What’s the weather like on the Costa Brava in January?
Sitting along the northern shores of Spain’s east coast, the Costa Brava is a beach region that stretches from north of Barcelona towards the French border. The Costa Brava has a Mediterranean climate which brings hot, sunny summers and mild winters to the area. Although January is one of the coldest months of the year, temperatures can still be quite pleasant and there are five hours of daily sunshine. It’s likely you’ll have the odd shower if you visit the Costa Brava at this time, but you’ll also get plenty of nice weather.
The average temperature on the Costa Brava is 8ºC in January, reaching highs of 14ºC in the warmest part of the afternoon. After sunset, temperatures fall to a low of 2ºC, so make sure you bring a winter jacket and plenty of warm clothes for evenings out. Around 55mm of rain’s predicted during January, spread over eight wet days. Although showers are common, they’re usually light and short-lived. You’ll need to be brave to take a dip in the Mediterranean Sea at this time, which measures a cool 14ºC.
