Wind, rain and falling temperatures for Three Kings public holiday
A WET bank holiday weekend is on the cards across the whole of mainland Spain and the Balearic Islands, according to the met office.
Coming in from the north-west from today (Sunday, January 3) across the Atlantic, persistent rain will spread across the country until Wednesday, January 6, which is a national public holiday for the Epiphany and Three Kings celebrations.
Frequent and heavy showers will be experienced in the north and centre of the mainland, but will be much lighter by the time they reach the east and south-east, hitting the Mediterranean area last of all.
Most of the country will be suffering from ongoing rain on Monday, January 4.
Snow is likely to fall at altitudes of between 1,100 and 2,000 metres above sea-level, and down to 800 metres by the end of Monday through to Wednesday.
High winds are likely across the north and north-west, especially on the coasts, and could spread across the whole of the mainland and Balearic Islands by Tuesday.
Temperatures will go down in the daytime across the country, but increase overnight – except in inland parts where the thermometer will drop below freezing at night.
Only the Canary Islands will escape the cold, wind and rain this week.
