Temperatures will rise slightly on the mainland and the Balearic Islands, although in general, they will remain lower than normal for the time of year.

Regarding temperatures, she suggested: “On Monday they could drop in the Mediterranean area and rise slightly in the rest, but even so, the maximum will continue to be around the same values ​​as the weekend”.

“On Tuesday, they will rise in the west and fall again in the eastern half. As of Wednesday, they could begin to rise throughout the country, an ascent that would continue on Thursday of next week”, the expert added.

Maximum values ​​above 27-28ºC would not be reached the weather specialist assured, with the nights becoming colder.

Finally, the weather model indicates for the following week, from May 29 to June 5, that temperatures will continue to be cooler than normal in the southern half and warmer in the northern third.
