A few clouds developing this afternoon

By: esteban9 , 8:57 AM GMT on April 03, 2010

A few middle and high clouds are streaming from the southwest across the Costa del Sol this morning. However, the principal intruder into our otherwise clear skies will come this afternoon, as a dying cold front enters from the northwest. This front is already weak, but is generating some showers across northern Portugal and Galicia. Its main effects will be to increase total cloud coverage (including some low clouds) across the eastern provinces from mid-afternoon through evening; I don't anticipate any rain with these clouds.

Northerly flow behind the front should keep temperatures slightly below normal tomorrow, despite more sunshine. More clouds arrive from the south tomorrow afternoon, associated with very weak low pressure in northwest Africa. But again, there will be no rain, and temperatures will increase during the early part of the week, with the southerly flow generated by this weak disturbance.

The dry spell will persist for at least another week. This will help me recover from my recent late nights attending Semana Santa processions!
