storms, rain and thunder

The unstable weather of the past period in Spain will not improve this weekend. In fact; the Spanish weather service Aemet expects storms and showers throughout almost the entire country, which can be locally heavy and accompanied by hail and thunder. 

With this forecast, the Aemet will issue weather alerts for no less than fourteen of the seventeen autonomous regions in Spain for Friday. Code yellow for this Friday due to rain and storms in most of Andalucia, Aragon, Asturias, Cantabria, Castile and Leon, Castile-La Mancha, Catalonia, Galicia, Madrid region, Murcia region, Navarra, Basque Country, La Rioja and Valencia, and only for rain in the Balearic Islands. 

Furthermore, thunderstorms are also expected in central and northeastern Spain. Temperatures on Friday vary between 17 and 25 degrees.

Rain will return to the northern part of Spain on Saturday afternoon 

The vast majority of Spain is therefore in code yellow on Friday. On Saturday, this weather alert will remain in force, but the risk area will mainly move to the northern part of Spain. 

It will start fairly quiet on Saturday morning, but from mid-afternoon the Aemet warns for storms and rain in Castile and León, Galicia, Asturias, Cantabria, the Basque Country, Navarra, Aragon, the interior of Catalonia and La Rioja. Thunderstorms are also expected on Saturday afternoon and evening. However, this will be very localised in the interior of the regions mentioned. Moreover the temperatures on Saturday are mild and are almost the same as on Friday. 

Extremely wet on Sunday but no weather alert yet 

For the time being, the Aemet has not issued a weather alert for Sunday. However, the Spanish weather service predicts a soaking wet Sunday in Spain. Rain will fall in almost all of the country with the exception of a few islands in the Balearic Islands and some coastal towns along the Mediterranean Sea. Then on Sunday it looks to be slightly warmer again with temperatures varying between 20 and 27 degrees.
