    Extraordinary values have also been tracked, such as 20 ºC below zero in Calamocha and the province of Teruel itself, as well as 25 ºC below zero in Molina de Aragón, making it the lowest official value in this nation since December 1963.

    For their part, Barajas and Toledo airports have certified values of -13 ºC, which has not been recorded in this area since 1920.

    Such has been the level of cold reached that even in cities like Madrid, specifically in the ‘El Goloso’ district, where such a drop is more unusual due to the effect of the city heat island, a minimum temperature of -12.8 ºC has been recorded.
