The week says goodbye this Sunday with heavy rains in the Cantabrian and Pyrenees area, snow in the north of the peninsula and the Pyrenees, and gusts of strong or very strong wind in the Galician and Cantabrian coasts, Pyrenees, Ampurdán, under Ebro, Balearic Islands, surroundings of Alboran and the Canary Islands.
The prediction of the State Meteorological Agency (Aemet) indicates that this Sunday the extreme north of the peninsula will be cloudy or covered with rainfall accompanied by occasional storms that could be locally strong or persistent in the Cantabrian and Pyrenees area. With less intensity, the rains will affect the Central and Iberian and Balearic systems, and with less probability, the surrounding areas of the northern half, Penibético and Estrecho.
In the rest of the peninsula it will be little cloudy or with intervals. In the Canary Islands, cloudy intervals are expected in the north of the islands, with some weak rainfall in those of greater relief, and little cloud in the south.
The snow level will be around 900/1200 meters descending in the Pyrenees at 500/800 meters and in its eastern part locally at 300/500 meters, descending in other areas at 700/1000 meters and, later in the day, going up the northwest and center at 1000/1400.
Maximum temperatures will drop in the peninsula and the Balearic Islands, a decrease that can be notable in the Pyrenees and the upper Ebro, and the night temperatures will drop in the northeast and the Balearic Islands and will rise in the southern half.
The Aemet announces frosts in the main mountain systems and nearby areas, which will be weak in general but which in the Pyrenees could become locally strong.
The winds will blow from the northwest in the peninsula and the Balearic Islands, intense in general, with intervals of strong and / or very strong gusts in the Galician and Cantabrian coasts, Pyrenees, Ampurdán, surroundings of the lower Ebro, Balearic Islands, surroundings of Alboran and other mountainous areas . In the Canary Islands the trade winds will blow, with strong intervals in the western islands.
