The Camino Primitivo in northern Spain has different weather conditions. It can switch from rainy to sunny days during your trip.

You'll probably see a lot of rain in areas over Asturias. Towns like Oviedo or Grado often have light rain which can become heavier. The temperatures here remain in a tolerable range, with the maximum at around 15-17°C and the minimum at 7-9°C. This does not change much as you move towards Salas or Tineo, just gets a bit warmer.

When you reach Galicia, via A Fonsagrada, the chance of rain is still there but you also get sunny and somewhat cloudy days. The temperatures are usually a bit higher here, around high teens, and can go down to 8 or 9°C, mainly in hillier areas.

Santiago de Compostela, the last stop, greets you with less rain. It's a mix of light rain, cloudy skies, and sun. The temperatures stay mild, going up to around 18°C and dropping to around 8°C.

So, in Camino Primitivo, be ready for a journey with rain and sun, no matter where you are. The temperatures stay comfortably cool.
