Barcelona Weather in April
What’s the weather like in Barcelona in April?
Barcelona weather in April is very mild and sunny, which is perfect if you’ve got a lot of sightseeing planned. The city isn’t as busy as you’d think, which makes April the best time to visit if you prefer a more laidback and relaxing atmosphere on holiday.
Its location on Spain’s northeast coast means Barcelona enjoys a warm, Mediterranean climate that begins to warm up in spring. Temperatures are higher and there are just a few short showers scattered over the month. Winds coming from the Atlantic are quite common and tend to bring temperatures down slightly. This is both good and bad, as you’ll appreciate the sea breeze during hot parts of the day but if it’s windy at night, you’ll need to take your jacket out with you to stay warm.
The average temperature in April is around 17°C, which often increases to 21°C on a good day. The sun shines for at least eight hours a day, giving you plenty of time to explore the city and visit the best attractions. The sea finally starts to heat up in April and is warm enough for a swim with an average high of 14°C. You can expect light to moderate rainfall with a 28mm spread over 10 days of the month. Mild humidity levels make the weather more enjoyable, with an average level of 54%.
