Planning to walk primitivo on or about may 1, 2023. Just finished the Portuguese coastal route, and was able to do it in 10 days. Hoping for good weather, and not too busy (no bed rush).

I am planning to walk the Salvador and Primitivo in Mid-May, 2023. Any ideas about what I should expect of the weather?

I have the village to village guide and it reports to expect rain. I think the best info would be to check the 10 day forecast, starting 2 weeks ahead, and then pack accordingly. I packed a goretex rain jacket and never put it on!

Primitivo.
St James Way, England.
When I walked it in mid to late May this year it rained on three days out of fourteen, and it was prolonged and heavy on only one of those days. Apart from that I was blessed with the weather; bright, warm sunshine, a nice breeze and interesting fluffy white clouds. It was occasionally misty in the mornings, but it soon burned off.
It might be completely different next year of course...

Hi Bob
I am also planning to hike the Primitivo in late April-early May so will be interested in responses from Pilgrims who have walked at that time of year.

I am loving hearing that you will all be out and about in 2023. I am starting in Madrid in mid-May then onto the Salvador and Primitivo. I hope to meet a few of you out on the trail. Mel

The Spanish met service website can provide standard climate data for places where they collect weather information here. You will find monthly lists of the key climate variables such as the average number of rainy days, minimum and maximum temperatures, etc. As you get closer, they provide a seven-day forecast. You might find some weather prediction sites with slightly longer range forecasts, noting that these will necessarily be less reliable the further out the forecast is.
