What is the weather like in Extremadura?

La Vera has a microclimate with benign temperatures in winter and summer. This is due in great measure to the mountain range of Gredos that in winter shelters of the winds of the north and in summer it cools the strong insolation daytime with soft Breezes that flow from the mountain to the valley, weather effect known as the Valley Breezes. For a more accurate information you can also check the daily forecast in the link below.
