The weather station at Alicante is situated at 81m above sea level and being very close to the Mediterranean, the climate will benefit from a coolling effect in the summer and a warming effect in the winter.
To the north east of Alicante, towards Benidorm and Denia (Northern Costa Blanca), there are mountains rising to 1500m within 20Km of the coast. In these mountains, the altitude will cause a reduction in air temperatures (particularly when the sun is not shining) and the weather can be "localised".
To the south or south west of Alicante,towards Torrevieja (South Costa Blanca), the land is much flatter with mountains not being reached until a distance of about 40 Km from the coast. In this area, summer temperatures are likely to get higher as you move away from the coast.
The average rainfall for Alicante is 394mm or 15.5 inches (Source: World Climate), mostly falling from October to May with very little rainfall during July and August.
