A large part of Spain has suffered the effect of Storm Domingos in recent days, especially the Cantabrian coast and Galicia.

The Atlantic front brought wind, rain and significant storms to the north and centre of the country. As the storm moves away, it has left a cooler environment due to the arrival of a polar air mass. This has caused a generalised drop in temperatures across the territory.

This Tuesday’s minimum temperatures were the lowest of the autumn according to AEMET, the State Meteorological Agency.

Some cities, including Teruel, Ávila and Logroño, recorded negative values as a result of the mass of cold air that has appeared over the mainland they reported.

A drop in temperatures was forecast for this week

AEMET had already predicted that a general drop in temperatures would occur at the start of this week, along with more rainfall and strong winds in some areas of the country.

Morning mists or fogs were predicted to form in mountainous areas in the north, with less probability in the south and on the northeastern coasts.

These low temperatures were expected to be milder in Andalucia and in the Mediterranean areas, as well as in the Canary Islands.

A progressive increase in temperatures is expected to start from Wednesday that will continue until the weekend, along with an increase in the snow levels in mountainous regions.

Maximum and minimum temperatures should increase, reaching their highest values ​​on Sunday 12. Murcia and Valencia could see values of around 25ºC.

Although there will be less frost in the early morning, Wednesday could dawn with temperatures below zero in some of the country’s capitals warned the experts.
