    Weather - now that’s a new one eh?!

    Another weather question… if you’ve walked the Francis in mid April through May, did you experience all kinds of weather? How cold did it get, how hot did it get how much rain fell?!!! Also, I’m interested in knowing your start date to see when the albergues opened the year that you went...

    Weather information for Spain and Portugal

    Since I am still not expecting to be on the Camino soon, I'm trying to do useful things with my time here on the forum. I would like to create the ultimate weather thread - to be linked to a FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) series. When people ask "what will the weather be like in month X"...

    Planning - Average Temperatures

    Here is a hyperlink to a Google Drive folder. It contains a series of html files (web pages) that I created that show the average temperatures for every stage on the Camino with a start date for each month. I used the stages detailed in I excerpted the weather charts from...

    Best Weather Guesses!

    Hi all, we are planning a fall 2021 or spring 2022 camino. I have a couple routes in mind — either the Vasco del Interior to the Frances to the Invierno or the Via de la Plata via Astorga. We have twice served as hospitaleros at Refugio Gaucelmo and want to walk through Rabanal so we can see...

    Help! Is May too hot?

    I have been excitedly gathering information from amazingly helpful Forum members on the Mozarabe from Almeria to Cordoba. We will be walking from about 3 May- 22 May. I am now concerned that it will be too hot. Has anybody walked this stretch at that time? Thanks

    Ingles weather in May - something resembling a real question

    This question is probably unworthy of this forum, but since it's unlikely to be my first such transgression, why not go for it? I have an eye on walking the Camino Ingles in May (my plan at the moment is to land in Ferrol, and sometime before or once I get there, decide to either walk to...

    Another boring weather question

    I plan to walk Zafra to Salamanca during the last two weeks of April. I have enough experience to understand weather is unpredictable. After reading blogs, I am still a little confused about what is likely. Weather averages show moderate highs in the 60 Fahrenheit’s. Am I likely to see temps...

    How Hot is Too Hot for You? (NOT a Poll)

    Just curious as it hits 43+ C (110 F in 'old money') this afternoon at our home in Sydney. :oops: I would not want to be walking a Camino in this heat. In fact I think it would be dangerous. I can't imagine how much water I would need to carry. :eek: We have bird baths all over the garden...

    Weather in June on the Camino Frances

    Hi, I've spent a lot of time planning my June 2020 Camino. Newbie here! As excited as I am, also getting frustrated and overwhelmed as there is just so much info there. And yet, i still don't have a good grip on the weather in June. I'll start walking June 1st and hoping to take no more than...

    Terrible Weather in Galicia

    There has been rain on each of the last 25 consecutive days in Santiago. November is on its way to becoming the wettest in years. YUCK!!

    LIVE from the Camino Snow/Rain info source

    We have found the app Windy (recommended by VNwalking in this thread, #43) so useful in the last few days that I put together a few photos for anybody who might have missed the original mention. You can save yourself hours of searching for weather info on the individual towns in front of you by...

    LIVE from the Camino Weather near Foncebadón

    We walked from El Ganso to Foncebadón yesterday and badly wanted to continue, but having looked carefully at the new snow and snow depth screens on Windy, the weather app @VNwalking recommended the other day, we knew we weren’t equipped for the 24 cm of snow and wind gusts over 100 kph they are...

    Flooding in Galicia

    There's a lot of very nasty weather about. 110km winds, snow from about 800m, flood warnings in all four of Galicia's provinces. The hot baths on the Miño at Ourense are closed because of high water, the Xallas has burst its banks, the Ulla and the Tambre look likely to. I chickened out after...

    Camino Ingles Weather. . . Yup, there sure is.

    Today I scanned through several major weather websites looking at the predicted 7 and 10 day forecasts for a couple of points along the Ingles. These sites vary in their overall predictions, but it is fun to see what overlaps there are. The first thing is that, as expected, rain will happen if...

    May 2020 Pyrenees Weather?

    Hello! I am planning to walk part of the Camino Francés in May 2020. I know it is hard to predict the weather on the top of the mountains, but here in Indiana, they are predicting a harsher winter with cooler temps and more snow. Any predictions for the winter for the Pyrenees? I have heard the...
