The start of Holy Week is expected to be clear in most of the country although from next Sunday, and until Good Friday, the entrance of successive Atlantic fronts will leave rains in large areas of the peninsula, according to the State Meteorological Agency (Aemet).
The first weekend, and coinciding with the start of school holidays, the sky will be little cloudy or clear in almost the entire country, except in the eastern Cantabrian and Pyrenees where some rainfall can be recorded, while in Catalonia, Mallorca and Menorca the sky will be covered with some rain on the islands.
During those days, daytime temperatures will increase in most of the territory and the level of snow will be above 1,200 meters.
In the Canary Islands the trade winds will blow, with cloudiness and some weak rain in the north of the islands of greater relief.
From Palm Sunday until Tuesday, the arrival of a frontal system from the Atlantic will leave rains in the northern half of the peninsula without discarding them in other points of the central zone, Levante and Baleares and, on the contrary, very unlikely in the south end.
During those days, and due to the entry of cold air, the level of snow will descend to 1,200-1,400 meters in the north, while daytime and nighttime temperatures will start a downward trend.
In the Canary Islands an increase in the probability of precipitation is expected in the western islands with predominantly northern wind.
On Wednesday, and during the holidays of Holy Thursday and Good Friday, it is likely that a new Atlantic front enters the west of the peninsula, causing a generalized increase in instability.
Precipitation, in the form of rain or showers, could occur in "almost any point of the Peninsula", more likely to the northwest and less likely in the southeast and the Balearic Islands, while in the Canary Islands a situation similar to that of the of previous days.
