The voters who will elect their mayors and a large part of their regional governments this Sunday will have an electoral day marked by instability, rain, showers and storms that will affect most of the country, except the Ebro valley, eastern Catalonia, the Cantabrian coasts and the extreme south of the peninsula, according to the forecast of the State Meteorological Agency (AEMET).

Specifically, it is expected that in Galicia citizens will vote under cloudy skies with stormy showers that will be less likely in coastal areas and more intense and that could even be accompanied by hail and be locally strong in the south of the community. Temperatures will be around 24 to 27 degrees Celsius.
In addition, in Asturias they will have cloudy skies in general without precipitation but the spokesperson does not rule out a stormy shower in the interior of the Principality and maximum temperatures in the environment of 24 to 26 degrees Celsius.
