Alicante Beats its Temperature Record in January by Reaching 29.2º.

IN just ten days the province has gone from snowfall, frost and a minimum of four degrees on the coast to enjoying an almost pre-summer week.

The tropical maritime air and the west wind have caused the thermometers in Alicante to reach 29.2 degrees in the middle of January – equalling the historical record of 1982 – and registering the maximum temperature in Spain today (January 28), according to figures reported by the Observatory of Climatology of the University of Alicante.


  • Xàbia – 26.7 degrees
  • Castelló de la Plana – 25.7
  • Miramar – 25.6
  • Oliva – 25.5
  • Pego – 25.4
  • Benidorm – 25.3
  • Xàtiva and Sagunt (Valencia) – 25.1
  • Alicante and Elche – 25
  • Llíria (Valencia) – 24.9

Interestingly, the number of daily records of high temperatures is much higher than that of lows during the last decade: between 2010 and 2020 there were 19 records of low temperatures by 124 of high temperatures when in a stable climate they should be 55-55. This shows that records for high temperatures are more frequent and that cold days are increasingly rare.
