Sunday October 18
Looking ahead to next week, the AEMET reports that this Sunday an Atlantic storm will approach the Peninsula, which still presents considerable uncertainty about its exact position and evolution, but it seems likely that it is located to the west of the Peninsula and is quite deep.
For this reason, the AEMET foresees that it will generate several centers of low pressure and that from there it could then move towards the British Isles. With this situation, he foresees that they will be abundant rainfall likely, Monday in the northwest of the peninsula, Tuesday in the entire northwest half, and Wednesday and Thursday in almost the entire Peninsula.
It also specifies that could be locally strong or persistent and be accompanied by a storm on Monday in western Galicia; Tuesday in the northwest and north quadrant of Extremadura; and Wednesdays and Thursdays in large areas of the western and central peninsula and the Pyrenees.
From Friday October 23 uncertainty increases, although it seems likely that they will already become less abundant although may affect many areas of the Peninsula, especially to the west of the peninsula.
They could also affect the whole week at western Canary Islands while on the contrary, they will be unlikely in the Balearic Islands and in the southeast of the peninsula.
As for the temperatures for next week, the AEMET expects that go up on Monday but go down between Tuesday and Thursday to go back up on Saturday.
The wind on Monday will blow from the Levant in Alboran and with strong intervals in the Strait, while the rest of the week the wind will predominate southern component, with strong intervals and strong or very strong gusts in many areas.
In general, the AEMET expects that the week of October 19-25 is rainier than normal in most of the Peninsula, less in Levante and normal in temperatures, although it will be up to 3 degrees Celsius warmer than normal in the southeast third.
The trend for the week of October 26 to November 1 is expected to be rainier again than normal except in the eastern third, where it will be normal in terms of rainfall and the whole of the Peninsula will have normal temperatures for the time except in the southern half of Galicia and the northwest and west of Castilla y León where they will be slightly colder.
