Light rains are forecast for Monday in Galicia and the Cantabrian communities. The sky will continue to be slightly cloudy in the rest of the country, although clouds will evolve, causing possible scattered showers in the afternoon in the centre and northwest of the country.

Temperatures will rise in the eastern Cantabrian, the Valencian Community, and the Balearic Islands. Zaragoza could experience around 35ºC, like the interior of the Murcian regions, and Mallorca will approach 31ºC.

In the rest of the country, there will be a thermal drop of up to six degrees in the western end of the peninsula. Badajoz, Madrid, and Salamanca should experience around 25 or 27ºC, a typical temperature for the time of year.

Tuesday, May 31 and Wednesday, June 1

On Tuesday and Wednesday, the Atlantic storm will continue to leave rain, more abundant than on Monday. This will be the case especially in Galicia and Asturias, with some weaker rainfall spreading into Castilla y Leon, and Extremadura.

A somewhat cooler and unstable environment is forecast for the second half of the week. This can see storms in the centre, north, and east of the country.
