I am starting tommorow my 4 week trip to Spain (10 days near Barcelona, 1 week near Valencia, 10 days near Malaga – will be my first time in Malaga area). 50% work related.
I won’t look to buy property, maybe just asking here and there about the prices to make an idea.
Which can I find most accurate Spanish weather forecast? I checked many of them and they differ by at least 5-6 Celsius.
I wish everybody an enjoyable Summer.

Its summer, do you really want to the know the forecast. Evan a few cloudy days bring relief.
There will be a difference of few degrees anyway between Barcelona, Valencia & Malaga and they have there own matrix.
Dont worry about the weather just enjoy.

The summer jetstream, that usually passes above Scotland, has once again moved below the UK and is swinging around the Bay of Biscay. Low pressure is attracted to this stream and hence weather patterns become unsettled and unpredictable. Spain is, I believe, experiencing more thunderstorms than normal.
Is this correct anyone?

Havent seen thunderstorms at all, but there were very high winds through the night and today its overcast and cloudy but still very warm, just no direct sun.

It’s because we’ve got it all in Crete 😛 – 40 degrees outside and the Cicadas are going ballistic.
Talking of which, if you have 5 minutes to spare watch this film.
Turn on sound.
So that’s what the little blighters look like and get up to is it!
Enough to drive a body potty.
Bit like reading this site which I also have returned to after a good number of weeks oh dear… what has been going on?

Charlie, you are leading a very exicting life in Crete !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Great film Charlie….
I love the sound of cicadas. Just been sailing around the islands of Southern Turkey and, wow, what a noise they made!
You’re going to Sydney. There’s a wood there called (or nicknamed) Cicada wood. Just north of the city. Ask the locals, they’ll point you in the right direction. The noise is so loud, you cannot here yourself speak. 😀

Charlie..you’re living in Crete, you lucky b*****r. Love Crete. I have happy memories of sleeping on the beach for a month, with my girlfriend, in a little fishing village called Malia. (It’s ok folks – I married her! 🙂 ) We pursuaded a fisherman to take us out to Spinalonga – the old leper colony. We were stepping over skeletons n open graves etc.
Malia’s a bit different now 🙁

I would venture you could step over the whitening bones of more than a few ex estate agents on the hills of the CDS if you want to, which should cheer up a few people on here!
