Several stations, some run by meteorological aficionados but who record values in real time, believe that the temperature of -34.1ºC (-29.4ºF)has been reached in Clot del Tuc de la Llança, in the Pyrenees, in the province of Lérida.
The negative temperature of -34.1ºC was first recorded by ” Projecte 4 Estacions “. Two unofficial meteorological organizations, the website “Meteo Valls d’Àneu” and “MeteoPirineu.com” say the cold record was set at 4.19 pm this Wednesday in Spain . Both sites receive data from a weather station installed at a ski resort, according to the newspaper “La Vanguardia”.
The Aragon delegation from the State Meteorological Agency and Noromet and the Meteorological Association of the Northwest Peninsular, have both officially recognized the figures. However, the record has not yet been validated by the Meteorological Service of Catalonia , where Clot del Tuc de la Llança is located .
The Spanish press says the number of -34.1ºC is considered very likely. “La Vanguardia” says this beats the record set in 1956 of -32ºC in Estany Gento (a lake of glacier origin), in Vall Fosca , in the Spanish municipality of Torre Cabdella .
In the last few days, negative temperatures have been constant in Spain , especially in mountainous regions. In the Navarra region, for example, on Tuesday night some areas of the Pyrenees and the Urbasa mountain range registered values below -10ºC.
