Following a weekend characterized by high temperatures across the country, the State Meteorological Agency (AEMET) predicts a temperature shift with a general decrease for this Monday, except in the Mediterranean coastal region, where temperatures are expected to rise. Inland areas in the southeast and along the Valencian coast may reach 40 or even 42 degrees Celsius during the day.
The eastern and south-eastern areas of the peninsula, along with the Balearic Islands, will also experience notably high temperatures. Additionally, AEMET warns of the potential for locally heavy showers in the eastern Pyrenees as significant weather events.
This weather change is attributed to a cold front moving in from the northwest of the peninsula on Monday, causing instability in the Cantabrian region. Generally, skies are expected to be partly cloudy or with some high clouds and no precipitation. However, a different scenario is expected in the north of Galicia and the Cantabrian area.
These regions may experience cloudy skies with possible precipitation, mostly light, but decreasing along the coasts during the afternoon. There’s a chance of showers in the south of Galicia and the northwest of Castilla y León.
Moreover, in the northern half and the eastern third of the peninsula, there will be daytime cloud development, which may result in dry thunderstorms in the eastern third and the Balearic Islands. These storms may lead to showers in the Pyrenees and the extremities of the Iberian mountain range, with a possibility of locally heavy showers in the eastern Pyrenees.
