These things you will need all year:

Sun glasses for sitting out on terazas.
Beach wear - If you go on an excursion to the beach.
Sun tan lotion for sitting in the sun.
Comfortable walking shoes.
High heels are no good in Granada.

Note: Granada is 670 metres high so temperatures are lower at night
It has a dry climate so 30C is very pleasant.
(30C in London is horrendous, the comfortableness of temperature depends a lot on the humidity)

Here are some ideas according to months.

January:
Can get to just below freezing at night.
Many sunny days with blue skies and 22C at midday.
Warm clothes.
Heavy jersey and coat.
