The climate in GibraltarAverage daytime and nighttime temperatures
All climatic diagrams of this site are taken from the collected data from the official weather station of Gibraltar at an altitude of 5m above sea level. All data correspond to the average monthly values of the last 20 years.
Back to overview: Gibraltar
Climate zone: Subtropics of the northern hemisphere
A beach holiday can also be enjoyed in the warmer season, but water temperatures will not reach much more than 21 °C.

Long-term development of temperatures from 1977 - 2019In contrast to single record values, a long-term development cannot simply be brought about by all weather stations in the country. Both the number and the locations are constantly changing. A simply calculated average value would give a falsified result. If several measuring stations in particularly cold mountain or coastal regions are added in one year, the average would already decrease as a result of this alone. If a station fails during the summer or winter months, it does not provide any values and falsifies the average again. The subsequent long-term development was therefore reduced to only 1 measuring points in order to have actually comparable data over as long a period as possible.
In the years 1977 to 2019 there were only these 1 weather stations in the whole country, which reported continuous temperature values (Gibraltar). From these weather reports we have created a long-term development that shows the monthly average temperatures. The hottest month in this entire period was 1989 with 26.1 °C. 2009 was the coldest month with an average temperature of 12.2 °C.
The average annual temperature was about 18.3 °C in the years after 1977 and about 18.9 °C in the last years before 2019. It has therefore increased only slightly by about 0.7 °C over the past 43 years. This trend only applies to the selected 1 weather stations in Gibraltar. A considerably more comprehensive evaluation of the global warming has been provided separately.
