The AEMET spokesperson, Rubén del Campo, explained that the weekend will be characterized by skies that in general will be slightly cloudy or with high clouds in the morning but from noon, clouds of diurnal evolution will begin to grow and that by the afternoon will lead to showers, in occasions accompanied by storms, which will be more likely in mountain areas and their immediate areas.

The first alerts for strong heat arrive in Spain: these are the areas with up to 38ºC

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...

Strong streak of summer heat before the storm in Spain: where it will be more than 30ºC

The "barometric swamp" in which the Peninsula is installed this week will give rise to a dry, stable and rainless weather in the whole country, with temperatures that will rise day by day until reaching summer values, of up to 30 degrees Celsius at some points, until Saturday, when the arrival of a storm is expected, as reported by the State Meteorological Agency (AEMET). The AEMET spokesperson, Rubén del Campo, explained that barometric swamp is the term used to indicate that atmospheric pressure is very similar in most of the territory and that this will happen during this week. However, between Thursday and Friday a storm will form in Atlantic waters, whose deepening will probably take place very quickly, so we can speak of explosive cyclogenesis, something that will h...

An explosive cyclogenesis arrives in Spain in the middle of May: risk of storm this week

The month of May is leaving a succession of powerful storms in the mid-latitudes of the North Atlantic, advises Francisco Martín, a Meteored expert. Despite circulating on its "normal" routes, one of them could affect us at the end of this week and during the next. These storms are subjected to drastic deepening processes due to the presence of a very intense polar jet, a vigorous “river” of wind that circulates at an altitude of about 9 kilometers separating the cold (polar) air masses from the temperate (subtropical) ones. For much of this week, storms will not affect us in their entirety. The anticyclone that has settled in the Iberian Peninsula will cause stable weather with little rainfall until Saturday. This center of high pressures will also provide a increased ...
