Monthly Archives: February 2018
You must be joking? NO. Spain does get some snow especially in the high grounds and although not often in the Costas as well.
Take today for example February 4th 2018, It was minus 1 in Madrid at 12 noon and snowing, and the Alicante region had snow yesterday.
Granted it is not often but it does snow now and again. Today it reached 17 on the Costa Blanca but tonight snow is expected in some areas.
I do not think the Costas has one snow plough between them. Last year it snowed here in Ciudad Quesada for about an hour and our neighbors daughter (3 years old Spanish ) built a snowman. It was only 5 inches tall but it was the first snowman she had ever seen and built, she was ecstatic.
During the week we had daytime temperatures of 23 and nighttime of just 4. That is a big drop and with the houses not built for the cold , it feels freezing.
As I said it only happens now and then it does not stop you from sitting in the sun during the day.
Anyway about mid march it starts getting warmer and by July it can reach 40 degrees. But we still have about 5 weeks of cold nights to go, then the warm weather comes and the beaches start to fill up.
