SPRING weather will arrive early this weekend to most of Spain with temperatures similar to those in mid-May; hardly any rain is to be expected as the sun will be shining in most parts of the country.

Warm air masses are due to enter the Spanish peninsula due to an anticyclone originating from the interior of Europe, according to AEMET.

The difference between AM and PM temperatures will increase up to 20 degrees in 24 Spanish capitals from Thursday; i.e. Cordoba can expect up to a maximum of 25 degrees during the day and a minimum of three degrees at night.

One of Spain’s Met Office’s spokesmen, Ruben del Campo, stated that temperatures during the night will be ‘normal’ but day temperatures will increase between five and 10 degrees above the normal number in most of the peninsula as of this Friday.

Del Campo has highlighted stable weather for the rest of the week with no showers in sight, except for some light rain in Melilla and in the mountainous areas of the Canaries.

Tomorrow (Thursday) will be very similar to today’s (Wednesday) weather, with some clouds but temperatures will continue to rise.

Friday will be the day with the highest thermal rise of the week, especially in the eastern half of the peninsula and the Canary Islands.

The warmest temperatures are set to arrive on Saturday and Sunday, with thermometers reaching up to 28 degrees in Cordoba, 27 in Seville, 25 in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and Tenerife and 24 in Granada and Madrid.
