Best time of year to visit Seattle, Washington, weather and other travel tips

Seattle has a reputation for being a rainy city. This applies to some parts of the year, but sometimes there will not be a drop of rain. Most of the rain falls during the winter months, so the months between May and November are the best time of year to visit Seattle. The summer months are very popular, which leads to a lot of tourists and higher hotel room rates. Fall is a brilliant time to visit Seattle as many of the tourists have left, room rates have dropped and the weather is pleasant. Spring is a nice time to visit, but you may still see some rain.

Summer in Spain, heat in Madrid

Summer in Madrid, heat in Madrid

In Madrid there is a saying that goes: "Nueve meses de invierno y tres de infierno."
Translate it like this: Nine months of winter and three months of hell.
Madrid is extremely hot in the summer and can get quite cold in the winter, so cold that you can even do winter sports without any problems. Accordingly, I find that this saying hits the nail on the head. Also, there is no real spring or fall in Madrid. It's either cold or hot. The change between cold and heat is always like someone flipping a switch, someone deciding to turn on the heat all at once. Overnight, without warning, just like that.
