The Weather in January
Barcelona weather in January is somewhat unstable, and weather conditions are those typical of the Mediterranean winter time. It is chilly (for us) and gray for a few days. Expect some moderate winds and some rain, though it is mostly sunny with clear skies.
After the new year and Three Wise Men festivities (January 6th), the city is less populated by tourists and could be a perfect time for visiting the most important places of interest and Barcelona attractions.
