Spain is currently under the influence of an Atlantic front that has taken center stage in the peninsular climate. The State Meteorological Agency (AEMET) has reported that this phenomenon is causing notable cloudiness, with notable rainfall that extends across most of the country, being more intense in the western and central areas of the peninsula.
Today, September 17, the storm, located in the northwest of the peninsula, along with its associated fronts, is on the move, expanding its effect on the national territory. From the early hours of the morning, showers are expected, which in some points, such as the northwest quadrant, the center, the southeast and the Pyrenees, could be accompanied by storms. This storm activity is so relevant that the yellow alert has been activated in Galicia, given the prospect of potentially heavy showers and rain, especially during the afternoon.
The day will not only be marked by rain. Regarding temperatures, the contrast is notable. In the east of the peninsula, an increase is expected, with Valencia predicting 29 degrees and Girona 31. However, in the west, the maximums will be more moderate, with León registering 19 degrees and Huelva 24. The minimums, for their part, will range between 15 degrees in Pontevedra and 18 in Seville.
Beyond this weekend, Rubén del Campo, spokesperson for the AEMET, has anticipated what next week will be like. Precipitation is expected in both the north and west of the country, although with a tendency to stabilize as the days progress. Some southern areas could also see rainfall. Regarding temperatures, Del Campo has indicated that, despite some ups and downs, they will remain at typical values for the season.
This Atlantic front, with its rains and stormy showers, some even with hail, is marking a clear entry into autumn, putting an end to the summer atmosphere that has predominated until now.
