Post snap cold
Hello everyone!
Surely many of you think that in Madrid it is not usually very cold, it is not true. From November to March it is quite cold, it is a continental climate. Right now we are in a cold polar wave and the minimum temperatures are announced this week by -6ºC and the worst is that the maximum will be between 2 ºC and 4ºC. I live in the mountainous area and there the temperatures can be a little harder. This is a video today.

Best regards

Cool video Mau looks nice but I guess you sooner it not snow over your tree ferns and bromeliads surely -6 will kill the broms?

Here in central UK its going to be cold over the next week with -3c forecast for the next 3 nights at least.

Mau, it looks like my garden this morning. Temps not as bad here, right now around -2 with a forecast of 2. I agree with Kev, how do you keep your broms from dying in that cold? I hope things warm up a bit for both our gardens!
