Weather conditions for visiting Barcelona in October
What Spain is good for is the opportunity to comfortably relax in one of its cities at any time of the year. If it so happened that the vacation is scheduled for mid-autumn, and the desire to visit Barcelona has not decreased, we will please you – the weather in Barcelona in October is still not as autumnal as in central Russia. The text below presents the average statistical data on changes in air and sea temperatures throughout October.
If you already miss summer and want to feel its last touches, it is better to visit Barcelona in the first 10 days of October. As a rule, at this time the temperature here is set in the range of 20-27 degrees, i.e. ideal conditions for a comfortable stay are created: not hot and not cold. The sea also does not have time to cool below 23 degrees – of course, not fresh milk, but you can still swim. From about the 10th, the air temperature begins to decrease. This is especially noticeable at night, when it drops to 10-15 degrees.
Precipitation in the form of rain is possible for approximately 4-5 days in October. Therefore, we advise you to take an umbrella with you – just in case. But with all this, for more than half of the month the sky is clear, for 10 days it is slightly cloudy or cloudy. The weather in Barcelona in October is conducive not so much to a beach holiday as to familiarization with local attractions, of which there are an incredible number in this city.
How to be?
Do not despair, even in October you can have a good rest in Barcelona. Do you want to soak up the sun on one of the beaches, swim in the sea? Then better plan your vacation for the first half of the month. If the purpose of the trip is to wander around the city and enjoy the view of architectural monuments, then the whole month is at your disposal. But the weather in Barcelona in November, which we will talk about in the next article, will not allow you to choose! To give you a better idea of the October weather conditions in this city, we have compiled a summary table with a range of temperature values.
