An Inconvenient Temperature!
Spain registered its coldest temperature in recorded history on Wednesday, January 6 with the Catalan Pyrenees logging a bone-chilling -34.1C (-29.3F).
Yesterday’s reading busted the all-time low temperature record for the Iberian Peninsula–which also includes Portugal. The record had stood since February 2, 1956 (solar minimum of cycle 18) when a reading of -32C (-25.6F) was observed in Estany-Gento, located in the province of Lleida.
The new record was provided by the Parc Natural de l’Alt Pirineu, and has been confirmed by AEMET.
