They will be “warm days” predicted the spokesperson for the State Meteorological Agency (AEMET), Rubén del Campo, who detailed that, however, Starting Sunday, atmospheric instability will increase in the north of the peninsula. Looking ahead to next week, a atlantic storm It will lead to rain and showers possibly accompanied by a storm in the northern half. For its part, Meteored aims to arrival of a DANA that would leave intense storms in some areas.

He Thursday will continue thermal rise, which will be more pronounced in the northern half of the peninsula, although the values ​​will drop a little in Western Andalusia. So, 25ºC will be exceeded in large areas of the country and points of the Ebro Depression, interior of the Valencian Community, Guadiana and Guadalquivir valleys, and the south of Gran Canaria will exceed 30ºC. The skies will generally be slightly cloudy and, if anything, diurnal clouds will form in the Pyrenees and the Balearic Islands, with some isolated showers in the Catalan Pyrenees and in parts of Mallorca.

The AEMET spokesperson highlighted that as of Friday Temperatures will continue to rise, especially at night. In this way, there will hardly be any areas where it drops below 5ºC at night, while during the day it will reach 30 degrees in the Ebro Valley, in the center of the peninsula and in the southern half of the peninsula. Del Campo specifies that during the day we will reach between 30 and 33 degrees in Toledo, Zaragoza, Seville, Jaén, Huelva, Ciudad Real and Badajoz and even on the shores of the Cantabrian Sea it could be around 28 to 30 degrees

Although, Del Campo points out that uncertainty increases in the face of weekendit seems that on Saturday there will be a increased instability in the northwest of the Peninsula, in addition to a drop in temperatures there. In the east and south of the peninsula, the calm weather will continue and even with a slight rise in thermometers. Clouds of evolution will grow in Galicia, the Cantabrian Sea, Castilla y León and will leave stormy showers that could also occur, although with less probability, in points of the Alto Ebro, around the Iberian System and the Pyrenees.

This decrease would be pronounced in the Eastern Cantabrian Sea and the Ebro Basin, where there could beand 8 and 10ºC less than Saturday. However, the heat will continue in the south and cities like Seville or Córdoba would register 32ºC. In turn, this day there will be an increase in instability and rain and showers are expected in the northern half, especially in the Cantabrian Sea, Alto Ebro and the Pyrenees.

Looking ahead to next week, Del Campo predicts that it will probably begin with the influence of a atlantic storm which will lead to rain and showers possibly accompanied by storms in large areas of the northern half of the peninsula. In general, temperatures will drop, although the environment will still be warm in the south. So on Monday 30 or 32ºC could be exceeded again in the south while in parts of Galicia and the Cantabrian Sea they would remain below 20 or 22ºC maximum.

DANA the weekend

For its part, Meteored adds that a DANA It could arrive during the afternoon of Friday, leaving intense storms in its wake in some areas of Spain. “On Friday there will already be scattered showers in mountain areas of the northern half, but it will be on Saturday when the storms will gain ground in Castilla y León, North Iberian, Cantabrian slope and interior of Galicia, where they will be locally intense and will be accompanied by storms. “.

On Sunday the cold air pocketing will leave a “quite” unstable environment. During the first half of the day, the stormy showers will be concentrated in the eastern Cantabrian Sea and as the hours go by, they will extend to the northeast of Castilla y León, Alto Ebro, the western half of the Pyrenees and Navarra. According to the meteorological portal, “The most complicated situation is expected in the central hours around the Iberian System, with intense storms that will be accompanied by a lot of electrical activity.“.

As for next week, and even though uncertainty increases, a cold storm could leave rain and storms in mountain areas and in the northeast, which could also end up reaching the Balearic Islands. Temperatures would clearly drop in almost the entire country due to the arrival of polar air, especially in the northern half.
