May has been an odd month when it comes to weather. During the week the weather has been pleasant in almost all the Spanish provinces, while during the weekend the temperatures have descended considerably, even raining and spoiling the possible outdoor plans for the free days. Now that May says goodbye it leaves sunny skies and high temperatures, although in the north of the peninsula will still rain at the beginning of the week.
The weather during this week will be quite calm and stable thanks to the anticyclone approaching the Iberian Peninsula from the northwest. The skies will be slightly cloudy, although from Wednesday this anticyclone will bring calm even to the northern third of the peninsula. But what happened to the cold winds that have accompanied us during this weekend? Well, they have moved little by little towards the Mediterranean area, so today these cold winds have still been felt in some areas of Catalonia, Valencian Community and the Balearic Islands.
The maximum temperatures will reach 35ºC in some provinces of Andalusia
Today temperatures are around 35ºC in provinces such as Seville and Córdoba, although they will be colder in the north of the peninsula. In capital cities such as Santander, Bilbao, Gijón or La Coruña, maximum temperatures will remain below 20ºC. These temperatures will increase slightly as the week progresses, so everything seems to indicate that May will leave leaving us a pleasant spring-like weather.
In addition, for those who are allergic to pollen we recommend that they take appropriate precautions. Pollinosis levels this week are especially high throughout the country, especially in the southern half of the Iberian Peninsula. Remember that you should clean the dust daily and ventilate your home in the hours of least accumulation of pollen, between 10:00 and 19:00 and between 22:00 and 5:00. If you have pets you should also take a series of precautions to take care of their health. And if you are going out to the countryside, protect yourself from the sun and take the antihistamines and medicines recommended by your doctor. Cheer up, the pollination period is almost over!
