AEMET warns of general climate change

The last week of January left us with good weather in most of the Spanish territory thanks to the increase in temperature that left us with open skies and the possibility to go outside without shelter. Although these high temperatures will continue over the peninsula, the State Meteorological Agency (AEMET) predicts the arrival of an Atlantic front with rain and snowfall starting on February 8.

Samuel Biener, a meteorological expert, pointed out that the temperature of the day has broken many historical records due to the increase in temperature in many meteorological observatories. However, the minimum temperature continues to decrease but does not leave many frosts. This Friday, the anticyclone located over the Peninsula will continue to maintain the sky with some clouds in the north of Spain (Navarra, Cantabria, and the Basque Country) and will leave a little rain. As for the fog, this phenomenon will form again in the Duero and Ebro basins.

This weekend, the sky will remain partly cloudy in the north of Galicia and the Cantabrian coast, with light rain in the Strait area. The fog banks are in Castilla y León, the interior of the Galician community, the Ebro basin, and eastern Andalusia. Meanwhile, in the Canary Islands, there will be cloudy skies, especially in the north of the archipelago, with haze.

Forecast for the week

The week of February 4–11 will experience a major change in the peninsular climate with the arrival of a DANA. Although not many changes are expected in the first days of the week, starting Thursday, February 8, the anticyclone over the territory will begin to disperse, allowing Atlantic storms to enter the Peninsula. In this way, the rain will benefit the drought-affected areas of Catalonia.

In addition to rain, there is a great possibility that snow will fall in the form of rain in high mountain areas such as the Central System, the Cantabrian Mountains, the high areas of Galicia and León, and the Pyrenees. Regarding the Canary Islands, the arrival of the front end will reduce the temperature, thus cleaning the air full of suspended dust that will decrease.
