. Precipitation figures are slightly higher here than in the Costa del Sol, which is more to the east. This is because Gibraltar is situated on the Strait of Gibraltar. This area gets more precipitation than the regions to the east.
 

 

Warm summers
Summers in Gibraltar are guaranteed to be sunny and warm. In July and August humidity figures may be high causing a muggy feel. However, this is only during these months. Temperatures mostly remain below 30 degrees Celsius. However, peaks in temperatures and heat waves are not uncommon. When there is hardly any wind coming from the sea it may be very warm.

Precipitation
From October till April fairly high amounts of precipitation can be expected.

More climate information
Climate tables are useful but they don’t give an overall picture of the climate and possible weather conditions during a period of time. How high the chances are of hot or cold weather or hurricanes can often not be found in these tables. This is why we offer extra climate information per month.
