The rollercoaster ride of the Spanish weather takes another turn as Storm Pierrick causes a significant drop in temperatures across the peninsula and the Balearics. This precedes an ‘exceptionally high temperature’ event forecasted by Spain’s Aemet weather service. The warm spell, arriving first in the Canary Islands, will see temperatures soar well above the season’s average, influenced by a dry, warm air mass from Africa. With temperatures potentially peaking at 34ºC in some areas during the weekend, this unusual weather event is attributed to suspended dust particles – a phenomenon known as ‘calima’. The effect on the Canary Islands will be immediate, with temperatures on Wednesday expected to feel more summer-like. The rest of Spain will experience the warm front from Thursday onwards, with the effects lasting until at least Sunday. Aemet warns of temperatures being 5ºC to 12ºC above average, suggesting a significant impact on residents and visitors alike.
