ALMOST 30 provinces across Spain are on alert for cold temperatures this week.
Cadiz, Cordoba, Jaen and Granada are all on a yellow warning for plummeting temperatures from tomorrow while Malaga and the Costa del Sol are expected to see the mercury fall from this Friday.
The cold snap is thanks to a mass of polar air which will affect mostly north and central Spain this week before bringing up to a 7C drop on the Costa del Sol this weekend.
Tomorrow will be Malaga and the Costa del Sol’s last warm day with highs of 21C before Thursday sees temperatures plummet to lows of 8C with a maximum of 14C.
Saturday will be much the same with lows of 8C and highs of 15C, which will boost to a maximum 18C on Sunday.
However further inland will see temperatures drop to between 0C and 11C in the likes of Antequera and Ronda from tomorrow.
Toledo and Soria will be among the worst hit from Thursday, where temperatures could reach as low as -6C.
According to AEMET spokesperson Rubén del Campo, some areas of Spain may see temperatures as low as -12ºC.
The forecast does not, however, include snow.
“Not much is expected,” explained Del Campo to El Pais. “Not due to a lack of cold, but rather a lack of precipitation, given that this mass of air is very dry.”
