Hola from sunny…cloudy Spain. A day of cloud and showers for me, a week of rain, showers and wind for you.

Thanks to Sue for the photograph.

So the general picture sees the Atlantic in control, though still a warm source of air.

Today will be mostly cloudy with bits and pieces of rain at times. Some occasional brightness, especially later in the day when it should be dry most of the time. Windy, and around 18’C. A fairly cloudy and warm night, windy too, no lower than 16’C with the odd bit of showery light-ish rain around.

Wednesday starts fairly cloudy, a few bright spells possible, the odd shower too. A band of heavy rain will arrive around 11am, give or take, and bring at least 5-6 hours of mostly heavy rain, perhaps very heavy, some notably strong gusts of wind too. 19’C before the rain arrives, 16’C during – and a bit humid. Further pulses of heavy rain may spread up from the south/south-west into the evening – though eventually it will clear east. Skies will clear, winds become light and temperatures drop to around 9’C.

Low pressure still close by for Thursday but we start with sunny spells – perhaps hazy at first with any hangover from the night before’s rain. Heavy showers will developing during the morning, you may miss them but more likely you get a few, perhaps with hail and/or thunder mixed in, some very heavy downpours possible too. Around 17’C and feeling fresher. Variable cloud overnight, some showers possible, down to around 10’C.

Friday starts with sunny spells, but cloud will bubble up with showers breaking out. More likely you get at least a couple of showers – some heavy, but perhaps you miss them. Around 16’C and breezy. Mostly clear skies overnight and chilly, down to around 7’C.

Saturday is a reasonable day as high pressure starts to build once more. Sunny spells for the morning, more in the way of cloud for the afternoon but pleasant enough. Around 16’C. Cloudier overnight, perhaps a bit of showery rain, around 12’C.

By Sunday, we see an ex-hurricane merging with low pressure to our west, helping to drive warmer air once more our way.

Some uncertainty on conditions for Sunday – it will depend on where the weather front is. At worst, cloudy with bits of showery rain, at best hazy sunshine – either way, warm and a bit humid – between 18’C and 22’C depending on sunshine amounts.

Next week starts warm/very warm – probably sunny, though I wouldn’t rule out a weather front being in the mix at some point.

    1. Where in Spain are you? I’m in Gandia…looks like we have rain this afternoon so we’ll be finding something indoors to do! And pubs are indoors 😉 x

  1. I’m in Los Alcazares it looks like it’s starting to brighten up a bit so I’m off for a walk. Fingers crossed I stay dry! Enjoy your break James x
