The cold air mass that last weekend caused a sharp drop in temperatures across Andalucía is now history. In fact, for the next few days the Spain’s State Meteorological Agency (Aemet) is forecasting a rise in the mercury in practically all of the region.

The provincial capitals that will see the highest maximums for the weekend will be Seville, Huelva and Cordoba. In the first two, the mercury will reach 24 degrees on Saturday and Sunday, while in Cordoba it will be around 22 or 23 degrees.

In Malaga it will be the minimum temperatures that will mainly rise, going from 11 degrees this Friday (12 November), to 13 on Saturday and 14 on Sunday. However, the highs will drop from the 23 degrees on Thursday to 21 this Friday and 20 degrees on Saturday before rising again on Sunday to 22 degrees.

In Granada province, the minimums will rise from the 0 degrees on Thursday to 6 degrees forecast for Saturday and Sunday. The maximums, in addition, will rise from Thursday’s 19 to the 21 that is forecast for the weekend.

Light rain not ruled out

This rise in temperatures will also be enjoyed in Jaén with a maximum of 20 on Saturday and 19 on Sunday. In Cadiz and Almeria provinces, the minimums will not drop below 11 degrees and the maximums will not rise above 21 degrees.

Skies will remain generally clear, except for cloudy morning intervals in the extreme east where some light rain cannot be ruled out on Saturday. The winds will blow lightly.
