The warm episode of these days in May will peak this Saturday with warnings in 11 autonomous communities for abnormally high temperatures and at least 35 degrees in 22 provincial capitals, with heat in large areas of the peninsula and the Balearic Islands, and some storms in the northwest .

The prediction of the State Meteorological Agency (Aemet), collected by Servimedia, indicates that 24 provinces spread over 11 regions have intense heat warnings activated, distributed in three zones.

One of them is the center and the southern half of the peninsula, with a yellow warning – risk for outdoor activities – in Almería (36 degrees in the West and the capital), Ávila (36 in the south), Badajoz (38 in Las Vegas). del Guadiana), Ciudad Real (38 in the entire province), Córdoba and Seville (39 in the Campiña), Cuenca (36 in La Alcarria and La Mancha), Granada (39 in the Genil basin), Guadalajara (36 in La Alcarria), Jaén (38 or 39 in the entire province), Madrid (38 in the entire province except the mountains) and Toledo (from 36 to 38 in the entire province).

Another covers the northeast of the peninsula, since there is a yellow notice in Barcelona (36 in the central depression and 34 in the pre-Pyrenees), Girona (35 in the Ampurdán and 34 in the Pyrenees), Guipúzcoa and Vizcaya (35 in the interior) , Huesca and Navarra (34 to 36 in the entire province), La Rioja (36 on the banks of the Ebro), Lleida (36 in the central depression and 34 in the Pyrenees), Teruel (37 in Bajo Aragón) and Zaragoza ( 38 on the banks of the Ebro and 36 in Cinco Villas and la Ibérica).

And the third is located in the northwest of the peninsula, with a yellow notice in Ourense (36 in the Miño) and Zamora (36 in the plateau).

Temperatures will rise quite a bit in Galicia and the Cantabrian area, and somewhat less in the eastern third of the peninsula, and will drop in western Andalusia. There will be more than 35 degrees in the Ebro depression, the peninsular southwest quadrant and points of the North Plateau, as well as some areas of the Bay of Biscay, where summer will be brought forward again.

The hottest capitals will be Córdoba (39ºC); Granada, Jaen, Toledo and Zaragoza (38); Badajoz, Ciudad Real, Lleida and Seville (37), and Almería, Bilbao, Guadalajara, Logroño, Madrid, Ourense, Pamplona and Zamora (36). Instead, a milder environment is expected in A Coruña, Ceuta, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and Oviedo (24).

On the other hand, the sky will be sunny or will have some high clouds on the eastern side of the peninsula and the Balearic Islands, as well as medium and high cloudy intervals, and some daytime cloudiness in the rest of the peninsula.

In the afternoon showers and storms could appear in Galicia and the west of the Cantabrian area, without ruling out that they may be locally strong and produce hail. There is also the possibility of some isolated downpours in the east of the Cantabrian area, the surroundings of the Meseta and mountainous areas of the eastern peninsular third.

There is a possibility of morning fog in the interior of Galicia and Asturias, and coastal fog in the western Cantabrian Sea and the southern Alboran Sea. The arrival of the air mass of North African origin will cause haze on the Peninsula, less intense in the eastern third, due to the presence of dust in suspension.
