North-south weather divide: High summer in Andalucía, winter in Cantabria Save
29 May 2019 @ 22:49

FOUR seasons in one day – or at least in one week – are relatively common in May and the northern half of the country tends to be cooler than the south; but this weekend will bring a rare, extreme contrast, says the Met office.

Whilst residents in and visitors to Córdoba and Sevilla will be blessing the invention of air-conditioning, those in the Basque Country and Cantabria will be digging out their coats.

According to the State meteorological agency, AEMET, temperatures at either end of the mainland between Thursday and Sunday will be polar opposites – in a manner of speaking – reaching up to 37ºC in the south and barely reaching 14ºC in the north.

The land-locked Andalucía cities of Sevilla and Córdoba are typically the hottest in Spain – in fact, the latter has named a street after the man who invented air-conditioning, saying he literally saved their lives – and this weekend will be no exception.

Elsewhere in Andalucía, particularly the inland province of Jaén but also in south-western Huelva and Granada in the south-east, the mercury is set to soar to around 33ºC or 34ºC, climbing to 35ºC in Badajoz in the western region of Extremadura.

The south end of Castilla-La Mancha will be less extreme but still summerlike with temperatures of 31ºC to 32ºC in the province of Ciudad Real, in the dead centre of the country.

Cáceres (Extremadura) will be less torrid than its neighbour, Badajoz, at around 31ºC.
