Autumn in Spain will be warmer than average, says Met office
20 September 2019 @ 19:07

SPAIN'S weather office says the country will enjoy a warmer-than-usual autumn after the fifth summer in a row with above-average temperatures, and dramatic differences in rainfall from region to region.

Autumn officially starts at 09.50 mainland Spain time (08.50 in the Canary Islands) this coming Monday, September 23, and thermometers will average 0.6ºC above the typical figure seen for the time of year – apparently a negligible rise, but in practice, given the sharp temperature variations throughout the country, is likely to be clearly felt.

Summer 2019, based upon data collected so far with just three days to go before it ends, was 0.8ºC hotter than the average, which it has exceeded for the fifth year running, with a mean temperature of 23.8ºC round the clock, and two intense heatwaves.

It also involved a drought – in meteorological terms, at least – down the western half of the mainland, from Galicia to western Andalucía, and also in the Balearic and Canary Islands.
