Arctic winds force temperatures down to -10ºC inland and 1ºC on the Med
09 January 2019 @ 13:36

A MASS of Arctic air is set to bring night temperatures down to as low as -10ºC across the country between today (Wednesday) and Saturday at least, according to the State meteorological agency, AEMET.

Even on the Mediterranean and south coasts, traditionally the parts of the mainland with the mildest winter temperatures, the mercury is expected to plunge to 1ºC or even to freezing in the early hours.

Inland parts of the warmer east and south are bracing themselves for nights dropping to -4ºC, and many town halls are already setting up temporary shelters for the homeless.

North winds will firstly hit the Catalunya area and gradually spread to the rest of the mainland and Balearic Islands, initially bringing relatively high humidity with it, but which will transform into a much drier climate.

Night and early-morning frost and ice are expected in inland areas, especially in the north and centre of the country, with thermometers plummeting to -5ºC in the central plains and areas of high altitude – even falling into double figures below zero in isolated pockets.

Daytime temperatures are not expected to rise above 5ºC in the northern half of the mainland, and will peak only briefly at between 12ºC and 14ºC on the Mediterranean.
