The weather forecast for the Costa del Sol and other parts of Spain reveals a drop in temperature with occasional showers
January 2023 has already started with the first month of the year expected to be slightly warmer in the Costa del Sol than in some other areas. The first week of the year has begun with the passage of a cold front. This is going to leave rainfall centered around the communities of the west of the peninsula.
In fact, Galicia in Northern Spain has already recorded heavy showers. Those same rains have spread to other western areas such as Asturias, Castilla y León, Extremadura, and western Andalucia.
Precipitation, although more isolated, is expected in other areas of the north and center. And, even, in an isolated way in the east of the peninsula and the Canary Islands, although only for the next few days.
By Wednesday, January 4, a robust anticyclone will make its presence felt. This will stabilise the weather across a good number of communities. Already on Wednesday, not only will clearer skies be seen, but more frequent frosts will start to emerge.
The weather on the Costa del Sol in January is typically mild and wet, with temperatures ranging from the mid-50s to the low 60s Fahrenheit (around 13-17 degrees Celsius). The region can experience some rain during this time of year, but it is still a popular destination for tourists who are looking to escape the colder weather in other parts of Europe. It’s a good idea to bring some warm and waterproof clothing if you plan on visiting the Costa del Sol in January.
