From scorching summers to mild winters and everything in between, the weather in Seville, Spain can vary quite a bit throughout the year. The good news, though, is that it generally stays on the warm and sunny side, and can be relatively easy to predict depending on the season. 

As an inland city in mainland Spain’s southernmost region of Andalusia, Seville is one of the warmest destinations in continental Europe. If you’re visiting in summer, come prepared with light, breathable clothing, plenty of sunscreen, and a good reusable water bottle, all of which will help you withstand the heat. Throughout the rest of the year, the weather in Seville is quite pleasant, with balmy Mediterranean days and crisp (but not too chilly) evenings and nights.

Spring in Seville

Springtime in Seville is a lively, passionate dream come true. Thanks to famous local celebrations like Holy Week and the April Fair, spring is one of the most festive times of year to visit, and it also brings unbeatable weather to the table.

Temperatures are warm enough to head out in short sleeves from as early as mid-March, and remain warm and pleasant until late April. While things start to get quite hot in May, it’s still tolerable compared to the summer months. Humidity is relatively low throughout the entire springtime period.

As the days warm up in Seville, sunlight lingers for longer as well. Daylight lasts for an average of 11.8 hours in March and 14 hours in May.

While March and early April in Seville can be a bit windy and more prone to precipitation, it’s nothing that would ruin your trip. Springtime rain showers are generally quite quick and short, and it’s rare to experience an entire rainy day.

What to pack: Light layers are a great idea when visiting Seville in spring. Early mornings and late nights can sometimes be a bit on the chilly side, so a lightweight jacket is ideal if you plan on being out during these times. During most of the day, pants and a short-sleeved shirt will do just fine. If you want to blend in with the locals, keep in mind that most Spaniards won’t break out the sandals until May, so go for close-toed flats or sneakers for the better part of spring.

Average Temperatures by Month:

  • March: High: 72 degrees F; Low: 49 degrees F
  • April: High: 75 degrees F; Low: 52 degrees F
  • May: High: 83 degrees; Low: 58 degrees F

Summer in Seville

Seville’s infamously hot, dry summers are not for the faint of heart. Daytime temperatures regularly soar into the upper 90s Fahrenheit, and it’s not uncommon to see triple digits on the thermometer, either. Sunlight lingers for longer, with summer days lasting a good 13 to 14 hours in Seville.

While the high temperatures can be quite intense, the heat is very dry rather than humid. Rainfall is slim to none, with little more than a brief smattering of rain or a summer thunderstorm popping up once or twice throughout the entire season. 

If you plan on visiting Seville in the summer, learn to embrace the art of the siesta. (In fact, this is exactly what Spain’s famous midday rest period was originally for—avoiding the heat.) Head out sightseeing early in the day before the heat gets too unbearable. After lunch, take it easy for a few hours and rest up at your accommodation (or, if you can’t nap, at least take advantage of the hotel pool). As the sun starts to set, hit the streets once again for a sevillano-style aperitif and tapas crawl. 

And if worse comes to worst, there’s always the beach just a little over an hour away

What to pack: You’re going to want light, breathable clothes at this time of year. Tank tops, shorts, and sandals are all perfectly acceptable (just leave the flip-flops behind if you don’t want to look like a tourist—locals only ever wear them right by the beach or the pool). To keep yourself protected from the plentiful Spanish sunshine, bring a good pair of shades or two and plenty of sunblock. 

Average Temperatures by Month:

  • June: High: 91 degrees F; Low: 64 degrees F
  • July: High: 98 degrees F; Low: 68 degrees F
  • August: High: 97 degrees; Low: 68 degrees F

Fall in Seville

Like spring, Seville’s weather in the fall is pleasantly mild—warm and sunny during the day, with just a bit of crispness in the air come evening. 

September is still quite hot, with temperatures in the 80s Fahrenheit, but the heat overall feels less intense than the summer months. October and November see averages dip into the 70s and 60s. Daylight hours also decrease following the fall equinox, falling to about 10 to 11 hours of sunlight per day.

The likelihood of precipitation also increases come autumn in Seville. October is the rainiest month, and sees a total average rainfall of 1.21 inches. That said, rain is still not a major concern at this time of year. 

What to pack: You can still get away with short sleeves throughout much of September, but go for layers once October and November roll around. A simple light jacket is good to have on hand. As far as footwear goes, think lightweight flats earlier in the season and stylish, comfortable ankle boots as temperatures drop.

Average Temperatures by Month:

  • September: High: 89 degrees F; 64 degrees F
  • October: High: 79 degrees F; Low: 58 degrees F
  • November: High: 69 degrees F; Low: 50 degrees F

Winter in Seville

If you’re not a fan of cold weather but are still dreaming of a European getaway during the winter months, Seville is the perfect place for you. Crisp, sunny days and relatively mild temperatures make it one of the continent’s most pleasant winter destinations.

Winter temperatures in Seville average out in the low 60s Fahrenheit during the day. While days are quite short, lasting about nine to 10 hours, sunlight is still relatively abundant. It’s also worth noting that winter is the most humid time of year in Seville. Snow is extremely rare, with the city’s most recent snowfall—a light dusting of snow that didn’t stick—occurring in 2010.

What to pack: You’ll want to bring a good winter coat, along with a scarf and a pair of gloves. While Seville’s winter temperatures are definitely on the mild side, the humidity can occasionally make it feel chillier than it actually is.
