Aemet issues weather warnings for widespread snow and frost


Spain’s state meteorological agency Aemet has issued snow and frost weather warnings to eleven regions across Spain

Apart from the snow and frost warnings, the weather agency is forecasting a drop in temperatures down to -10C in some areas. In general, skies will remain partly cloudy or clear, although it’s possible that there will be sporadic, weak rain along the coast and in the highlands. There is a strong likelihood of frosts occurring inland, and the snow level will drop in altitude to between 500 and 700 meters.

The minimum temperature in some cities in the region’s provincial capitals will be close to zero degrees. Granada will record a negative Celsius, Córdoba, zero, and Jaén one.

In Cadiz and Malaga, the minimum temperatures will be at most, 7 degrees. However, there will be several locations in the countryside where the minimum temperature will be below zero. Towns like Antequera (-1) and Archidona in the province of Malaga will register below-minimum values, and Ronda will approach 1 degree. On Monday, January 23, nearly the entire country of Spain will have widespread frosts, snowfall in the eastern Cantabrian and northern Iberian systems, and other typical winter weather conditions.

Severe weather alerts have been activated for cold, wind, snow, or strong seas in eleven regions. Lleida and Huesca will be on amber alert for temperatures near -10oC, while Vila, León, Palencia, Salamanca, Segovia, Soria, Zamora, Albacete, Cuenca, Guadalajara, Barcelona, Gerona, Tarragona, Madrid, Mallorca, Ibiza, and Formentera are on yellow alert for temperatures between -4 and -8 C.

January weather in Spain varies depending on the specific location, but generally, it is cool and damp with temperatures ranging from the low 40s to mid-50s Fahrenheit (about 5-15 degrees Celsius) during the day, and dropping to the low 30s to mid-40s Fahrenheit (about 0-10 degrees Celsius) at night. Rain and occasional snowfall are common in many areas, especially in the northern regions. The southern regions of Spain tend to be milder and drier.
