The climate of Horta (Portugal)
Horta is a small town and a municipality on Faial Island, the Azores. The city was founded in the second half of the 15th century by Flemish colonists who settled here. The city is a popular stop-over for sailing yachts that go whale spotting or make a transatlantic voyage. The city has a place in the history of aviation because Albert Cushing Read and his crew landed here after the first transatlantic journey by plane. The parliament of the Azores has its seat in Horta.
Horta has a warm maritime climate with cool summers and mild winters. Because of the influence of the Atlantic Ocean extremes in weather are uncommon. Horta has a high precipitation figure, most precipitation falls during the winter. However, large amounts of precipitation during the summer can be expected as well.
