March weather update: clouds and rain dominate the Canary Islands

March begins with successive fronts bringing varied weather, particularly in the Canary Islands with cloudy skies and rainfall concentrated in the north.

As March unfolds, a series of successive fronts announced by Cayetano Torres, spokesman for the State Meteorological Agency (AEMET), promises a diverse mix of weather conditions across Spain. These fronts are expected to bring rain, wind, snow, cold temperatures, and frost, persisting into the following week. In the Canary Islands, the onset of March brings cloudy skies and precipitation, particularly concentrated in the northern regions.

Beginning with Friday, the mainland will experience the influence of two fronts. The first front will affect the Iberian Peninsula, bringing cloudy or overcast skies and precipitation, especially in the Pyrenees, Catalonia, and the Balearic Islands. Meanwhile, a second front entering the northwest of the mainland will bring increasing cloudiness and precipitation, predominantly in Cantabria, Asturias, and Galicia, with significant snowfall expected in mountainous areas.

Throughout the weekend, an Atlantic front will traverse the mainland, resulting in widespread cloudy skies and rainfall, particularly in the northern regions. In the Balearic Islands, occasional precipitation accompanied by thunderstorms is anticipated. Similarly, the Canary Islands will experience cloudy skies with precipitation, primarily affecting the northern regions.
