Spain is to see a mixed bag of weather during the Pilar public holiday that started today, Friday, October 8.

Friday 8 and Saturday 9, will see clear skies with occasional high clouds or with high clouds. In Mediterranean coastal regions, these clouds will be abundant due to the maritime winds, and there may be weak rainfall. The Valencian Community could experience heavy rainfall on Saturday.

The Cantabrian area, and the north of the Canary archipelago will also experience cloudy skies. In the interior of Galicia, the Castilian-La Mancha plateau, and in the Strait, banks of fog will appear.
