The irruption of warm winds in the Peninsula will cause a rise in temperatures this weekend, with maximums of 30 degrees or even more in points of the south and east of the peninsula -where could reach up to 35 ºC– and an atmosphere more typical of summer, according to the spokesperson of Aemet, Rubén del Campo, who has predicted for the next few days “a warm atmosphere for this time of year” in most of the country.
Saturday, the thermometers will rise in the interior of the Valencian Community and the Guadalquivir valley, and in some points they can even reach 35 degrees, which would be the first time that such high temperatures have been reached this year, maximums that will remain throughout Sunday and that may extend to other parts of the Region of Murcia and south and east of Andalusia.
In the northern half of the peninsula, and despite the rise in the thermometer throughout the weekend, temperatures will be cooler, “with values included between 20 and 25 degrees in the northern plateau and between 17 and 20 degrees in the Cantabrian“, although on Sunday there could be” a slight decrease “in a generalized way in the northwest.

In the same way as the peninsular areas, both archipelagos will experience a rise in temperatures, although in the case of the Canaries it will probably be lighter.
As for the sky, the blue of the center and the south of the Peninsula will contrast with the most compact cloud cover in the far north, caused by the passage of frontal systems that could even leave rains today in parts of the Cantabrian Sea and the Pyrenees, although they will be remitting throughout the day from east to west, and precipitation is also expected in the northeast of Catalonia and the Balearic Islands, “where also showers can be accompanied by a storm ”.
On Sunday temperatures rise on the southern and eastern coasts, according to the forecast of eltiempo.es, and the first warning for high temperatures in the Peninsula: 36 ºC in the towns of the interior of the southern littoral zone from Alicante. However, temperatures can rise to 38ºC.
The provinces with more than 35ºC will be: Seville, Córdoba, Cádiz, Málaga, Almería, Murcia, Alicante and Valencia. These values can also occur in the east of Huelva and the west of Jaén. It will be the hottest day. The areas that will suffer the most with values between 36-38 ºC: interior of Valencia, south of Alicante, northeast of the Region of Murcia, Seville and Cádiz.
The temperatures will be somewhat more bearable by the sea thanks to the breezes, since the highest values could be registered a few kilometers inland. The coastal area that may have the highest temperature will be Malaga: very warm terral wind shooting the thermometers in the surroundings of the capital where there may be 35 ºC. Talso Temperatures will rise in Catalonia and the Balearic Islands during Sunday, in the interior of Mallorca the maximum will be about 34 ºC.
The Saturday and Sunday, the arrival of a new front will make it rain in Galicia with more abundant showers in the west of the region, that will be spreading, although in a weaker way, to the Cantabrian Sea, Navarrese Pyrenees and other points of the northern third in a more isolated way. On the weekend the rains to the Canary Islands, but they will be weak and will affect only the north of the islands with greater relief.
Del Campo has also warned of strong winds during the weekend in the Canary archipelago, with gusts that will exceed 70 or 80 km / h, and even 90 km / h, on the peaks of Gran Canaria and La Gomera. The winds will also be strong in Galicia and the Cantabrian Sea, “as well as intense wind and north wind,” according to the Aemet spokesperson.
For next week Anticyclonic weather is expected to last, “at least until Wednesday”, with temperatures above 25 degrees in much of the Iberian Peninsula and above 30 degrees in the southwest.
However, the arrival of north winds will cause the same Monday to drop the thermometers in the north and east that Del Campo has even described as “extraordinary”, with drops of up to 10 degrees compared to the previous day in points of the Ebro basin.
The continuity in the passage of frontal systems to the north of the Peninsula will lead to greater cloudiness and precipitation, generally weak and scattered, in Galicia, Cantabrian Sea and the Pyrenees, which could occasionally spread to other points in the northern third.
