The weekend will be marked again by stable weather, temperatures well above the usual values for this month, up to 25 degrees in Andalusia, Levante and northern peninsular, and by the lack of rain, although on Sunday the passage of a front it will leave weak showers in Galicia and Cantabrian.
We continue under a “dry and sunny weather forecast”, except for some intervals of low morning clouds, and with temperatures between 5 and 10 degrees above normal, he told EFE, Rubén del Campo, spokesman for the State Agency of Meteorology (Aemet).
A month and a half after the beginning of winter, the warm trend expected for this month is confirmed with maximum records that, for example, between Sunday and Monday will reach up to 25 degrees in the Guadalquivir valley and points of the Cantabrian cornice, and above 20/22 degrees in large areas of the southwest peninsular.
Regarding the dense and persistent fogs parked in recent days in numerous communities in the interior of the peninsula, Del Campo has pointed out that “they tend to remit” with which the sun will gain more prominence.
Today it will once again be a day where temperatures will be warm in almost the whole country, with more intensity in the south and east of the peninsula where Murcia, Alicante, Valencia, Cádiz, Granada, Córdoba and Seville, will record the maximums with values that will oscillate between 20 and 23 degrees, while in the peninsular center Madrid will rise to 17 degrees and Toledo to 19 degrees.
Rubén Del Campo has also highlighted for this day the 21 degrees that will be reached in capitals of provinces such as Bilbao, the 20 degrees of Oviedo and the 19 degrees of Santander.
Saturday’s day is expected to be warm with maximums between 23 and 20 degrees in Seville, Murcia, Oviedo, Granada, San Sebastián, Córdoba, Cádiz, Alicante, Almería and Bilbao; the coolest day will be spent in Castilla y León with values close to 12 and 15 degrees; at night, the minimums will continue high for the time of the year, with weak frosts only in the Pyrenees.
During Sunday, the highs will rise “fairly widespread” and in points of the Levant and the north of the country maximums of up to 25 degrees will be recorded.
For next week, the outlook is not very promising, with intense storms circulating in northern Europe in the medium term, while in the southern part of the continent, you will barely see the passage of the fronts, which, at most, could leave some weak and scattered rains in the northwest.
On Monday an Atlantic front, very little active, that will arrive in Galicia will leave abundant clouds in Galicia and some rain, in general, weak, and it will not be until Tuesday and Wednesday, when a weak sea flow is established towards the north and east coastlines peninsular that will cause dispersed rainfall in the eastern Cantabrian, Pyrenees and Mediterranean coast.
Thus, the rainfall of these days may be in the form of snow in the Cantabrian Mountains and the Pyrenees above about 1,000 or 1,200 meters with weak frosts not only in the central and northern mountain systems, but also in the Plateau; the rains will be associated with a thermal decrease that will favor the recovery of usual values.
For Thursday, dry and sunny weather is expected except in the peninsular northwest, the Strait area and the north of the Canary Islands, where there will be possible rainfall, generally weak.
This situation of warm values and scarcity of rains in the peninsula contrasts with Europe where the announced stormy “Dennis” will leave the next hours strong winds, bad sea and heavy rains in the British Isles, northern France and the Netherlands, among other countries.
A “very deep stormy train” is expected, but which will barely touch Spain, except for some sea storm and wind in the peninsular northwest, Del Campo has concluded.
