What's the temperature like in Madrid during April?
The temperature reaches around 18℃ during the daytime in April, falling away to 7℃ at night. The UV index will be moderate at this time of year, so not something to worry about for the average person. However, if you're going to be outside for long periods it's worth wearing a broad spectrum SPF 30+ sunscreen and UV-blocking sunglasses. Remember that bright surfaces, such as water and sand increase UV exposure.

April is typically the wettest month in Madrid. On average, there will be 12 rainy days during the month, amounting to 40.9mm in total. That's broadly comparable with the amount of rain we see in England during the summer months, and would be considered dry. There's a small chance that you'll catch a thunderstorm during your trip.
