The weather in Murcia is consistently warm and mild, and is said by some
to be the best weather in Spain. Summer temperatures go to 40 degrees
Celsius, perfect for swimmers and sun lovers, but the weather is great
during all of the other seasons as well. In winter, you can expect the
temperature to hover about 10 degrees Celsius.

Because of its warm weather and unique location on the Segura River, this
region is a veritable greenhouse for fruits and vegetables. The river
flows through agricultural section, irrigating farms that produce
wonderful fruits, vegetable, and flowers. The grapes and olives from the
area produce great wines and olive oils. Be sure to partake of the fresh
fruit and vegetables when you visit.
There is little rainfall in summer in this area of the Alicante, only .7
inches in June to .22 inches in August. This leaves the summer days hot
and sunny for swimming and sunbathing.
Spring is a lovely time to spend here; if you prefer not to have the
heat, and you want to avoid crowds, you couldn't pick a better time. The
temperature is mild, but not hot, about 21 to 26 degrees Celsius in the
day and falling to 8 to 13 degrees in the evening. And there is still
little rain, even though spring is the rainy season in so many other
places. During the spring, the average monthly rainfall is between .5
inches and .65 inches.

Autumn is an ideal time to vacation in Murcia, since the temperatures in
early fall are still almost as warm as the summer temperatures, but the
crowds are gone, so you can enjoy all the beaches more easily. Even when
the temperature starts to come down in later fall, it is still pleasant,
between 20 and 30 degrees Celsius. Average monthly rainfall is still low,
between .8 and .69 inches per month. Many people prefer to take a golf
vacation in this area in the fall when the weather is still warm, but the
sun is not beating down on them as much as during the summer months.
A lot of people from northern Europe like to escape to the Alicante
region and Murcia in particular since the temperatures, though cooler
than summer are practically balmy to them in comparison to home! Some
retirees stay all winter, and some people just take a short getaway to
get a break from the cold. The cooler temperatures, ranging from 17 to 18
degrees Celsius in the day and 5 to 7 degrees in the night, are still
accompanied by sunny skies, since the rainfall is still sparse. This is
the perfect time, many people feel, for a golf vacation, or to visit
sites without the crowds and heat.
