Mercury plunges to -7ºC inland and rain and wind to hit the coast

TEMPERATURES across Spain are set to plummet to a teeth-chattering -7ºC this week, with no respite from the cold expected until at least Friday, reports the State meteorological agency, AEMET.

Snow, ice and ground frost is predicted in most parts of the country more than an hour inland of the coast, and at altitudes of at least 300 metres above sea-level, particularly in the north of the country.

Rain is forecast for the Mediterranean coast of Spain's mainland and islands, especially along the east coast of the former but possibly also the Strait of Gibraltar and south-eastern provinces.

This could be heavy – over an inch of rain in 12 hours – and possibly combined with sleet or snow in the province of Castellón and the east of Castilla-La Mancha, such as the provinces of Albacete and Cuenca.

The Canary Islands will escape the worst of the cold snap, but heavy rain is due to set in by tomorrow (Wednesday) and is likely to continue until after the weekend.

Gale-force winds of up to 100 kilometres per hour are forecast to hit the islands of Menorca and Mallorca, the provinces of Zaragoza and Girona, which may also experience tidal waves – as will the Balearics and to a lesser extent, Barcelona and A Coruña in Galicia.

A total of 16 provinces are on amber warning for snow, with Almería on yellow alert.

Also on yellow alert for exceptionally cold night and early morning temperatures are Madrid, the region of Aragón, all of Catalunya except for Tarragona province, and the provinces of Granada, Albacete, Ciudad Real, Guadalajara and Toledo.
