Coldest night this winter to bring mercury down to -10ºC

LAST night (Tuesday) was officially the coldest night in Spain so far this winter – but the early hours of Thursday morning could be even chillier, says the State meteorological agency AEMET.

Temperatures today will plummet to -10ºC in the provinces of Segovia, Soria, Salamanca, Burgos, Palencia and Ávila (all in Castilla y León).

The mercury is expected to fall between now and tomorrow morning to around -8ºC or -9ºC in the remaining provinces of Castilla y León (León and Zamora), as well as northern and inland Catalunya, La Rioja and the mountains of the Greater Madrid region.

Many other provinces will suffer freezing temperatures in the next 24 hours, with figures of -4ºC to -6ºC forecast in Albacete, Cuenca, Toledo and Guadalajara (Castilla-La Mancha region), Madrid city, Navarra, Asturias, Cantabria, all of Aragón (the provinces of Teruel, Zaragoza and Huesca), all of the Basque Country, the Galicia provinces of Lugo and Ourense, and even in southern Spain in the provinces of Granada, Almería and Jaén (Andalucía).

Snow is expected across the northern strip and in Castilla y León, and tidal surges in coastal areas of Asturias, Cantabria, Galicia and the Balearic Island of Menorca.

A total of 35 provinces are under 'yellow' weather warnings for very cold weather, and snow will hit practically everywhere at an altitude of over 500 metres above sea-level, even on the southern and Mediterranean coasts.

This deep freeze marks the end of an unusually-mild winter in Spain – so mild, in fact, that pink flamingoes in the Mediterranean salt flats in Calpe (Alicante province) have not bothered to migrate.

They usually stop off in the coastal town of Calpe en route between the Camargue region of France and Algeria and have left by early autumn, but the unseasonal and near-springlike winter in Spain means they were still in the salt flats a week ago.
