The climate

Walk of la Media Luna

Pamplona"s climate reflects a transition from a Mediterranean to an Atlantic climate. It is temperate-cold, full of contrast and varies from year to year. In general, it is pleasant, although the thermometer can rise above 35 degrees centigrade in July and August, and fall beneath 0 in January.


The average temperature in the city over the whole year is 12.4 degrees centigrade. The change from winter to spring and from summer to autumn is sudden rather than gradual.

The average maximum temperature in August, the hottest month, is 27.1 degrees centigrade, while the average low in January, the coldest month, is 1.1.


Total precipitation in the year is 772.5 litres per square metre. It rains for a total of 132 days in the year, mainly in the winter. December is the wettest month and July and August are the driest.

Between March and November, there is an average of 39 days of frost, concentrated in December, January and February.

Clouds and wind

The sky in Pamplona tends to be very cloudy, with an average of 300 cloud-covered days a year. July and August have the greatest number of clear days, eight apiece, while the average in December reaches just 2. The number of hours of sunlight stands between 1,800 and 2,000 a year.

The “cierzo” (north wind) and the “bochorno” (south wind) are the winds typical to the area. Although just breezy and still days predominate, the wind can on occasions be quite gusty.
