Is it just me or is it definitely getting colder in the evenings now? 

For the first time in ages we actually blew the dust off our quilts as it was actually quite chilly last night where we are in Benalmadena.  I hope it doesn't get too cold now.  this is my first year in Spain and I was rather hoping for warm weather all year round :)

By the way, thanks EOS Team for starting these forums, just what we needed.

I am supposed to be coming out next week. Does that mean that the beach is no go?

I was on the beach at the weekend but it's just in the evenings where I'm really starting to feel the cold a bit.  Don't get me wrong, it's not freezing but you may just need that quilt for bedtime.

The beach should still be alright most days but the water is quite cold here now.

It was certainly a bit nippy today in general.  Mind you, I don't think this year has really been that hot at all.

Hello all you cold people in Spain, just thought you like to know, it was minus 5 here in Bristol last night, so I think I'll pass going to the beach today.

24 degrees here on the Costa del Sol today according to the temperature guage in the car at 11.30 this morning - too hot for a suit really as a bit of a sweat walking from the car park to the office.  A slight breeze too and there has been the odd drop of rain - unheated pools probably too cold to swim unless you are 9 years old. Aint life a bitch! Nights are cooler though and sometimes we have to close the bedroom window.

Regards Smiley

I should add that it can get cold here - I remember slipping on some ice as I was walking past the pool to walk the dog at about 6 am one morning in February 2005.

February is normally very wet - March can have its wet moments too. Ski-ing is possible up in Sierra Nevada. Sea will be cold. When it rains here it can be like sheets of water so I would bring something waterproof just in case. It can be warm and sunny too so prepare for all weathers.

Hi Smiley, I take it your not employed by the Spanish tourist board with all these bad weather reports, I thought like thousands of brits that you and soon to be me were living in constant sunshine, another shattered dream, first Tony Blair now you.

We took a one week visit end Jan / beginning of Feb this year in Almerimar. It was unbelievably cold with heavy rain for 5 days. We spent a lot of time in the car with the heater on or in warm shops! As we drove to Malaga on the last day the sun came out and we had a pleasant few hours in Nerja.
In consolation the TV weather reports showed ice, snow and gales in other parts of Spain - so Almeria didn't get the worst of it.
Be prepared for anything!

Hi Pedyer - sorry to shatter the illusion of 365 days of sun and one day every four years when it rains. Never ceases to amaze me how many people think it never rains here - if you want that you should go to Dubai! To be honest on the CDS we probably get about 4 to 6 weeks worth of rain a year - maybe that is an over estimate but you are right I dont work for the tourist board. If we didnt we would have more trouble with reservoirs than we do, there would be no grass, no golf courses no trees - look around when you are here there is quite a lot of greenery. In November we normally have two or three days of rain - this year has been freak weather and February conditions - flash floods on roads etc, drains not able to cope, dried up river beds looking like Niagara Falls (well maybe that is an exageration but they have been in full flow down to the sea). We even had a day of rain in July and one in August this year - I have not seen that in the three and a half years I have been here. I am told there was snow on the beach in Estepona in 1997 - not enough to settle, but snow nonetheless. The MASSIVE difference is that if it rains constantly for a week or so here you are then compensated by warm sunny weather for about three weeks or so before it comes back again. Additionally even when it is not particularly warm the sky is usually bright - not that grey colour that seems to hang over the UK for 48 weeks of the year (or is that the Westminster effect). I am not susceptible to sunburn but on December 19th 2003 the back of my neck was burned after sitting in one position outside at a bar in Marbella for four hours!

Hope that explains my views and just think it could be worse over there with Gordon Brown at the helm.

Hi bachey.    We spent a week on the Almeria coast near Vera this year in mid Feb.and it was about 18 deg. sunny blue sky with only high cloud and no coats needed in the day but colder inland but still sunny we were told by the people that lived around that area it was very dry most of the year a bit cooler in the winter than the Costa del sol further west but much dryer ,dry is what you need on holiday is that right but be prepared for anything that time of year ,hope this info is useful .           Regards rosi n

Well hello Pitby didnt realise we had any Dubai residents in the forum - I have friends who have just moved there from here - they have lied to me as they told me 365 - 24/7 SUN AND HEAT. Only thing they have to worry about I believe is that they are having a house built on the Palm and it is falling into the sea - or is that another myth.

Pedyer just to update and do my bit for the tourist board  - it has been beautiful here today - about 24 degrees according to the car at 11 this morning and sunny - nice breeze - blue sky with high cloud base. So its not all bad.

Rgds Smiley

Doing my bit for the tourist board - it has been lovely this weekend. Shorts weather still. Beautiful days both yesterday and today - although it is taking a little longer to warm up and gets cooler earlier. Still outside on the terrace this evening in short sleeves at 7 pm tonight but had to turn the patio heater on  then and get a sweater.

Well done smiley, thanks for the weather report, I knew you were having me on about the Spanish weather, shame about having to put the sweater on in the evenings, you will know that it's a tad colder in England at present and that I would need a bonfire to make me sit outside in the evenings, just one thing for future reference, do you still store the beer in the fridge during winter in Spain. Cheers and thanks for the good info you are posting.
