what to wear in January. do you need Jumpers?

We have just booked a weeks holiday in torremolllinos for the last week in January, we were wondering what to expect weather wise, and if we would need jumpers , or will the weather be spring like. Never been before at this time of the year so really dont know what to expect.

During the day you can expect temperatures in the mid to high 60s so a T Shirt or light jumper is often enough. Expect the odd short but VERY sharp shower so carry a fold-up umbrealla in your bag.

However, as soon as the sun starts to go down around 3 p.m., it goes very cold so you will need a warm coat for nighttime.

In January we can see snow on the mountains and if the wind is blowing from there - frequent occurrence - you will need full English winter wear. There is a ski resort quite close by. Most of us have padded anoraks and the ladies can often be seen in fur coats walking along the prom in day time. That does not mean that turning a corner and getting out of the wind you can't sit in shirtsleeves and you can be lucky and the wind is coming from the Sahara. but it won't get into the sixties for more than a few hours in the middle of the day. It can rain hard too. We have roughly the same amount of rain as England (most years) but it comes in far fewer days and then buckets down so be ready for that.

Nightime it can get very cold. Torremolinos has never had a temperature recorded below 0C but has got pretty close.

Having said that it is one of the pleasures of living here to sit in the January sun, having a coffee and watch the world go by.
