However, adds the specialist, “throughout the weekend we await the arrival of a small storm with an associated front that could leave precipitation in the extreme north of the peninsula causing in turn a thermal relief in many areas of the country. “

At the moment, a A total of 17 provinces will be on Monday on warning for maximum temperatures, according to the prediction of the State Meteorological Agency (AEMET) for this July 19, a day in which there will be an increase in temperatures in the Ebro valley, the Pyrenees and Catalonia and a decrease in western Galicia, Extremadura and Andalusia, in Malaga and the Canary Islands.

AEMET spokesperson Beatriz Hervella has indicated that the “thermal relief will foreseeably reach all those areas that have maintained warnings for high maximums this weekBut for the moment, he explains that the situation is still marked by a practically stationary ridge over Spain and a storm in the Atlantic that is unable to circulate and thus push this ridge.

However, a small disturbance of that storm will cross the north of the Peninsula this Tuesday and will slightly destabilize the meteorological situation there, but on Wednesday the number will be recovered again.

Hervella has added that on Friday, predictably, this situation will be broken and the Atlantic storm “will head towards France” and will break the situation of high pressures. Thus, he has pointed out that it will provide some water to the northwest of the peninsula and, above all, it will refresh the thermometers in “those areas that had resisted doing so.”

Specifically, the warnings for maximum temperatures in orange (important risk) are concentrated in the Tagus valley. On Tuesday the risk will drop from orange to yellow in Castilla-La Mancha and “practically” will disappear in the eastern third of the Canary Islands.

In general, he foresees that from Tuesday the situation will return “to normal” in terms of temperatures in a large part of the Atlantic coast. Conversely, As the week progresses, more and more warning areas will be opened for high maximums: first on Tuesday, in the northeast quadrant, in the Ebro valley, Huesca Pyrenees, the Maestrazgo and storms will occur in much of the mountainous areas of the northern half that will be “especially significant” in Maestrazgo and the Pyrenees.

In these three days the risk warnings (yellow) will be maintained, both in the Community of Madrid, in the east of Castilla-La Mancha.

The spokesperson emphasizes that on Friday with the storm circulating “with a little more vigor” the maximums will fall in all of Spain, except on the Mediterranean coast and the warnings will lose extension and intensity. In summary, Hervella specifies that the situation will be highly conditioned to this storm and points out that its configuration is “especially difficult to predict”, which is why it advises to follow the meteorological forecast.
