May 2013 was the coldest in 28 years, says met office
06 June 2013 @ 11:06

THIS May has been the coldest on record since 1985, with minimum temperatures falling to minus figures in the centre and north of the country.

The average temperature throughout the Spain – which sees a huge variation year-round from English-style weather in the north to near-subtropical in the Canary Islands – was 14.6ºC, or 1.3ºC lower than usual for the time of year.

According to the State meteorological agency AEMET, the only areas of the country which escaped the cold snap were the southern regions of Andalucía and Murcia, and the Canary Islands which were actually warmer than average.

But in Santander, in the northern Atlantic region of Asturias, this May has been the coldest since 1951.
