Intro

What’s the weather like in Madeira in May?

Sitting in the North Atlantic Ocean off Africa’s northwest coast, Madeira has a subtropical climate with warm weather all year round. You’ll find that temperatures are rising in May as summer gets closer, while the amount of rain is dropping after the cooler and wetter winter. The Gulf Stream’s waters will keep you nice and warm, although the cool Canary Current can do the opposite. You’ll be warmest and driest in the south and west due to north easterly winds, however, everywhere gets hot when the Sahara Desert sends warm winds over to Madeira.

Averages

The average high in Madeira is 21ºC in May, which is perfectly warm enough for you to spend the day at the beach. You should bring some warmer clothes for the evenings though as it can get quite cool at night. The sea temperature is 19ºC, while humidity’s low. There’s 30mm of rain over six days, and you can expect 14 hours of daylight with seven hours of sunshine each day. Make sure you use plenty of sun cream as UV levels will be very high. The sun goes down at around 9pm.
