Weather in Medellin

Medellin’s proximity to the equator and higher elevation contribute to relatively stable temperatures throughout the year, effectively creating a perpetual “spring-like” climate. This idyllic weather is frequently cited by local expats as one of the primary reasons they decided to relocate and make Medellin their home.
Daily temperatures typically range from a minimum of about 16°C (63°F) to a maximum of 29°C (85°F). On sunny days, temperatures may rise a couple of degrees higher, while cloudy or rainy days tend to be a few degrees cooler. As you ascend the surrounding valley of Medellin, the weather becomes noticeably cooler, making a light jacket a practical choice.

Rain, Rain Go Away, come back another day.

Regarding rainfall, many people inquire about Medellin’s “rainy season.” This question is challenging to answer definitively, mainly due to the variable weather patterns influenced by the El Niño and La Niña phenomena. During La Niña years, Medellin may experience prolonged periods of heavy, torrential rains, while El Niño years bring intense, consistent sunshine with minimal precipitation.
Rainy Season is typically between March – April and October to November give or take a few weeks. The Rain Seasons can get pretty intense with flash flooding, and mudslides out side the city area. But nothing to be concerned about. During Rain Season its like clock work. It could be every day at around 4pm for a week and change to 6pm every day for a week. It’ll rain for about 30 minutes to 1 hour if that. Very rare it rains all day.
