winter weather in June

The arrival of a DANA (Isolated Depression at High Levels) on the Iberian Peninsula has led to a significant drop in temperatures and intense precipitation in Burgos over the past few days. On Thursday, several hailstorms were recorded in various parts of the province, making the weather seem more like winter than one day before summer.

One of the hardest-hit areas was Las Merindades. Residents of municipalities like Trespaderne and La Horra were surprised by a massive hailstorm in the afternoon. In just a few minutes, more than 30 litres of hail per square metre fell, covering both places with a thick white blanket. This blanket was not only of hail, but the accompanying downpour created rivers of water mixed with hail flowing rapidly through the streets, as seen in numerous social media posts.

Hailstorm impact on vineyards

Trespaderne and La Horra were not the only spots in the province to experience hailstorms. Various areas of Ribera del Duero were also affected by hail, which appears to have caused damage to several vineyards, though precise data is still lacking. This area was similarly hit by a severe hailstorm a month ago, on May 18, causing considerable damage to the vineyards.

Yellow weather warning until Thursday evening

The Spanish weather agency AEMET has maintained a yellow weather warning for storms in the southern half of the province for Thursday afternoon. Some stability is expected to return on Friday, although the temperature rise is likely to be limited. The chance of rain and storms will significantly decrease. In Castilla y León, a yellow warning remains in effect for rain and storms, with alerts for Ávila, Burgos, Palencia, Segovia, Soria, and Valladolid.
