Squalls and rains next week
Next week will begin with the influence of an Atlantic storm in the west of the peninsula that, accompanied by a bagging of cold air, will generate an important change in the weather in practically the entire country, except in the east and the Balearic Islands.
On Tuesday “the rains will become widespread”, said the Aemet spokesman, to influence that the most “intense and hail-accompanied” rains will fall in areas of Andalusia, the center of the peninsula, Extremadura and the Pyrenees.
