THE unseasonably warm weather we have been enjoying since the start of November is coming to an end, according to the weatherman, who predicts a drop in temperature and the risk of snow above 1'300 metres for the Balearics.
The weatherman reports that a cold front will enter Galicia this morning and spread throughout Spain during the day, reaching the Balearics and the Mediterranean early tomorrow.
Successive cold fronts will bring rain, cold, and even snow in some parts of the country, including the islands, according to the National Institute of Meteorology, which has drawn up a special weather report to cover the long break caused by the bank holidays tomorrow and on Friday.
Snow can be expected in the northern part of the country above 1'000 metres today, and it may snow in the Balearics tomorrow.
The cold front due to enter Galicia today will bring moderate and persistent rain and the occasional storm in the north west of the country.
The rain will spread, although will be less intense, over the rest of the country throughout the day, except for the east and the Balearics, where cloudy intervals can be expected. There will be a general drop in temperatures tomorrow, with snow above 1'000 and 1'300 metres in the north. Westerly winds will be moderate, with the occasional periods of strong gusts.
The cold front will reach the Mediterranean and the Balearics in the early hours of tomorrow morning, bringing with it rain which may occasionally be very heavy, in the Pyrenees, Catalonia and the Balearics.
The temperatures will continue to drop and snow is predicted above 1'300 metres in the Balearics tomorrow.
A new cold front will arrive on Thursday, bringing heavy rain in Galicia and light to moderate rain in most of the Peninsula. This cold front will move from west to east, reaching the Balearics on Friday. There will be no significant change in weather, and the risk of snow above 1'300 metres will continue.
A further drop in temperature is predicted for the weekend, with cloudy intervals.
The Canary Islands also face a cloudy weekend, with a drop in temperatures and moderate wind.
