Weekend with afternoon showers and midsummer heat

Yesterday afternoon’s storms dumped heavily in many places and were often accompanied by strong gusts of wind and hail. In a short time, up to 47 liters accumulated in Sant Romà d’Abella or 46 in Planoles and more than 20 fell in Viladecans, Castellnou de Bages, Roda de Ter, La Panadella or La Pobla de Segur. It will rain again this Saturday afternoon, but the downpours will not be as extensive or as intense as yesterday’s. They will basically affect the northern third of the country, although towards the end it may also drop some short-term showers in Vallès Oriental or La Selva.

Very welcome rain on a Saturday with many hours of clear skies. From mid-morning clouds will begin to grow in the Pyrenees, but in the rest of the country the sun will prevail during the first half of the day and will favor the fact that the afternoon will be very warm again, with strong heat near the sea and with maximums that will climb above 35 °C in sectors of the Lleida plan, Central Catalonia, the Empordà and the Girona plan. Where it rains the thermometer will suddenly drop 10 or 12 degrees, but in the counties of the southern half of the country the afternoon will remain sunny and hot.

This dynamic will continue on Sunday, with a sunny morning but a more uncertain and variable afternoon. Tomorrow the showers will again be more likely in the Pyrenees and the Pre-Pyrenees, but it will also end up raining in the interior regions of Tarragona or Central Catalonia. It will hardly rain on the coastal front and Sunday will be spent again with heat and scorching heat. The morning will be less cool than today and by midday most thermometers will be between 32 and 36°C.

And next week it doesn’t seem like the mercury wants to retreat. There will be a small rise in temperatures heading into Wednesday, but right now it looks like the highest temperatures will be reached heading into the weekend, when some highs will again touch 40C in the hottest parts of the country. Therefore, everything suggests that we will spend the first half of August without reaching exceptional temperatures but with a remarkable persistence of values ​​3 or 4 degrees higher than would be normal in these summer days. As for the state of the sky, the latest update of the weather maps confirms that there will be no rain anywhere on Monday, but it hints that the showers could return to Central Catalonia on Tuesday afternoon and that Thursday afternoon storms would return to irrigate the northern third of the country.
