Autumn was very rainy and quite cold. Mild winter and a cold beginning for Spring, then with average temperatures and scarce rainfall. From the onset, summer started with record temperatures above 30°C, however what characterized the 2020 estival months was practically the absence of precipitation, barely amounting 30 mm. A couple of late showers in August brought some relief, even if September temperatures were above average, but with the expected diurnal range.
