Spain is expecting an abrupt change in weather this week, according to the state meteorological agency AEMET. An Atlantic storm that arrived on Wednesday, January 3, brought cloudy skies and a cold front to most of Spain. While rainfall is expected to be minor, winds will pick up across southern regions like Spain’s Andalucía.
AEMET predicts the storm will reach Huelva, Seville and Córdoba provinces by Wednesday afternoon. A second weather front is likely to follow on Thursday, potentially dropping rain in those same areas after nightfall.
Friday will be cold and blustery across the region of Andalucía, with top temperatures around 15°C and lows of 7°C. Scattered showers are possible in mountainous areas of Jaén, Granada and Cádiz, and snow could coat higher peaks like the Sierra Nevada– which is good news for skiers!
The cold snap will continue into the weekend, when skies are forecast to clear but thermometers could dip to 12-13°C maximum and 3°C minimum on Saturday. Conditions will remain bright and brisk for the rest of the weekend before stabilizing on Sunday.
