The location of the archipelago in the North Atlantic brings in constant contact with both high pressure areas common to the North Atlantic and in constant movement polar and tropical masses of air.

As the European continent is more than 1500 km away, ocean conditions are the controlling factors of the regional climate. Consequently, the Azores has a maritime temperate climate characterized by pleasant temperatures with little average annual variation.

A high level of humidity (77% average / year.), And precipitation that is regular and well distributed throughout the year, although with greater abundance during the winter months, are the dominant climatic patterns in the region

Cloud cover is common throughout the year. The average annual air temperature is approximately 17 ° C (63 ° F), varying between 13 ° and 14 ° C (55 ° – 57 ° F) during the cooler months (January / February) and 22 ° – 23 ° C (72 º -73 º F) during the warmer months (July / August). Ocean temperatures oscillate between 14 ° and 15 ° C (57 ° and 59 ° F) during the coldest month (February) and between 22 ° and 23 ° C (72 ° and 73 ° C) in August in large partly due to the effects of the warming of the Gulf Stream, which passes through this area.
