Unusually high temperatures for February are being predicted this week by AEMET

According to Ruben Del Campo, a spokesman for the State Meteorological Agency (AEMET), a new anticyclonic weather situation will develop in the first half of this coming week. This will bring predominantly dry and sunny weather to parts of Spain, with temperatures above the normal values ​​for the month of February.
Temperatures will rise during this weekend but go drop again from Friday, February 11. Winds are expected to remain predominately from the east, generally loose, with possible strong gusts in the Strait.
On Monday there could still be an intense wind from the northwest in the Ebro valley, the Balearic Islands, and, with strong intervals, in the northeast regions of Catalonia.
