Isolated showers in central and northern counties

Pretty cool morning. Tonight, more than half of the stations we track have dropped below 10 degrees. The average minimum temperature in Catalonia was 8 degrees, a very normal value for the time. Today’s highs will be a little higher than yesterday, the change will be noticeable especially in Terres de l’Ebre and Camp de Tarragona, where the entrance of the mestral will encourage the thermometer to climb two or three degrees more than yesterday. After a very hot final stretch of April, May has started with even a little low temperatures for the season.

Today it will be more sunny, but we must still take into account the possibility of isolated showers in the central hours of the day, showers that will focus mainly on coastal and pre-coastal regions and sectors of Central Catalonia. Unlike yesterday, the storms will not be the protagonists in the Pyrenees and Pre-Pyrenees, but, on the other hand, short but intense showers will escape between the Penedès and the Vallès, around Barcelona or in counties such as Bages or Moianès.

Yesterday the storms accumulated 19 l / m² in the Vall de Bianya, 17 in Montsec, 15 in Sant Pau de Segúries, 12 in Solsona, 11 in Cardona, 7 in Les Borges Blanques and 6 in Ripoll in Olot and Tàrrega. The heaviest rains again affected the Valencian Country, where 71 l / m² accumulated in Polinyà de Júcar, 49 in Barx, 45 in Alcoy and 41 in Elche and Xàtiva. In the Balearic Islands, 7 l / m² fell in Formentera and 4 in Ibiza.

Tomorrow the sun will also predominate and there will be only very occasional showers on the northern slope of the Pyrenees. In the afternoon, the clouds will increase on the Costa Brava and in Menorca, where there could be some drops in the evening. The wind will be one of the protagonists of today and tomorrow in these sectors. Today there will be a northerly wind with a light gregarious component, which will make the wind feel even south of the Costa Brava. Wind gusts will easily exceed 50 km / h in the Empordà and the Balearic Islands. Tomorrow the north wind will continue to blow, but it will not be so noticeable in the Pitiüses or in Mallorca. In these sectors the wind will make the thermal sensation lower than the thermometer.

The weekend will also be more sunny than cloudy. On Sunday afternoon, there may be showers in some parts of the Eastern Pyrenees and the Pre-Pyrenees. There is still some uncertainty in the forecast, but most likely they will not be very extensive storms. It will be hotter on Saturday and Sunday, although the rise in temperature will be much more noticeable in parts of the Pyrenees and inland counties than on the coast. There will be some highs of more than 25 degrees again, but surely the heat will not be as intense as at other times in recent weeks.

In the long run, the central part of May is likely to be marked by higher temperatures than would be expected for the season, but a markedly hot summer situation is not likely, but rather the temperature will tend. to go up quite progressively. It is possible that between Monday and Tuesday the afternoon storms will also increase in the Pyrenees, but a situation of very extensive showers is unlikely.
