A couple of days ago my travel agent offered me a very nice cruise trip from Italy to Spain (Malaga, Cadiz, as well as Alicante and Barcelona on our way back) and Portugal (Lisbon) at a very favourable price. Now I wonder what the weather is like in November in those regions. I've heard that heavy rain is more than likely in that time of the year, although my travel agent speaks only of 'occasional showers'. Well, considering such a low price… :-/
Any information from my Spanish and Portuguese colleagues is more than welcome.icon_smile.gif

Hi Dubravka,

The weather in Spain can show important regional differences, however in the Eastern and Southern coast of Spain temperatures should be mild throughout the year (mind you, it might not be a very wise decision to pack only bikinis and shorts, but you aren't going to freeze). I'm not sure about the rain though. If you were to visit Northern Spain, you would most probably find rain, but I don't think that happens too often in Southern Spain.

Regards,
Eva

Will give you a idea ... Aug 8, 2007

... for Lisbon. The temperatures are a bit on the low side on these charts for summer, but the rainfall seems to be quite accurate.

But then again, these days, who knows?

Our December, for example, in Algarve in 2004 and 2006 was dry, in 2005 it didn't stop raining. There is normally some rain in November and when it starts, it can go on for a few days. Not the best time for a cruise.

Thanks Aug 8, 2007

Thanks to all of you. I've received a couple of e-mail messages from Portugal-based translators, who think that the weather might still be fine for a cruise in mid-November. I'm not afraid of slightly lower air temperatures so I think it's worth trying!icon_smile.gif
