This month began with summer temperatures and says goodbye with rains and storms. Autumn is here to stay! Check out all the details of the weather in our weekly forecast.
Last week the cold front or DANA affected strongly the Mediterranean area of Catalonia and the area of the Cantabrian Sea, while an anticyclone swept the southern part of the Iberian Peninsula. For this more winter week with the time change new rains await us, which will be especially intense in the northwest area and in Galicia from Wednesday. In addition, this new front will bring cold air in these provinces.
On the other hand, temperatures for this week will be generally mild, because winds from the south will predominate. In this way, we will see maximum temperatures between 20 and 24ºC in most Spanish populations, while the minimum temperatures will not fall below 10ºC at the beginning of the week, with the exception of León, where minimum temperatures of 6ºC are expected. On Tuesday, slightly higher temperatures are expected because of the southern winds, even reaching 28ºC in Murcia. Also, in the Canary Islands the temperature will be pleasant, staying between 21ºC and 29ºC.
However, as the week goes by, the southern anticyclone will move away towards the Atlantic Ocean and the low-pressure area in the north will become more intense. Therefore, it is very likely that during the weekend there is more rainfall and cold winds, so it is recommended that you look for a Halloween costume that keep you warm.
The time change in Spain
This Saturday in Spain the clocks have been delayed one hour. This change is supposed to be made to save energy, but it has been proven that this is not true. 93% of Spaniards voted to eliminate the time change in a public consultation in Brussels. It seems that the year 2021 will be the last year that we will make this time change in Europe, but it remains to be decided whether we will keep the summer or winter time. Most Spaniards prefer summer time to enjoy more hours of daylight in the afternoon, but both proposals are still being studied.
