The month of June opens this Wednesday with uneven weather in Spain because the most intense heat will be in the Ebro valley, where thermometers will reach 36 degrees, temperatures will be between 5 and 10 degrees higher than normal inside of the eastern half of the peninsula and in Mallorca, and rains and showers will appear in the west of the peninsula.
The prediction of the State Meteorological Agency (Aemet), indicates that there is a yellow warning -risk for outdoor activities- in areas of Zaragoza (36 degrees on the banks of the Ebro) and for heavy rains of at least 15 liters per square meter in an hour and intense storms in Asturias (except the eastern coast) and Lugo.
The meteorological summer -which covers the months of June, July and August- arrives this Wednesday with rising temperatures in the eastern Cantabrian Sea, the Pyrenees, the Balearic Islands and the Mediterranean coast from Almería to Girona, and falling temperatures in the Canary Islands and western Castile and Leon and Extremadura.
Most of the peninsula and the Balearic Islands have a 70% chance that this meteorological summer will be warmer than usual, and that probability is 60% for the Canary Islands, Galicia, western Asturias and northwestern Castilla y León .
The hottest capitals will be Zaragoza (36ºC), Lleida (35), Murcia (34) and Córdoba, Granada, Huesca, Logroño and Pamplona (33), while it will be milder in Santander (21) and A Coruña, Ávila, Cáceres , León, Lugo, Oviedo, Pontevedra, San Sebastián and Salamanca (23).
It should be noted that the thermometers will reflect between 10 and 15 degrees more than usual in areas of Navarra and La Rioja, which will have the heat more typical of the dog days than of the beginning of June.
On the other hand, a storm located to the west of Portugal will affect a large part of the peninsular northwestern third, with cloudy skies, showers and occasional storms in general, which may be locally strong and persistent on the coast of Galicia and in mountainous areas of Galicia and Asturias, mainly during the afternoon. It is possible that they also have a certain intensity in the environment of the western Cantabrian Mountains.
There is a 50% chance that it will rain less than usual throughout the peninsula except for the northeast third and the Valencian Community, where it is 40%, as in the Balearic Islands.
For the Canary Islands, the seasonal forecast does not show a clear trend, but rather the precipitation in the archipelago could be normal in the summer quarter.
There will be cloudy intervals and clouds will develop with the possibility of showers and scattered storms in the mountains of the eastern peninsular third.
The sun will shine in the rest of the peninsula and the Balearic Islands, although with intervals of low clouds in western Andalusia, the Levantine coast and Catalonia, and in the Balearic archipelago. Cloudy intervals are expected in the Canary Islands with probable showers on the islands with greater relief.
Finally, this Wednesday winds will blow from the south and southeast on the coast of Galicia and the Balearic Islands, from the east on the Cantabrian coast, from the southwest on the Atlantic and Strait slopes, from the southeast in the Ebro valley, of variable direction with a predominance of the south. in the rest of the peninsula and in the west and northwest in the western Canary Islands.
