    Barcelona has a Mediterranean climate[34] (Köppen climate classification: Csa),[35] with mild, humid winters and warm, dry summers. Barcelona is located on the eastern coast of the Iberian Peninsula, so Atlantic west winds often arrive in Barcelona with low humidity, producing no rain. The proximity of the Atlantic, its latitude, and the relief, are the reasons why the summers are not as dry as in most other Mediterranean Basin locations. Lows (not surface lows but high-atmospheric "cold invasions") can easily affect the area of Barcelona (and Catalonia), causing storms, particularly in August. Some years, the beginning of June is still cool and rainy, like April and May. Together with August, September, October and November these months are the wettest of the year. The driest are February, March, June and July. As in many parts of Catalonia, the annual weather pattern varies greatly from year to year.

    Its average annual temperature is 15.6 °C (60.1 °F): 20 °C (68 °F) during the day and 11 °C (52 °F) at night. Average annual temperature of sea is 17.8 °C (64.0 °F). In the coldest month – January, the typically temperature ranges from 7 to 15 °C (45 to 59 °F) during the day, -2 to 9 °C (28 to 48 °F) at night and the average sea temperature is 13 °C (55 °F).[36] In the warmest month – August, the typically temperature ranges from 25 to 31 °C (77 to 88 °F) during the day, about 20 °C (68 °F) at night and the average sea temperature is 25 °C (77 °F).[36] Generally – summer's season, lasts about 6 months, from May to October, with average temperature of these six months amounting 24.6 °C (76.3 °F) during the day and 15.8 °C (60.4 °F) at night. Two months – April and November – are transitional, sometimes there are temperatures above 20 °C (68 °F), with average temperature of these two months amounting 17.3 °C (63 °F) during the day and 8.3 °C (46.9 °F) at night. December, January, February and March is the coldest months, with average temperatures over 14.5 °C (58.1 °F) during the day and 5.5 °C (41.9 °F) at night. Large fluctuations in temperature are rare, particularly in summer months. Sunshine hours is 2,524 per year, from 138 (average 4.5 hours of sunshine / day) in December to 310 (average 10 hours of sunshine / day) in July. Average relative humidity is 72%, from 69% in July to 75% in October.[37]

    The highest temperature recorded in the city centre was 39.9 °C (103.8 °F) on 27 August 2010.[38] The coldest temperature recorded was −6.7 °C (19.9 °F) on 11 February 1956 and −5 °C (23 °F) on 12 January 1985. However, in the 19th century −9.6 °C (14.7 °F) was recorded in January 1896. At the Fabra Observatory, situated on the Tibidabo hill, 412 m (1,351.71 ft) above the sea level, the record summer temperature is 39.8 °C (104 °F) [39] on 7 July 1982, and the lowest temperature ever registered, −10 °C (14 °F) on 11 February 1956.
