Specifically, Aragon and Huesca will be at risk for snowfall; Asturias and Cantabria will be on orange alert for coastal phenomena; and Baleares will be on yellow alert for coastal phenomena.
In Castilla and Leon, Burgos, Leon and Palencia will be on yellow alert for snowfall; and in Cataluña, Girona for coastal phenomena, Lerida for snowfall and Tarragona for wind and waves.
La Coruña, Lugo and Pontevedra will also be on orange alert for waves; Navarra on yellow alert for snowfall; Guipuzcoa and Vizcaya in the Basque Country on orange alert for waves; and Castellon in the Valencian Community on yellow alert for wind.
This Friday, a large part of the country is expecting an anticyclonic situation, although the far north will be under the influence of an Atlantic front that will produce cloudy skies and precipitation, which will move from west to east over Galicia, Cantabria, the Ebro and the Pyrenees.
In the Canary Islands, the sky will be cloudy with precipitation in the north of the islands. The maximum temperatures will increase in the Meseta. Temperatures will decrease in Andalucia, Murcia and Galicia.
