    Currently in Valencia area and weather has been not brilliant last few days, very very windy and cloudy, thinking maybe we should go further south next year, whats it like beyond Malaga at the moment.

    That's what the Moroccan Mob thought and had to go way south there to escape the terrible weather.

    17c today here in benalmadena Pueblo, it was warm up in Ronda this afternoon, but it was cold in the wind, no rain at al this week yet.
    On the down side, we've just heard that my cousin' Lukemia has worsened and he only has weeks to live, sort of takes the shine off the whole holiday really. :Sad:

    Hi Silverdreamers - we met you at Marjal last year where we are now. We have been in Benidorm (December) then Marjal since beginning of January.

    We look at the weather maps every day and the most persistent sunshine seems to have been in the Costa Blanca. i.e. Javea/Benidorm/Marjal. Although we have had very cold strong winds some days, there has been little rain and only a couple of cloudy days. For me, its the bright sunshine which makes the winters here so much more acceptable than the UK, and most days, people are sitting out in the sun during the daytime.

    From the reports I've been getting from Funsters in difference parts of Eastern and Southern Spain, weather reports seem to have been pretty similar with perhaps a couple of degrees warmer on the Costa del Sol. As I look out the van while typing this there is a most brilliant orange sunset tonight.

    :Smile:

    We are currently at Almafra, Benidorm, It is nice if you can get away from the North wind which reduces the body temperature.

    Saturday morning was pretty miserable with cold N wind and drizzle, Yesterday was lovely especially by the coast, today not to bad but you need to get away from the wind.

    According to the 10 day weather forcast for this region, cold by night and a N wind during the day.

    Apparantly it has been the coldest winter on the Costa's for 20 years.

    Looked at the BBC Countryfile forecast last night and it showed a cold wind coming from Scandinavia, covering the whole of Europe for the next 5 days.

    Still, at 15 Degrees it is a lot warmer than the UK.

    We have been at Canos de Meca between Cadiz and Gibraltar for the last two months. The weather generally has been quite good, temperature averaging around 14 - 15 degrees. There has been a few days of strong winds with the next being wednesday of around 30mph and next Monday forecast for winds of around 45 - 50mph. Still much better than the UK.

    Don't think you need to go onto the south coast proper to get good weather in winter. We were swimming outside every day in a heated pool in December on a site near Cartagena. Not too far from there is Europe's largest desert, the Tabernas. Wind has been an unusual feature this year, not experienced so much of it before, but we've only seen rain on two days, since the start of November. I have heard it's been snowing at Villa Nova, in the North. over the weekend

    Weather in Spain

    Yes remember meeting you, so you went back to Marjal, we have been at Bonterra for past two months, mostly good weather but these cold winds,
    and a few cloudy days, which we don't seem to remember from Marjal last year. How is the site at Marjal has itgrown up a bit?

    About three years ago we stayed in Fortuna los Banos near Murcia. The site had an outdoor pool fed by a hot spring, the water was a constant 36 degrees. We went in the pool every day of the two weeks we were there, even though a couple of days the temperature was down around 8 degrees.

    Sorry, Bryan, but the word 'terrible' to describe the weather in the South of Spain is misleading.:Doh:

    We have been at Cabopino since 20 Oct & have been in shorts and tee shirts for all but 7 days. It has rained 7 times & compared to the UK, the weather is fantastic. Hot sun yesterday and 28 degs in the shade.

    Benidorm weather is NOT Marbella weather.

    Cheers

    Bill:thumb:

    Lets hope it stays warm. We arrived in N. Spain on Sunday - having been the only residents on Marine Parade on Thursday and the only camper on the ferry on Friday. Had chilly trip through France and pitched up at Zarautz on Sunday in heavy sleet. Went down to Burgos on Monday - my birthday (thanks for the good wishes) in a blizzard and spent a couple of interesting hours behind a snowplough!! However we are now in Salamanca where it is sunny but cool. Hopefully will improve from tomorrow when we head into Portugal. We need more sun!, :Sad:

    Sun is streaming through the M/H window as I type. Today has been overcast with quite a biting wind but am still in shorts but do need a top. We arrived at Javea on 22 Dec and arrived here last week. We have had NO rain during this time but as all have xperience, we have had strong winds and more forecast. So am happy with what I've got so far

    Went into Alicante today and needed to wear, shirt, jumper and gillet to stay warm against the cold Northerly wind.
