With the beginning of the second half of May, the State Meteorological Agency (Aemet) has warned of the arrival of an Isolated Depression at High Levels (DANA) that will cause instability and storms in eleven provinces of the Peninsula this Sunday. The affected areas, already hit by rain in the first half of the month, include Navarra, La Rioja, Lleida, Tarragona, Ávila, Burgos, Segovia, Soria, Huesca, Teruel and Zaragoza.

This meteorological phenomenon, which breaks with the summer temperatures experienced at the beginning of May, will bring with it a situation of instability, with cloudy skies or with intervals throughout the day. Scattered rainfall is expected in the north in the early hours of the day, with locally heavy showers in areas near the Pyrenees, where light frosts are also expected, according to the Aemet.

The storms will gain intensity on Sunday afternoon, especially in the east of Castilla y León, the Central and Iberian systems, northern Aragon and western Catalonia. The Balearic archipelago will also see an increase in cloudiness, while in the Canary Islands cloudy skies are expected with probable precipitation, especially on the islands with greater relief.

In terms of temperatures, an increase in maximum temperatures is expected in the northwest of the peninsula and a decrease in the eastern third, while minimum temperatures will rise in much of the Peninsula and fall in the midlands of the Canary Islands. For example, the cities of Seville and Córdoba will maintain maximum temperatures close to 30°C, contrasting with minimum temperatures of 5°C in Castilian-Leonese cities.

This change in weather will also bring with it an adjustment in the winds, with the north and east component predominating in the east of the peninsula and in the Balearic Islands, and the north and west component in the rest of the Peninsula. Trade winds will be the norm in the Canary Islands, with strong intervals in the Strait and Alborán. In addition, the snow level will be between 1,800 and 2,000 meters in the north of the peninsula.
