Sunny Spain...?

 Well, actually no. Not always and not everywhere. If you've studied your geography, you'll know that temperatures drop as altitude rises. But do you also know that "...the average height of the ground (in Spain) is greater than in any European country except Switzerland..."? (The New Spaniards; John Hooper, Penguin 2006.)

So expect many parts of Spain to get very cold at this time of year. Here's a report from El País with a video for you to translate.

Keep warm!
