The State Meteorological Agency (AEMET) foresees for today, Friday, snowfalls in high areas of the northern half of the peninsula, night temperatures rising in the interior and daytime in decline, with values below normal for the time on the Atlantic slope and Mediterranean Andalusia.
In the Atlantic and Cantabrian western slopes, as well as in the Mediterranean Andalusia, cloudy skies or covered with generalized precipitations are expected, that will be more frequent in the western coast of Galicia and without discarding some occasional storm.
The cloudiness and precipitation will spread throughout the day to the rest of the Peninsula, and may also affect the Balearic Islands and tend to remit in central and south-western areas of the peninsula.
They could be locally strong or persistent in the south of the Pyrenees, area of the Strait and west of Galicia, while they will be weaker and less likely in the eastern Cantabrian, the Ebro valley, the east of the Balearic Islands and the south-east peninsular coast. In the Canary Islands, rains in the north and the probability of occasional showers in the south of the mountainous islands.
The level of snow will be located in the Peninsula: in the northwest third at 500 / 1,000 m., Rising during the day to 800 / 1,200 m .; in the Pyrenees at 700 / 1,000 m., rising to 1,200 / 1,600 m .; in the southeast at 1,200 / 1,600 m., down to 1,000 / 1,200 m., and in the rest of the areas at 900 / 1,400 m. down to 800 / 1,200 m.
In the interior of the peninsula, nighttime temperatures will be on the rise and daytime temperatures will fall, with values below normal for the time in the Atlantic slope and Mediterranean Andalusia.
Frosts are expected in the mountainous areas of the southeast and the northern half of the peninsula.
The winds will be from the north in the Canaries, from the southern component in the northeast of the peninsula and the eastern Mediterranean area, and from the west or southwest in the rest, being strong in the Alboran coastline and with intervals of strength in the rest of the southern coast, Pyrenees, Galician coast and the Balearic Islands.
