The absolute minimum reached in Seville was -5.5ºC in 1954, but in 2005 Seville reached -5ºC in the City, and -8.2ºC in the Metropolitan Area. This year 2009 Seville reached -2.5ºC in the city and -4ºC in the Metropolitan Area. Seville cannot be compared with other colder cities, but It has got considerable records in winter.
The North of Seville can reache more than -10ºC in winter.

it's because the andalucian plain is surrended by mountains, and the sierra nevada range can block the mediterranean weather to enter deep, when the gulf stream become less warm around andalucian coasts, it can give andalucian plains very fresh air (similar to continental weather), and so you got snow :)

Yes, on fact, Seville has got a mediterranean continental climate with hot summers and cold winters, without usual snows in the City but yes in the province, and maybe in the Metropolitan Area (Great Seville). The last snow important in the city was in 1956, but in 2005 snowed without becoming set in some zones of the City. This year 2009 also snowed a bit in the Metropolitan Area.

Fascinating! But on that day when it was -5 in the city and -8 on the countryside, what was the temperature in Marbella?

-5 in the winter and +40 in the summer. Crazy town! ;)

In Malaga (Costa del Sol), the temperatures never reache 0ºC. When Seville reached -5ºC, Malaga (and Marbella) had +4ºC.

it's really warm, but Spain is full of mountains (the second most mountanious country in Europe after switzeland, with an height average around 700m over the sea level) that's why winter time can be really cold inlands :)

By the way, Elsevillano great pics!! Gracias por compartirlas :)

Y AL ALBA BLANCA LE CONTARÉ LO QUE YO TE AMÉ ... SEVILLA!!!

Thank you so much Sevillano for sharing with us these rare pictures of the city. My favorite Spanish city is Madrid but the most beautiful one in Spain I think is Seville. It is a very pleasant and an unforgettable experience to explore the city by foot and do not miss the Barrio de Santa Cruz ( one time a ghetto for Spanish Jews) a lovely quartier full of fountains, little squares with flowers everywhere and where you can get lost in the narrow streets smelling 'azahar' if you are in the right season. If you've never been to the 'Feria de Sevilla' in April try your best to do it and spend 7 nights dancing in the streets with lot of flocklore , 'flamenquito' and the best of all: Meet the friendliest people in the world! One thing I hate from Seville? Yes, the heat in the summertime :lol:

In May is very strange to reach 35ºC, 30ºC yes, but normally in the end of the month. The minimal temperatures can reach 7ºC, even 10ºC in June. The maximum temperatures use to be 25ºC. May uses to be an unstable month, so I´d combine short sleeves with jerseys and umbrella.
