Weather in Seville
Of course I can't tell you what the weather will
be when you get to Sevilla, but I can tell you what
it generally is during the month you'll be here. For
the weather today you can check out the current conditions
to the left, or click on the link for a 10 day forecast.
For weather predictions in Spanish, I've also found
the Instituto Nacional
de Meteorología to be a good source. Once
on the page click on the Predicción a 7 días
and drill down to the province and town you want.
Weather to expect in Seville
El tiempo por estaciones
The one thing you likely know, or should know, is that it
gets really, really hot in the summer. I mean it's damn
hot in the summer in Sevilla, especially in August. Sevilla
holds the record for the hottest city in Europe with a record
of 50° C (122° F). That was back in 1888, but I do
believe they tied or broke that in August of 2003, when the
temperature in the street rose to 52° C, or 126° F!
On those days the streets were literally empty during the
middle of the day. If you wanted to go out you did so before
10am and then not until maybe 11pm at night. Friends of mine
with little food in the house preferred to stay inside and
be hungry rather than brave the heat.
In the winter the temperature will almost never break the
freezing mark and so things are relatively mild. There are
many houses which do not have heat and as marble floors are
common it can be much colder inside. So it's not likely you'll
need that heavy winter coat, but layers do help and slippers
are a must.
Rain is uncommon if non-existent in the summer months of July
and August. In 2003 we went almost 4 months without any significant
rainfall. In October the rainy season begins and lasts through
December. In March it picks up a little and then starts a
downward trend. And while I know it differs from my chart
below, I swear October is often the poorest month for rain
in Sevilla. If your looking for snow head to the Sierra Nevadas
outside of Granada, as the last time it snowed in Sevilla
is at least 50 years ago. I saw a picture from that year somewhere
with snow in the Plaza de la Encarnación.
Average monthly temperatures and rainfall
Below is the average monthly temperature and rainfall so you
can get an idea of what to expect when you will be in Sevilla.
There are occasional freak weather spells - a day in December
where it's warm or a cold spell in the spring are always possible.
