Today, strong winds in Galicia and the Cantabrian, and rising temperatures

Today, strong winds in Galicia and the Cantabrian, and rising temperatures



The State Meteorological Agency (Aemet) foresees strong winds on the coast of Galicia and Cantabria, as well as in the Cantabrian mountain range, and rising temperatures in a large part of the country.

A new Atlantic front is expected to affect the northwest third of the peninsula, with rain and showers, which may be locally strong and persistent in western Galicia and also in the surroundings of the western Cantabrian Mountains.

Cloudy intervals with the probability of occasional showers in areas of eastern Catalonia and the Pyrenees, with a predominance of medium and high cloudiness in the rest of the Peninsula. In the Canary Islands there is a probability that there will be weak rainfall in the western end of the islands at the end of the day.

Daytime temperatures will be rising in much of the country, except in the Mediterranean area, where there will be few changes or will be in decline.

In the Peninsula and the Balearic Islands, the wind will have predominance of the southern component, strong or with intervals of strong in Galicia and the Cantabrian mountain range, which will roll west at the end of the day, and with probable strong gusts in the Cantabrian coast.

The wind will be from the east in the Strait, and in the Canary Islands the winds will be weak, tending to roll to the southwest in the west of the archipelago.
