AFTER A BEAUTIFUL start to February with temperatures that reached 25°c just yesterday, we´re all hoping that February´s weather will continue to follow this unexpected trend. But what´s the weather generally like in La Zenia at this time of year?
It´s a question we´re often asked, so we´ve compiled the latest data from the leading online weather websites to bring you an overview of what you can expect if you´re living in La Zenia, or planning a visit to our part of Spain in February.
Typically, February is the driest winter month on the Orihuela Costa – only the summer months of June, July and August trump February when it comes to avoiding the need to reach for an umbrella, with an average of just 2 days experiencing some rain.
There´s more good news when it comes to sunshine too, with an average median of 7 hours of warm sunny weather per day. And don´t forget, an average daytime air temperature of 17°c can seem positively tropical, as direct sunlight can add an additional 9°c on top making the “real feel” exceed a very pleasant 25°c.
You will need a jacket or a light coat if you want to experience the best that the local bars, bistros and restaurants can offer by night, but daytime walks along some of the Orihuela Costa´s finest beaches should definitely be on your to-do-list for the month.
Even at the beginning of February, the sun rises around 8:00 am and it does not set until around 6:30 pm (CET), meaning that the average Spanish day is a good hour longer than at more distant northern latitudes.
