A DANA will bring cold and rain typical of winter

After several days of good weather, the Meteorology Statal Agency (AEMET) has issued a warning that thermometers will drop again in the coming days as a result of the entry of a pocket of cold air: “The next monday and tuesday The temperatures will be those of a month of February, both in maximum and minimum”, explains the organization in a statement. This change in trend will affect the Peninsula and the Balearic Islands, with the exception of Guadalquivir valley.

However, the drop in temperatures This Monday won't be the worst. The agency predicts a much more drastic worsening of temperatures on Tuesday, with the appearance of frost in several areas of the interior. Specifically, the report states that “widespread frosts are expected on Tuesday in flat areas of Castilla y León, Teruel and Cuenca.” A phenomenon that could be particularly severe during the first hours of the day, when temperatures could drop between 5 and 10 degrees below than normal for this time of year.

As explained by Rubén Del Campo, spokesperson for the AEMETIn statements to OndaCero, the temperatures on Monday and Tuesday will be “more typical of the end of February or the beginning of March in some areas of the northern half.” Furthermore, they anticipate night frosts in interior regions of the north and center of the peninsula. In certain cases, the wind will intensify the perception of cold, increasing the severity of the weather conditions. “This cold weather will be accompanied by a decrease in snow level, which will be located in the north of the country at around 700 meters. Although the rainfall will not, in general, be abundant and, furthermore, it will be limited to the extreme north, to parts of the Mediterranean and the Balearic Islands,” he pointed out.

weekend prediction

Refering to climatic situation For the remainder of the weekend, the truth is that, although it will not be as bad as at the beginning of the week, it is quite far from ideal. An Isolated Depression at High Levels (DANA) will influence the climate in the south of the peninsula. This will destabilize the weather in that area, increasing the probability of showers, which could be accompanied by storms. The intensity of these climatic phenomena is expected to be more pronounced in mountain areas in southern Extremadura, Castilla-La Mancha and Andalusia; being able to be accompanied even hail. During Saturday, rains are also expected to affect Ceuta and Melilla.

This Sunday, it is expected that rainfall “could also occur in Catalonia“. Normal temperatures are anticipated for this time of year, before the expected change starting next week.
