Another Semana Santa washout?

Just a brief note for everyone looking to attend Semana Santa activities this week.

The current low pressure system bringing showers mainly to western Andalucía is very weak. However, it is nearly stationary and it appears that it will cause showers all week. The risk of showers will be greater in the afternoons, as the ground heats and convective clouds form. All this activity continues to appear weak, however, until Thursday - Friday. At that time, a reinforcement of the upper low drops southwest from the British Isles, bringing with it the threat of heavier and steadier rain. If this comes about, the big day of Good Friday might be at risk of cancellation, as was the case last year.

On the other hand, the rain is sorely needed after a record dry winter. So, take your preference and stay tuned for updates this week.
