April temperatures to end the year



After a week of rains in much of Spain, the year says goodbye with the sky practically clear and spring temperatures. In large areas of the peninsula the thermometers will reach 20 degrees and may even be exceeded in areas of the Valencian Community, Region of Murcia and Andalusia.

«We probably have in Spain daytime temperatures more typical of full spring, the month of April or even the beginning of May “, ruled out the spokesman for the State Meteorological Agency (Aemet), Rubén del Campo.

However, high pressures will also cause the phenomenon of thermal inversion to appear in some areas, which is that temperatures will be lower in valley bottoms than in higher areas.

Thermal inversions, when they occur in winter, give rise to fog banks indoors which may be persistent and in those areas the environment will be fresh and even cold.

This Thursday, December 30 stability will settle completely with the presence of high subtropical pressures, although it will still continue to rain in western Galicia. In the rest, slightly cloudy skies and no rain are expected, although the atmospheric stability will favor the appearance of extensive fog banks in much of the interior. The fogs will be persistent on the plateaus and in the Ebro basin and in those areas the temperatures will be cool.

The spokesperson indicates that “out of there”, daytime temperatures will rise, while nighttime temperatures will drop. In other words, the thermal amplitude will increase but foresees “few frosts” at night. During the central hours of the day, it will reach 18ºC or more in Galicia, in the surroundings of the Central system, in cities such as Ávila or Segovia and even in some valleys of the Pyrenees it will exceed 20ºC, as in a good part of the Cantabrian, the Mediterranean area from the southern third of the peninsula and the Balearic Islands.

Specifically, he insisted that this Thursday thermometers should be between 5 and 10ºC above normal in most of the Peninsula except areas where the fogs persist. “They may even be between 10 and 15ºC above normal in mountain areas,” he pointed out.

With this spring time on December 31, New Year’s Eve will be marked by stable weather, no rain “Practically anywhere in the country” and with persistent fogs in the Duero and Ebro valleys.

Minimum temperatures will drop “slightly” but the highs will rise again and will lead to an “abnormally warm” day for the time of year in the central hours of the day, with values ​​between ten and fifteen degrees above normal in large areas of the eastern peninsula, although again the environment will be cool in areas where fog persists.

Finally, he has advanced that the first morning of 2022 will not be “especially cold” compared to usual, with hardly any frosts except for points on the northern plateau. On New Year’s Eve the mercury will be between 5 and 10ºC above normal due to the phenomenon of thermal inversion except in the highest areas, but cooler and close to normal in the Duero del Ebro del Tajo basins, in Madrid and in the Guadalquivir valley.

New Year’s Day will be a day with slightly cloudy skies and a warm atmosphere, again with temperatures between 5 and 10 degrees above normal, except in areas where the fog continues, in the Douro and Ebro valleys.

Starting Sunday, January 2, may pass some fronts to the extreme northwest of the Peninsula, but the anticyclonic environment will prevail again in the rest of Spain, with possible fog banks and temperatures that will drop and will give way to an increase in frosts both in the northern plateau and in other parts of the interior.

Regarding the Canary Islands, it is expected that this whole week will have stable weather, with generally slightly cloudy skies and rising temperatures, which, as in the Peninsula, will be higher than usual and also foresees suspended dust that could give place to haze.
