Thanks but do you know a site that publishes historical temperatures. I really curious whether last year it ever ducked below freezing here...

Wunderground.com should list historical but doesn't seem to record such data in Spain....

UPDATE...wunderground gives historical for Barcelona which had a winter low of +1C. Impressive!!

The Spanish Met Office (AEMET) publishes historical data, back to 1981, in English.

Climatological data - State Meteorological Agency - AEMET - Spanish Government

Talking about weather, it's been snowing in the mountains all around Madrid so as I drive to the station or sit on the train I am treated beautiful views every morning.
And that's just how I like it, with the snow on the mountains and not on the streets!

I don't know if there are fewer tractors but t's a legal requirement to have special winter tyres in areas where there is regular snow, and to carry snow-chains and a shovel in your car.

The main difference is that snow is entirely predictable in the mountainous regions of Spain, so unlike the UK it doesn't take people by surprise.

We were on a trip in our car about 12 years ago, when we heard on the radio that one of the puertos which we had to cross was closed to vehicles without snow chains. So we stopped in a town, bought some chains, and carried on.
When we arrived at the road leading up the mountain, the GC waved us through saying that we should take care, but the snow had been cleared and that there was no need for chains...
I still have the chains, sealed in their case which has never been opened.... for all I know it could be full of rusty nails and bolts!
