Musings and forecasts of Andalusian weather and climate, from a veteran meteorologist.

No, it's not the end of the Mayan calendar or something catastrophic. However...
A week of pleasant sun and moderate temperatures will come to an unceremonious end tonight across the region. A weak isolated low that's been malingering off the Atlantic Coast of Iberia will finally be pushed southeast over the peninsula beginning tonight. Although it will weaken further as it progresses, ample moisture again will generate significant rains tonight through most of the day tomorrow.
The upper jet streak associated with the low will extend unusually far south into Morocco. This leads me to believe that the southernmost areas will see the heaviest and longest-lasting precipitation. Those are the Costa de la Luz and Costa del Sol.
Look for gradual clearing on Sunday, so perhaps not the entire weekend will be a loss for the sun lovers.
