The AEMET warns of the arrival of a front that will deliver intense rains and storms in these regions

Temperatures will rise over the next few days, with values ​​that are expected to be between 5 and 10 degrees more than normal for the season in a good part of the country, until around 38 to 40ºC on Friday in the Guadalquivi valleyr, according to the prediction of the spokesperson for the State Meteorological Agency (AEMET), Rubén del Campo. However, these July temperatures will contrast with the fresh environment in the Cantabrian Sea, especially this Monday and Thursday, days in which the maximum temperatures will remain below 20ºC. Facing the weekendit is likely that there is a drop in temperatures that will end up being generalized, but that will be more marked in the north of the peninsula. In general, the sun will predominate and the rains will be limited to the extreme north of the peninsula until Wednesday. Starting Thursday, they could fall stormy showers in points in the north and east of the Peninsula. Likewise, a shower could also fall in the Balearic Islands.

This Monday temperatures will drop in the northeast of the peninsula but will rise in the west. Thus, temperatures will exceed 30ºC in a good part of the center and south of the Peninsula and it will reach up to 34ºC in the Guadalquivir Valley. The atmosphere will be cooler in the north, with light rains in general, without ruling out some locally intense showers in the Pyrenees. On Tuesday there will be a marked thermal rise in the northern third of the peninsula, which will go from a cool environment to a milder day with maximums of between 22 and 24ºC in the Cantabrian Sea. In the southeast of the peninsula, temperatures will drop a little, and in the rest they will not vary much. That day it will exceed 30º in the Ebro Valley, central and southern half; 34 or 35º can be reached in cities such as Badajoz, Ciudad Real, Córdoba or Seville.

He Wednesday Temperatures will rise again in practically the entire Peninsula and the Balearic Islands. Thus, temperatures will exceed 30ºC in large areas of the northeast, northern plateau, central zone and southern half. In addition, temperatures will exceed 35ºC in the Tagus, Guadiana and Guadalquivir Valleys. By cities, Valladolid will reach 32ºC; Lleida, Madrid or Zaragoza will be around 34ºC; Cáceres, Toledo or Ciudad Real will be 35ºC and Seville and Córdoba will be close to 37ºC. “They will be temperatures typical of midsummer, in the month of July,” says the AEMET spokesperson. Night temperatures will also be high and Extremadura and Andalusia will experience some tropical nights. At the other extreme, the coolest environment will occur in the Cantabrian Sea, where Santander or San Sebastián will be around 20ºC and Bilbao or Oviedo will be around 24ºC.

How long will the heat last?

He Thursday It will again be a very hot day for the season, again with midsummer temperatures in the center and south of the Peninsula. In this framework, there will even be a slight rebound in the center and in the south of the peninsula. In this sense, many points will dawn with tropical nights and temperatures will generally exceed 34 or 35ºC and 38ºC in the Guadalquivir Valley. On the contrary, A front will sweep the north of the territory and leave rain in the Cantabrian Sea and the Pyrenees in its wake, with locally strong storms in northern Catalonia. At the same time, it could also rain lightly in parts of the rest of the Catalonia, Aragon and north of the Valencian Community. In the northern half, there will be a thermal drop in the northern half. Above all, it will occur in the Cantabrian Sea and the Pyrenees, where the atmosphere will be cool and the maximum temperatures will remain below 20ºC.

Although he Friday It could still be a fairly hot day, especially in the southern half of the Peninsula, it is possible that the thermal drop will extend to most of the country facing the weekend, although Del Campo points out that there is a lot of uncertainty in this regard. In the south of the peninsula, temperatures will continue to exceed 32 to 34ºC and in contrast, in the Cantabrian Sea and Alto de Ebro, they will barely reach 20ºC. In addition, instability will increase in the north and east of the territorywith rains and showers in the Eastern Cantabrian, Pyrenees and northeastern Catalonia, which in the afternoons could extend to other parts of Aragon, Catalonia, northern Valencia and the Balearic Islands.
