Southern Spain in January, 2012..

Planning a trip to some southern Spanish cities. Anyone can give info

on the type of weather we would encounter...e.g. Seville, Malaga,

Granada, or other suggestions. Looking for cool but not too cold!

Malaga - quite pleasant during the day with temperatures often in the mid 60s BUT it goes cold as soon as the sun starts to go down mid-late afternoon so a thick coat is needed at night.

Seville a little cooler.

Granada cold - after all it is very close to the ski resorts!

You should get some good sunny days throughout Southern Spain but should also expect the odd heavy shower.

Don´t forget that there is much more to Andalucia than cities so allow a few days in teh countryside.

I have been in Andalusia during January and the highest day temp was just 6 deg, mostly raining. So I would say be prepared for anything. as weather is totally unpredictable.

It depends on where you go.

If you are planning to visit Malaga or the coast, then expect temperatures to be around 15-18 deg Celsius during the day. Some days even intro the 20's.

6 deg in Málaga City would be extremely rare.

Mentorcari:

Ronda will be cold but will be worth visiting on a day trip.
