This post summarizes the July weather in Madrid, with tips on what to wear, as well as things to do.

July in Madrid features hot afternoons and early evenings with warm to comfortable late nights and early mornings. 

As local tour guides, we know that July is one of the best times for walking tours, because there's usually a lot of great, sunny weather.

And I am not just a tour guide. I'm also a retired meteorologist who has found a new way to put my experiences to work.

How Hot is Madrid in July?

Daytime high temperatures will tend to be around 30-31 C (86-88 F) early in July, warming to 32-34 C (90-93 F) near the end of the month.

A few of the hotter afternoons, especially later in the month, can reach up to around 37 C (99 F).

The record high temperature in Madrid during July is 40.7 C (105.3 F).

Late night and early morning lows tend to be near 16-17 C ( 61-63 F) warming to 18-20 C (64-68 F) near the end of the month.

A few of the cooler mornings, especially early in the month, can dip down to around 12 C (54 F). 

The record low temperature in Madrid during July is 8.5 C (47.3 F).

How Much Rain Does Madrid Get in July?

You can expect about 25-26 days of mostly, or at least partly sunny skies this month with only about 4-5 days being mostly cloudy. 

Little rain falls this month with only about 2 days on average recording rainfall of at least 1 mm (0.04 inches). 


The number of daylight hours during July gradually falls from about 15 hours on the 1st to about 14.3 hours by the 31st.


Mostly light to gentle winds prevail this month at 6-19 kph (4-12 mph).

What to Wear in Madrid in July?

Best to dress for Summer with light and airy clothing.  You can bring sundresses, shorts, both long and short-sleeved tops as well as jeans. 

You may want to add a light sweater or windbreaker for the few cooler late nights and early mornings.

Don’t forget some comfortable walking shoes as well as some sneakers.

Things to do in Madrid in July

Since it's the middle of summer, the weather should be more than nice enough on most days to consider taking a pay-what-you-wish Madrid walking tour.

All of the major theme parks will also be open, so if you're traveling with kids, you might want to consider visiting either Parque Warner Madrid or Parque de Attraciones.

If you're looking to beat the heat, consider going to see a live Flamenco performance after the sun goes down.

There are also fun food tours and Tapas bar crawls you might want to consider if you're looking for the best places to grab a bite to eat.
