Hi Funsters, sat here early hours of the morning reading all the news with our Motorhome in the garage and Ruby our dog laid on my half of the bed upstairs, The weather since the New Year has been bad to say the least so it’s got me thinking how warm is Spain and Portugal this time of year.?.

Here on the Algarve, it’s been mostly blue skies and sunshine during the day since Christmas, around 20° but feeling warmer in the sun, shorts and t shirt weather, but once it goes down (currently about 6pm) it drops quickly, requiring grown up long trousers and a fleece!
Makes it difficult going out in the afternoon if you intend staying out🤣🤦‍♂️

Depends where you are, we’ve mainly traveled through the mountains since crossing into Spain on the Med side a few week’s ago and have had frost most mornings, 13-15 daytime temperatures but no rain which is a big bonus as two weeks through France it was rain pretty constantly. Warmest we been is where we are now, Cehegín, north of Murcia.

We are close to you. Just watched Spanish weather forecast, looks like the really warm period is coming to an end for now...strong winds and low temperatures for most of Spain over the coming week...

Just a tad..
The weather at Mar Menor has been early 20's every day for much of the last two weeks. Blue sky and sun... Past weather is no benchmark of future weather, but it's warm days and cold nights as a standard SE Spain winter formula with a few overcast and the odd wet day thrown in!

We don’t mind cooler temperatures just happy if we can avoid the rain. Other than one pair of shorts we’ve pretty much got a van full of winter gear.
Still deciding whether to trim Margo, the Labradoodle, as days she’s puffing and nights she needs a blanket.

I see you were close re comments on Tams thread, we nearly stopped where you are on way down Saturday, but here they’ve a super shower and washing machines so very much had a cleaning weekend.

We’re in Santiago de Compostela, it’s 8:30am.
It’s raining!
It’s been raining for 14 hours non stop.
The next dry spell is 3:00am tomorrow.
It will be dry for 3 hours.
Then the rain will start again.
The next dry day will be Saturday!
No wonder they call it Green Spain.

Driving past Malaga yesterday on the motorway and temp gauge registered 23C on the MH.

As mentioned, lovely temperatures in the day but it goes cold when the sun goes down.

We are swimming in the sea daily so not too bad.

Spain's rainiest city! Rained non-stop when we were there too. Lovely place though.

Can’t be as bad as Pembrokeshire. Looks like it hasn’t stopped raining since we left home.
Too true. Since we returned to Pembrokeshire last month after 3 months away, it's barely stopped raining, and windy too. Down to minus 4 and sleet this week!

I think you need to contact someone in higher office to get the rain to stop in Santiago, we do our summers in Galicia...July and August it's so hot there, but the coast is cool... the region is perhaps the only part of Spain that has a similar look to the UK...the coastline is Devon and Cornwall..the interior is like many UK counties....

We had family staying in the camper last week. You do need decent heating as it gets seriously cold at about 5am we were reliably informed :) Apart from that it’s pretty good.

I am looking at a suitable pitch as I type Al, which has been empty for a few days, but maybe it is pre booked. No 553.
A good third of the site has been closed at a time, due to pitch service upgrades, so pitch availability is currently at a premium. :(

Good luck getting in. (y)

Cheers,

Jock. :)

Been all way down Spanish coast and into Portugal, been nice all the way south of Barcelona. Only cloudier weather was Faro we are currently about 15 miles east of Malaga and it’s been 18-22 all the way but felt warmer in sun. This was yesterday at the beach near the site.

Thanks Jock

we’ve previously been on 552 in an Autotrail Comanche so same size, let’s hope theirs room for me somewhere on a decent pitch.

I’ve never understood how some can book a pitch and others can’t.

Hopefully we’ll meet up friday ish and my new Tiekom cards have arrived as well

cheers Al

In my experience, the mid-winter daytime weather along the Spanish Mediterranean coast from Valencia to Malaga is similar to late spring in the south of the UK.

Which means it is mostly pleasant, but always prone to variation with damp, cooler and windy conditions at any time.

Nights can be cold, and head just inland to higher ground, and the weather can be much cooler with sharp frosts at night.
