We all know how unpredictable the weather can be on the Camino, especially on the Norte. So, I am seeking your experiences to the amount of rain fall in July and August on the Norte. I'm hoping I won't need rain pants and can get away with a lightweight poncho. Thoughts and stories welcome. Thanks :)

Looking at historical data, July and August should be pretty dry. However, I experienced a lot of rain this last July and August on the Norte. But I was never cold, so I would agree that bare legs and a poncho is the way to go.

I'm not familiar with the weather there but you could pack a heavy plastic trash bag and if you are caught in a heavy rain cut the short seam and wear the bag as a skirt.
Thanks but I might as well take a lightweight poncho LOL :)

The site has an English language option and is excellent for current and historic weather and climate data.

Just click on the "Bienvido" tab in the upper right of the screen and click on "welcome".
