On Thursday, the Canary Islands will continue to experience extreme heat, with a yellow warning for high temperatures still in effect. However, in the eastern, southern, and western parts of Gran Canaria, the warning will be upgraded to orange as temperatures are expected to reach up to 37 degrees Celsius.

Across Spain, a total of 19 provinces will be under yellow or orange warnings for high temperatures, rainfall, and storms, according to the State Meteorological Agency (AEMET). These provinces include Castellón.

Specifically, Cordoba and Jaen in Andalusia will face a significant risk of high temperatures, while Huelva, Malaga, and Seville will be at risk for the same reason.

In Aragon, Huesca and Teruel will be under a yellow warning for rain and storms, while Avila will face a yellow warning for high temperatures.

The provinces of Albacete, Ciudad Real, Cuenca, and Toledo in Castilla-La Mancha will be under a yellow warning for heat.

The Community of Madrid will be under a yellow warning for high temperatures, and in the Valencian Community, Castellón will be at risk for rain and storms.

In the Peninsula, an approaching Atlantic front will lead to increased instability in the north and northeast. Cloudy or overcast skies are expected, with precipitation extending eastward in the northern regions of Galicia and the Cantabrian area.

The rest of the northern and eastern parts of the Peninsula will experience an increase in cloudiness, with diurnal showers and thunderstorms, particularly in the Pyrenean area, Catalonia, and the Iberian system. Some of these storms could be locally heavy and accompanied by hail.

The Balearic Islands and the northern areas of the Canary Islands will have cloudy intervals, while the rest of the country will experience partly cloudy skies.

Maximum temperatures will decrease in most parts of the country, with a more significant drop in the northwest and relatively stable temperatures in the Mediterranean region. Nighttime temperatures will remain largely unchanged.

Winds will predominantly blow from the north in the northern half of the peninsula and the Canary Islands, with strong intervals along the west coast of Galicia and in the Canary Islands. Western winds will prevail in the southwest of the peninsula, while the Balearic Islands will experience winds from the east. The wind direction will be variable in the remaining areas of the country.
