Granada's climate is friendly and dry, the air clean and healthy, with clear and cheerful skies. Strong winds, fog and snow are rare.

In January there are lots of blue skies and it is warm when the sun is shining but it gets cold at night. There are occasional frosts.

The best time to visit Granada is in the Spring and Autumn when the temperature is just perfect with warm sunny days. During July and August it can be very hot and some days the temperature reaches 104F.

Granada has a dry heat, which is much more bearable than the humid heat that you will find in Barcelona. There is very little rainfall, although every few years there are spells when it rains very heavily.
