Lisbon Weather and Climate



By force of its geographical location, Lisbon is one of the warmest European capitals, benefiting from a Mediterranean climate with notable subtropical characteristics. Its neighboring on the Atlantic Ocean, as well as the influences of the Tejo River, contribute to Lisbon’s advantage of enjoying the warmest winters of all capital cities of Europe. Indeed, air temperatures tend to stabilize around 15 degrees Celsius in winter (daytime), without dropping below some 8 degrees Celsius at night. Thus, frost and snowfalls are virtually unheard of in Lisbon, but the amount of rainfall is quite notable during the cold season.

On the other hand, summers are fairly hot and dry, with temperatures skyrocketing over 30 degrees Celsius. However, the sea breeze tends to mitigate the scorching heat, especially in the evening or at night. Springs and autumns remain the mildest of all seasons in Lisbon, with average temperatures stabilizing around 20 degrees Celsius.

In consequence, Lisbon can be deemed an all-season destination, though the differences between the tourist pursuits one can indulge in during the summer season and the winter season (just to cite the extremes) are quite considerable.
