The almost summer days of this first week of May come to an end due to the arrival on the peninsula of successive cold fronts, which will favor a “change of weather” for the next few days, when rain, storms and a gradual drop in temperatures gain prominence again.
From this afternoon the change will begin to be noticed in points of the northwest and north of the peninsula, where strong storms are expected and even hail accompanied by cooler values, the spokesperson of the State Meteorological Agency (Aemet), Rubén Del Campo , who points out that between Saturday and Sunday the maximum will drop generally between 6 and 8 degrees.
The “minimums a little less”, and in any case nothing to do with Central European countries, where the arrival of a “cold weather will lead to a sharp drop in values” for the next few days, said Del Campo.
In the face of the locally strong storms and hail forecast for this afternoon, the Aemet has activated the yellow alert (risk) in 6 communities (Asturias, Cantabria, Castilla y León, Basque Country, Galicia and La Rioja) due to rains that will accumulate 15 liters per meter square or more in an hour.
Tomorrow, Saturday, rainfall will continue, perhaps with less intensity, in Galicia, the Cantabrian area, Navarra without ruling them out in the mountains of the eastern peninsula and at the end of the day, in the rest of the western third of the peninsula, due to the approach of an Atlantic front .
This daytime daytime temperatures will remain with few changes, even warm in wide parts of the Mediterranean, Balearic and Canary Islands and other areas.
By province capitals, Lleida will register 29 degrees followed by Granada, Logroño, Murcia and Zaragoza with 28 degrees and from Albacete, Almería, Badajoz, Bilbao, Castellón, Ciudad Real, Córdoba, Girona, Guadalajara, Málaga, Pamplona, Teruel and Toledo, among others, with values that will oscillate between 27 and 25 degrees.
The coolest capitals will be Ávila, Oviedo and Santander where the thermometers will range between 18 and 19 degrees.
Sunday will be a very rainy day with showers and storms that will spread throughout most of the country and strong and / or persistent locally are expected in the Cantabrian and Pyrenees, Central system and the peninsular northeast.
“It will be a very difficult day with persistent rains and hail but only in the north, northwest and center, because in the southeast areas, just four drops will fall.”
For this day, the Aemet maintains the yellow warning for storms in Aragon, Catalonia, Navarra and the Basque Country and for waves in the Balearic Islands, the region of Murcia and in Andalusia and with values that fall generally.
Next week, Del Campo has detailed, will begin with a few days “clearly colder and wetter than normal in the whole country”, with rainfall that will persist on Monday in Galicia and throughout the rest of the north of the peninsula, although less intense than the day before, and in the mountains of the southeast.
On Tuesday, instability will increase in the south of the Peninsula, where rainfall will be likely, and will decrease in the north, with a low probability of rain in the Cantabrian and northern Galicia.
The spokesman stressed that on that day it is expected that “the wind will change to the eastern component”, a situation that will affect the Mediterranean area with downward records, also recovering its usual values in this area.
Although there is uncertainty regarding the situation as of Wednesday, the trend shows a decrease in temperatures and a generalization of instability, which would continue until the end of the week, with rainfall and storms throughout the peninsula, Ceuta, Melilla and possibly also in the Balearic Islands.
During these days temperatures are also likely to be slightly below normal values.
