The arrival of autumn has been a fact for weeks, and with this season present in Spain the temperatures fluctuate so much that it is difficult to get used to a hot or cold climate. This phenomenon is known as ‘meteorological onion’, as explained by the spokesperson for the State Meteorological Agency (Aemet), announcing that the “onion days” are back, marked by a cool atmosphere in the early morning and warm in the afternoon. That is, temperatures that vary up to 20 degrees depending on the area on the same day.
What does this mean? Why eat an onion? According to the expert, this time forces “to leave the house with several layers of clothing (such as onions) from which we will gradually shed”. Therefore, for this end of the week and soon, stability is expected with morning fogs and slightly cloudy skies in general, except for some scanty and isolated rain, but it is the temperature that will have a great thermal amplitude. This translates into cool early mornings and a mild atmosphere in the middle hours, possibly warmer than normal.
The weather for this Friday, October 15
The weather will continue this Friday to be anticyclonic, dry and stable, except in coastal areas of Catalonia and the north and east of the Balearic Islands where cloudy intervals accompanied by light rains are expected, according to the State Meteorological Agency (Aemet). According to Aemet, there will be medium and high cloudiness in the east of the peninsula and in Galicia, as well as intervals of low clouds at the beginning of the day in areas of the east of the peninsula, the Strait and the Galician coastline and at the end in the Cantabrian Sea.
In the Canary Islands, cloudy intervals will be recorded in the north of the islands and slightly cloudy skies in the rest, with the probability of morning fogs on the Galician coast and the interior of the eastern peninsula. Maximum temperatures rise in the Mediterranean area and fall in Galicia and western Asturias, while the minimum temperatures rise in much of the northern half of the peninsula, with the probability of a weak and isolated frost in the Pyrenees and with little change in the rest.
The wind will blow from the east in the Strait area, with some interval of strong intensity at the beginning and of a southern component in areas of the eastern Mediterranean; it will be weak in the interior of the peninsula, with a predominance of the western component in central hours and not very intense trade winds in the Canary Islands.
