The beginning of Holy Week will be marked by sunny weather and rising temperatures that will leave very pleasant values between 24 and 28 degrees in large areas, although in the second stage holiday, the rain will regain prominence in large areas of the country.
The forecasts point to a Holy Week "very variable", has advanced to EFE Rubén del Campo, spokesman of the State Agency of Meteorology (Aemet) to note that after this start "radiant and with heat", the situation will turn to instability and a sway in temperatures.
From this Friday, the beginning of the holidays for thousands of Spaniards, the trend indicates a "progressive and generalized" rise in temperatures, except in the Levante, Balearic and Canary Islands, with values between 2 and 5 degrees more than last days, said Del Campo.
Today the ascent may be "remarkable" in areas of the northern half of the peninsula where in provinces such as Zaragoza, Zamora, León, Bilbao, A Coruña and Logroño the maximum range will be between 20 and 17 degrees, while in areas of the south and east, cities like Seville will rise to 23 degrees and Murcia and Malaga up to 25 degrees.
In the peninsular center the day, without being hot, will be pleasant and so in Madrid and Toledo is expected to reach maximum values between 19 and 20 degrees.
On Saturday, the anticyclone "sits throughout the country", except in Galicia, and the maximum continue to rise, Del Campo detailed.
By provincial capitals, Murcia will enjoy the warmest day with 28 degrees followed by Malaga with 26 degrees, Seville and Badajoz with 25 degrees and Albacete, Almeria, Cáceres, Ciudad Real, Cordoba, Huelva, Lleida, Orense, Toledo and Zaragoza with values that will oscillate between 22 and 24 degrees.
Palm Sunday will continue a stable time, with values almost increasing, which will shoot locally the maximum up to 30 degrees in Murcia, although from the afternoon, the approach of a storm west of the peninsula will leave rains, scattered and weak , in Galicia and in the Cantabrian areas.
Next week will begin marked by the "successive step of several frontal systems" that will cross from west to east the Peninsula and that on Monday and Tuesday will leave rain in areas of Galicia, north plateau, Cantabria, Asturias and central peninsular, and less likely the more to the south and southeast of the country; the temperatures will start a generalized descent.
Between Wednesday and Holy Thursday, the forecasts point to a repetition of previous days, with the entrance of another Atlantic front in the northwestern peninsular with rainfall will be extending from west to east and accompanied by storm.
"Throughout Thursday almost any point of the Peninsula may be affected by the rains, the meteorologist has advanced.
Those days the temperatures would rise before the passage of the front to return "to fall of accused form" after its passage, and, for example, in cities like Madrid, between Thursday and Friday, the values will descend 9 degrees, happening of 28 degrees Wednesday to 17 on Thursday.
In Seville it would go from 29 degrees, also on Wednesday, to 21 on Thursday, while in Ávila the thermometers will fall from 21 degrees on Wednesday to 14 degrees the next day, has detailed the Field.
In the Canary Islands the possibility of occasional rain in the north of the islands of greater relief will persist.
On Good Friday and Holy Saturday, even with much uncertainty regarding atmospheric evolution, the predictions point to a slightly unstable time in areas of the north of the peninsula with a tendency to stabilize in the rest of the country and temperatures that would begin a gradual rise.
