The State Meteorological Agency (Aemet) has warned this Wednesday of an increase in temperatures starting next Friday, which will be between 5 and 10 degrees above normal in much of Spain and even above 15 degrees in the case from the Mediterranean side.
These records will be more typical of the month of May than of March, has specified the spokesman for Aemet Rubén del Campo, who has advanced that they will be imposed until achieving what can be a "recrod" for this time of year as the anticyclonic weather and clear skies, with the exception of western Galicia and points of the Cantabrian mountain range and the Pyrenees.
Thus, the thermometers can mark values above 25 degrees on the Mediterranean slope and the Ebro valley, as well as in cities such as Zaragoza, Murcia, Valencia or Alicante this Friday, while the weekend will be higher, with possibility of exceeding 30 degrees in the southern half of the peninsula and also in the Canary Islands.
In the last hours, temperatures have already reached up to 27 degrees in Murcia and 25 degrees in Girona and Zaragoza, in addition to registering very strong gusts of wind in points such as Estaca de Bares (La Coruña), with 106 kilometers per hour, or Cabo Busto (Asturias) with 100 kilometers per hour.
Some twenty provinces have warnings this Thursday for rain, wind and waves in a day that will be marked by the passage of a front that will sweep the Peninsula, as reported by the State Meteorological Agency.
Almería, Teruel, all the provinces of Castilla y León, Albacete, A Coruña, Lugo, Madrid, Murcia, La Rioja and Valencia are at risk due to wind, while Asturias, Granada, Cantabria will have a yellow warning due to waves that will rise to orange at Galician coast. Due to rain, warnings are also activated in Lugo, Pontevedra and A Coruña.
The front will sweep the Peninsula, leaving cloudy or overcast skies on the Atlantic slope with rainfall that in Galicia and the west of the Central system cannot be ruled out as being locally strong or persistent. The cloudiness and precipitation will spread throughout the day from west to east towards the rest of the Peninsula except for the extreme southeast where rain is not expected with little cloudy skies or with intervals of high clouds, as in the Balearic Islands.
The rainfall will be locally accompanied by storms in the northern half, especially in Galicia, Aragon and Catalonia, where an occasional hailstorm cannot be ruled out. After the passage of the front, the rainfall will cease and clearings will gradually open up, except in the northwest of the peninsula and around Las Béticas, where cloudiness will remain with the probability of weak rainfall.
The skies will be slightly cloudy or clear in the Canary Islands, although with more cloudiness in the north and eastern islands at first. Snow level above 2,000 meters dropping to 1,600/1,800 m except in the northwest where it will remain at 1,600/1,800 m all day.
There will also be probable morning fog banks in the main mountain and sierra areas of the Peninsula.
The maximum temperatures in decline except in the islands where they will tend to increase and the minimums with few changes or in decline in the western half of the peninsula and the Cantabrian area and increasing in the rest.
There will be winds from the west and southwest in the Peninsula and the Balearic Islands, becoming strong on the coasts of Galicia, and also increasing at strong intervals in the western Cantabrian and Alborán. Likewise, very strong gusts are expected in large areas of the northwest quadrant, interiors of the eastern third and Almería coastlines.
