5 degrees of separation

My parents have been in Spain, staying on the coast as the rather precipitous mountain roads are not to their liking. As a result I have been twisting and turning my way up and down on an almost daily basis. During the summer I have found that there is a 5 degree difference between mountain and coast (hotter at the coast) but this has reduced to around 3 degrees this winter. I wish I knew why.

I'm off to Malaga today to wish them adieu before they return to the cold that is Blighty; so another day of coastal warmth before I retreat to my eyrie and stay there until I complete my book.
