Where does this data come from
Weather data for Madrid was collected from the MERRA-2 project from NASA, which used a climate model combined with historical data from weather stations around the world to estimate what the conditions were like for every point on the Earth.
For all data based on historical data, we’ve averaged the data from the past 11 years (2010-2020). For example, for the hourly temperature at 10am, we’ve looked at the temperature at 10am on every day in September (e.g., September 1, September 2, etc. in 2010, 2011, etc.) and took the arithmetic mean. We did not smooth the data, so for example, our daily temperature line will have some randomness due to the fact that weather is random in the first place.

We base the humidity comfort level on the dew point, as it determines whether perspiration will evaporate from the skin, thereby cooling the body. Lower dew points feel drier and higher dew points feel more humid. Unlike temperature, which typically varies significantly between night and day, dew point tends to change more slowly, so while the temperature may drop at night, a muggy day is typically followed by a muggy night.
The chance that a given day will be muggy in Madrid is essentially constant during September, remaining around 0% throughout.
For reference, on July 25, the muggiest day of the year, there are muggy conditions 0% of the time, while on January 1, the least muggy day of the year, there are muggy conditions 0% of the time.

This section discusses the wide-area hourly average wind vector (speed and direction) at 10 meters above the ground. The wind experienced at any given location is highly dependent on local topography and other factors, and instantaneous wind speed and direction vary more widely than hourly averages.

For reference, on April 5, the windiest day of the year, the daily average wind speed is 8.7 miles per hour, while on September 16, the calmest day of the year, the daily average wind speed is 7.1 miles per hour.
The lowest daily average wind speed during September is 7.1 miles per hour on September 16.

Temperature and Dew Point
There are 3 weather stations near enough to contribute to our estimation of the temperature and dew point in Madrid.
For each station, the records are corrected for the elevation difference between that station and Madrid according to the International Standard Atmosphere , and by the relative change present in the MERRA-2 satellite-era reanalysis between the two locations.
The estimated value at Madrid is computed as the weighted average of the individual contributions from each station, with weights proportional to the inverse of the distance between Madrid and a given station.
The stations contributing to this reconstruction are:
- Adolfo Suárez Madrid–Barajas Airport (LEMD, 95%, 9 mi, northeast, -184 ft elevation change)
- Salamanca Airport (LESA, 2. 7%, 101 mi, west, 413 ft elevation change)
- Valladolid Airport (LEVD, 2.5%, 107 mi, northwest, 591 ft elevation change)

To get a sense of how much these sources agree with each other, you can view a comparison of Madrid and the stations that contribute to our estimates of its temperature history and climate. Please note that each source’s contribution is adjusted for elevation and the relative change present in the MERRA-2 data.
All data relating to the Sun’s position (e.g., sunrise and sunset) are computed using astronomical formulas from the book, Astronomical Algorithms 2nd Edition , by Jean Meeus.
All other weather data, including cloud cover, precipitation, wind speed and direction, and solar flux, come from NASA’s MERRA-2 Modern-Era Retrospective Analysis . This reanalysis combines a variety of wide-area measurements in a state-of-the-art global meteorological model to reconstruct the hourly history of weather throughout the world on a 50-kilometer grid.

rest and weather in Madrid (Spain)
Many tourists consider the velvet season an ideal period for relaxation, and therefore plan their vacation for the beginning of autumn. Indeed, this time of year has a lot of advantages, the main of which is, of course, the weather: the exhausting summer heat is already in the past, but the sun is not in a hurry to hide behind the clouds and continues to give its gentle warmth to vacationers.
If you have long dreamed of going to Spain, wandering through the narrow winding streets, imbued with the atmosphere of its cities, then it’s time to do it at the beginning of autumn.
We recommend starting your acquaintance with Spain from its main city – Madrid.
Kidpassage will tell you in detail about all the nuances of visiting the capital in the first month of autumn.
Holidays in Madrid in September: advantages and disadvantages of the resort
Several million tourists come to the Spanish capital every year, and the city is open to visitors throughout the year.
The mere fact of such active attendance suggests that you will definitely not be bored here.
Reviews of a holiday in Madrid in September are mostly positive, but there are still a few drawbacks.
So, what are the advantages of visiting the city during the velvet season tourists most often name?
- Weather conditions. In summer, the city suffers from heat, but with the onset of autumn, the thermometer begins to drop. The air temperature is perfect for walking with children.
- Corrida season. In October, the bullfighting season comes to an end. In September, tourists still have a chance to visit the Las Ventas arena and see the legendary spectacle with their own eyes.
- Fashion Week. In September, the city hosts a popular fashion industry event – Pasrela Cibeles Madrid Fashion Week.
- Great time to visit city parks. Of course, this can be done at any time of the year, but it is in autumn that the weather is fine, suitable for long walks along the park alleys. In summer it is too hot, in winter it is cloudy and cold. And to see the parks of Madrid is a must for every tourist.
But what are the disadvantages of Madrid in September:
- Lots of people. Autumn in the Spanish capital is considered the high tourist season, so the city streets are quite crowded. In addition, students come here in September.
- Changeable weather. At this time, the weather becomes a little capricious, the sun is increasingly covered by autumn clouds.
- Very high average cost of a hotel room.
Weather in Madrid in September
Comfortably mild weather in Madrid in September-October attracts many tourists to the city. During this period, the city streets are a real pandemonium. During the day it is still comfortable in light summer clothes, but at night it gets a little cooler and you need to wear a windbreaker for a walk.
The weather at the beginning of September is still a bit like summer, but without such exhausting heat. In the first decade of the month, precipitation is unlikely, the sky is clear and cloudless.
Temperatures in Madrid in mid-September are comfortable for extended outdoor activities.
Madrid proves from year to year that it is not for nothing that it is called the sunniest city in Europe.
Vacationers will need not only glasses, but also sunscreen, because the effects of ultraviolet radiation can still damage your skin.
