This research analyzes the meteorological conditions of four different places in Spain. The case study is based on real data provided by the AEMET (Meteorological Spanish Agency) in 2009. Thirteen variables with atmospheric conditions are considered. Different Statistical and Soft Computing Models are applied to show the great variability of the environmental conditions in the four well selected places. The results are confirmed by the Annual Environmental Summarized 2009 provided by the AEMET.
