Another sunny weekend: Unseasonably-high temperatures continue
28 February 2019 @ 12:52

AN ANTI-CYCLONE described by weather bosses as ‘eternal’ continues in Spain with a second weekend of unusually-high temperatures forecast, even in areas that are traditionally uncomfortably freezing at this time of year.

Zaragoza, in central Aragón – a region where the thermometer barely reaches double figures in the daytime in late February and early March – the mercury could soar to up to 26ºC, says the State meteorological agency, AEMET.

In the provinces of Valencia, in the east, Lleida in the land-locked north-east and bordering the Pyrénées, and Vizcaya – the capital of which is Bilbao – in the Basque Country, temperatures of around 25ºC or 26ºC are predicted.

Girona, on Spain’s far north-eastern border, will be around 24ºC, as will Córdoba in the south, traditionally one of the country’s hottest provinces and where the mercury was originally forecast to rise to around 28ºC last weekend.

Today (Thursday), most of the mainland is enjoying sunny weather of around 18ºC – not quite beach temperatures, but enough not to bother with a coat.

Córdoba’s 28ºC did not materialise, but its 24.3ºC on Saturday broke all records and was 1ºC higher than the hottest February 23 documented, in 1990.
