Azores Climatic Averages
The Azores has a particular climate. It never gets too hot, neither too cold. The days are slightly unpredictable, however, with sunny mornings transforming into cloudy afternoons. The weather here is influenced by what is known as the “Azores High”. This is an anticyclone region with high pressure, located slightly to the North or slightly to the South of the Azores. Generally the weather here is softer than in mainland Portugal or western Europe.
There is a clear difference between the summer and the rest of the year. Temperatures don’t seem to rise above 20ºC form November through to May and then shoot right up to reach an average maximum of 26ºC in August.
The minimum temperatures are very mild also, with the lowest average being in February, generally not reaching below 10ºC.
With this mild climate, the islands maintain their naturally lush green flora all year round.
