We stayed for one week in January in Funchal and the weather was mostly sunny and dry, temperatures about 20 C. But watch out: in other parts of the island the climate is quite different. In the mountains there is a lot of fog (sometimes reaching until the upper suburbs of Funchal) and rain. Also on the north coast there is a lot more rain and sometimes strong wind.

I agree with Oller. It can be changeable but on the whole is warm with the occasional hotish day. Take a jumper just in case!
