The Three Wise Men will be accompanied by cold and rain in Spain

Christmas day with snow

Many people, especially children, look forward to the arrival of the Three Kings, the day when they will receive gifts and joy. But this year it will be time to bundle up well, as a cold front is expected to touch the mainland the day before the arrival of Their Christmas Majesties.

According to forecasts, the weather will be a little "crazy": we can even get hot during the day but at night we will need a good coat to avoid catching a cold.

What will the temperature be?

Temperature forecast for January 5, 2018

The temperature, as we see in the image, will be more or less pleasant during the day, especially on the entire Mediterranean coast and in the two archipelagos (Balearic and Canary Islands), where temperatures would touch and could even exceed 20 degrees Celsius. In the northern half of the peninsula, the environment will be somewhat cooler, at 10-15ºC.

At night the temperatures will plummet, especially from Friday when the snow level will drop to 600-700 meters in the north of the country.

Will there be rains?

Rain forecast for January 5, 2018

The truth is that yes. The Three Wise Men are going to have many problems both during the Parade and in the delivery of the gifts. The front will enter from the west of the peninsula, leaving significant rains in Galicia, Asturias, Castilla y León, Extremadura, Madrid, Cantabria, the Basque Country and, in general, throughout the territory, being more scarce in the Balearic Islands.

Thus, we will have an end of the Christmas holidays passed by water, with cloudy skies and with the winter clothes on. But there is no harm that does not come: these rains will help the reservoirs continue to fill, something that will be especially useful in summer.

I hope this article has been useful to you and that you can finish enjoying Christmas, even with a raincoat 🙂.
