It will depend on where you are in Andalucia, but up in the mountains where I am I can sit around in a tee-shirt and shorts all year provided it's sunny - which is not all the time in winter, as we get the mountain clouds and some wonderful rain from it.
As I said in an earlier post, a house we stayed in in Montefrio in May was the coldest house we have ever been in.
There's a clue in the name - pick a better place to be
My brother spent 2 weeks on CDS in April two years ago, and vowed he'd never ever go back again, unless it was the summer.
A 2-week snapshot of the climate is not really very interesing. We live here full-time and the average climate in the mountains is infinitely better than anywhere in the UK.
Sorry, but you sound a like a voice in the wilderness, you must have your own personal little weather system around your flat.
Maybe we all do - it is a psychological fact that some people can see one cloud in a day and call it a cloudy day. A bit like the half-empty / half-full glass question - it only depends on your attitude.
