It is not at all uncommon for residents of The Rock to enjoy up to 90 days straight without rain during the summer months, when the sun shines approximately 10.5 hours daily. Summer lows might reach 13ºC, but most days the temperature will hover much nearer the area's 30ºC highs:

Like neighbouring southern Spain, as autumn progresses temperatures can be divine. Here are the averages:

  • September: 26ºC
  • October: 22º
  • November: 18ºC

Two winds embrace the rock, each bringing different meteorological phenomenon. The first comes from the east and brings with it a humidity factor that sometimes crowns the rock with a cloud of it's own. The second, usually coming from the west, brings clear, dry weather.

Gibraltar's meteorological services are sophisticated and able to provide good quality five day forecasts. Both professionals and tourists can obtain more information by ringing the Meteorological Office on 53415 or 53419. They do not want their number publicized.
