Camino and Spain plan - seeking comment

My wife and I are travelling to the region next week. Plan is to stay 4 days in Paris, take the train to Bayonne, bus to San Sebastian where we will stay for 2 nights and then train to Ponferrada (about 7 hours) and bus to Do Cebreiro where we will begin the 6 day walk to Santiago. From Santiago we plan to fly to Madrid for return to Chicago. The segment from San Sebastian to Do Cebreiro sounds long but I don't know how to improve it. Any thoughts on the overall plan will be appreciated.

Question- what is the day/nighttime weather like on the Camino now? Not sure what to pack.
Thank you

Look it up on the weather channel or other weather websites.

I live not so far away from the Camino, and I can say for sure you will find it variable. Long term weather forecast...even a few days are not accurate. Plus the other influence is the mountains will be a lot different to the areas at a lower height. It is always advisable to pack for everything, except snow.

Today the forecast is a high of 34Centigrade

I hope you have looked into the threads here about the camino. There is a great luggage transport service so you needn' t carry more than a small pack of snacks and water if you don´t want to.

Could you fly to santiago and take the bus "backwards" to your starting point?
