The climate of Bilbao (Spain)
Bilbao is located in the northwestern part of Spain in the Biscay province in the autonomous region Basque Country. The city is located on both the Atlantic Ocean and the Nervión River. In Bilbao one of the four establishments of the Guggenheim museum can be found. This beautiful museum alone is a reason to visit Bilbao. Works of Slavador Dali, René Magritte and Andy Warhol can be admired here. In the city the Museo de Bellas Artes de Bilbao can also be found. Here you can admire the works of Paul Gaugin. Bilbao has a moderate maritime climate with fairly mild summers by Spanish standards. The influence of the sea and a westerly wind cause the climate to be mild. However, over the past few years heat waves have been recorded during the summer. The capital of the Basque region can be visited all year round. The weather is pleasant almost all year round. Even during the winter temperatures are around 14 degrees Celsius (57.2 degrees Fahrenheit. Most precipitation can be recorded during spring and fall.

More climate information
Climate figures are very useful but don’t present a general impression of the climate and the eventual weather circumstances within a certain period. The figures don’t always reflect the chance of wintry weather, extreme heat or hurricanes. That is why we offer useful extra climate information for each month of the year:
