Nine municipalities in the province exceed historical highs for this month

The month of January is being much warmer than normal in Catalonia, especially in the province of Girona, where nine municipalities have today broken their maximum temperature record for this month, according to data from the Catalonia network (XEMA) of Meteocat , which collects the measures of the last twenty years. Today’s maximum temperature has exceeded 20 degrees in most of the pre-coastal and Central Catalonia, as well as in some mountain areas, such as Garrotxa and Ripollès.

The municipality that recorded the highest temperature was Anglès, with 25.4 degrees, which exceeds by 0.2 degrees the previous record, established on January 27, 2003. It is followed by Vall d’en Bas, in La Garrotxa , with 25.3 degrees, which exceeds by 2.2 degrees the record of January 20, 2007. Other Girona municipalities that have reached new highs are Cassà de la Selva (24.2), Vilobí d’Onyar (24.1 ), Fornells de la Selva (23.6), Espolla (23.6), Sant Pau de Segúries (21.6), Núria (16.7) and the Malniu peak (15.7).

Of the 21 Catalan municipalities that have exceeded their maximum temperature record in a month of January, almost half are from the province of Girona, where the highest values ​​in the north-east of Catalonia have been recorded. Very high temperatures have also been observed in unusual places, such as Garrotxa, where 25 degrees have been reached, or Olot, where 25.2 degrees have been reached.

An anticyclone causes spring weather and no rain

The cause of this unusual heat episode is the presence of a very powerful anticyclone over the Iberian Peninsula, which is causing very stable weather without precipitation, with very high and unusual thermal anomalies in the atmosphere. This situation will continue for at least another week, as reported at the beginning of the week by an Aemet spokesman.

According to Meteocat, tomorrow Friday the maximum temperatures will remain around 23 degrees. Towards the weekend, the weather will remain very stable, with spring temperatures, although with a slight downward trend.
