heading to Barcelona on 21st November, no clue what to pack, will it be warm during the day? or would I need jeans? im very confused
well im not in Barcelona every day am I?
It's quite chilly today actually, with minimums of around 3-5c predicted throughout the week. The maximum is around 17-18c. It can go above 21c during November so I would pack both a thin and a thick jacket and a jumper or two. Summer, it is not, but last week, we were all wearing short-sleeved shirts for halloween, which is unusual.
Thank you for asking that Whatwaytothebeach as myself and 3 friends are going at the end of November and were wondering the same thing.
... ah, lasses... weather is nicer than in the north of Europe, but this ain't the Caribbean either so pack a warm jacket alongside a jumper or two. The weather in this city is rather "mild", which means that winters don't tend to be too cold. At this time of the year, a warm jacket might be needed when the sun sets. During the day, if it's sunny -which normally is- and there's no wind, temperatures are warm enough to just wear a jumper -or a light jacket- and at noon a few even dare to wear a t-shirt only.
Temperatures in Barcelona these past days: 8am 5-8ºC, 2pm 16-18ºC, 7pm 10-12ºC
Having said all that, we ALSO have the odd grey cold and humid day with winds coming down from the Pole, huh!... so don't jump to my throat if you catch one of those!
We were in Barcelona on the same weekend last year and quite frankly it was chilly. If I remember correctly it was one of those rare occasions (there are a few most years) when it was warmer in most of the British Isles. We were grateful that we'd decided to take jackets, I've also been in Barcelona on New Year's Day when shorts and t-shirts would have been fine during the day, although it got cool in the evening, unsurprisingly.
Anthony is talking about climate rather than weather and the best way to have a good idea of what the weather will be like (it's too early so say right now) is to look at a couple of weather forecasts a day or two before you fly and plan on that basis.
All I can say is that today it was 19c an warm in the sun but chilly in the shade I've worn shorts an t shirt with a light jacket .
The most accurate local weather forecast can be found at www.Meteo.cat the two day forecast is usually spot on.
Opt for 'onion dressing' a term credited to another regular on this forum: Gigi's_mum. Pack layers, then you can peel them off, as the day heats up!
