The AEMET predicts that an unstable situation will continue in the eastern third of the peninsula, with abundant cloudiness and precipitation accompanied by storms that could become heavy in inland areas of the extreme northeast and southeast, and locally accompanied by hail. Showers with storms are not ruled out in other regions of the central east of the peninsula and some snowflakes are expected at high levels of the Pyrenees.

The Balearic Islands will have unstable weather, with cloudy skies and showers that cannot be ruled out becoming locally strong. There will also be clouds in the northeast of Galicia, the Cantabrian slope and the upper Ebro, with some morning fogs and weak and scattered rainfall, more likely in the mountains.

Temperatures will drop in the Pyrenees, Balearic Islands and the Northern Plateau, and will rise or will not change in the rest of the peninsula. On the other hand, the minimums will decrease in the northeast quadrant of the peninsula and eastern Cantabrian and will rise in Castilla y León, without major changes in general in the rest. By area, the provincial capitals that will register the highest values ​​will be Badajoz, Córdoba and Seville with 31ºC; Cáceres and Huelva with 28ºC; and Ciudad Real and Jaén with 27ºC.

When does the heat return to Spain?

Starting on Thursday, there will be a trend towards more stable weather and the rains will be limited to the extreme north, where they will fall due to the passage of fronts. However, it cannot be ruled out that showers will occur on both Thursday and Friday, generally weak and dispersed, in parts of the center and east of the Peninsula and the Balearic Islands, especially in mountain areas.

Temperatures will rise across the country on Thursday and on Friday they could exceed 30ºC in large areas of the northern plateau., as well as in the northeast, center and south of the Peninsula. In the Ebro, Guadiana and Guadalquivir valleys, it could reach 32 to 34ºC.

For its part, Meteored indicates that Thursday will be a transitory day, with some residual and isolated showers in the east and the Balearic Islands and that during the last hours a frontal system will arrive that will leave rain and some storms in Galicia and Asturias. Between Friday and Saturday, the front will advance and leave rain on the northern plateau, Alto Ebro, Cantabrian slope and the Pyrenees. Thus, thanks to the advance of the trough at altitude, storms will form in the interior southeast that will move towards the Balearic Islands and Catalonia.

As for next week, Meteored experts advance that We will continue with widespread cold anomalies, both on the Peninsula and in both archipelagos. In most of the country, temperatures will be several degrees below average.

The last week of June, temperatures will begin to normalize. It will be intensely hot in the west of the peninsula, but still with cold anomalies in the Balearic Islands and the eastern Canary Islands. However, according to Meteored, We will have to wait, predictably, until the first week of July, for the intense heat to become widespread on the Peninsula.
