Costa Brava is the northernmost part of the Mediterranean coast of Spain, near the border with France. The proximity to the area of France where Atlantic depressions enter the Mediterranean Sea, makes it more rainy than other areas of the Spanish east coast: in an average year, more than 700 millimeters (27.5 inches) of rain fall.

Winter, from December to February, is mild, with sunny days alternating with rainy periods. The average temperature in January is 8 °C (46.5 °F), so the winter is not as mild as in southern Spain. Sometimes there can be cold periods, when cold air from eastern Europe arrives here, and occasionally it may even snow.

Spring, from March to May, is mild and quite sunny, sometimes a bit cold and rainy in March and April, while in May the temperature becomes higher, and at the same time some thunderstorms begin to erupt in the afternoon. Atlantic fronts pass more often in March and April, but sometimes also in May.

Summer, from June to August, is hot and sunny, with the breeze from the sea that tempers the heat. Sometimes, thunderstorms can develop in the interior, and then reach the coast. We cannot exclude that some Atlantic disturbances, able to bring some rain, can affect this area also in this season, more likely in June and in the second half of August.

Autumn, from September to November, is pleasantly warm at the beginning, and then becomes gradually cooler. This is the wettest season of the year; October is usually the rainiest month.
