Some chinks in the fair weather armour, but it's still protecting the region

A cloud band is draped from north to south across central Spain this morning, and it is triggering a few light showers in Eastern Malaga and western Granada provinces. This band is moving to the east and precipitation should decrease to very isolated coverage this afternoon. However, it looks like clouds will increase through the weekend, even if they are mostly at middle and high levels today and tomorrow.

The models continue to ward off significant rain from the area until late Saturday, and the Murcia sounding shows a mostly dry atmosphere now. However, with continuing strong southerly winds, moisture will increase at low levels and I expect to see scattered showers tomorrow across Andalucia. These winds will also maintain slightly-above-average warmth today and tomorrow.

It appears that after the brief bout with rain this weekend, high pressure returns, along with fair weather for the early part of next week.
