Application to check the weather and forecasts of various Spanish cities with practical information on humidity, wind, rain and the risk of the condition of the sky.
Spain is characterized by three climatic types: continental, maritime and Mediterranean.
The continental climate covers the majority of peninsular Spain, influencing the Meseta Central, the adjoining mountains to the east and south, and the Ebro basin. A continental climate is characterized by wide seasonal variations in temperature and erratic rainfall with high rates of evaporation that leave the arid land. Annual precipitation is usually thirty to sixty-four centimeters. The region of Meseta receives about fifty centimeters. Meseta north, Sistema Central and the Ebro Basin have two rainy seasons, one in spring (April to June) and the other in autumn (October-November), late spring being the the wettest time of year.
In southern Meseta, also, rainy seasons are spring and autumn, but the first is in spring (March), and autumn is the wet season. Even during the rainy season, rains are irregular and unreliable. Continental winters are cold, with strong winds and high humidity, despite the low rainfall. Except for mountain areas, the northern part is the cold and frost is common. Summers are hot and cloudless, producing daytime temperatures reaching 21 C in the north of the Meseta and 24-27 C in the south of the Meseta. Night temperatures range from 7 to 10 C. The basin of the Ebro, at lower elevations, is extremely hot during the summer, and temperatures can exceed 43 C. In summer, the humidity is low in the Meseta Central and in the Ebro basin, with the exception of the right bank of the Rio Ebro where humidity is high.
A maritime climate prevails in the northern part of the country, the Pyrenees to the northwest region, which is characterized by relatively mild winters, warm but not hot summer, abundant rainfall spread out over the year. Temperatures vary little. The moderating effects of the sea, however, diminish in inland areas, where temperatures exceed 9-18 C than the coast. The situation of the Atlantic Ocean also affects precipitation, and there is less rain in the east than in the west. Autumn (October to December) is the rainy season, while July is the driest month. The prevailing high humidity and winds produce fog and drizzle along the northwest coast, but this phenomenon is less common at little distance inland, the mountains forming a barrier against moisture of the sea.
The Mediterranean climate region extends from the Andalusian plain along the southern coast and east to the Pyrenees. Cumulative rainfall in this region is lower than in the rest of Spain, and is concentrated towards the end of the autumn-winter. Generally, rainfall is low and often insufficient, irregular and unreliable. Temperatures in the Mediterranean region usually are higher in summer and winter, day temperatures and the changes are more limited than those of the mainland. The average temperature in January is 10 C in 13 to most of the Mediterranean region and is colder than 9 C in the coastal region of the north, near Barcelona. In winter, temperatures inland in the Andalusian Plain are slightly lower than the coast. Temperatures in July and August are on average 22-27 C on the coast and 29-31 C farther inland, with low humidity.
