Summer Warmth For Spanish Costas, Stormy Easter Monday Ahead For S Britain/N France

The current depression (still forming) over the British Isles is delivering gusty winds and bursts of heavy rain across Ireland and the UK is bringing summer-like warmth to Spain’s south and east coasts.

Strong southwest winds blowing across Iberia ahead of the cold front is downsloping, compressing and warming on approach the the Med coast, AKA terral winds which has brought temperatures as high as 28C to Valencia yesterday.

Prepare for road, rail, sea and air travel as to be affected Monday!

Monday’s system (Katie) sweeps through and lifts into the North Sea followed by another low Tuesday. However the GFS has a low crossing the UK Wednesday with a southward push of cold, late season arctic air following and this marks a settling down of the pattern through the 2nd half of next week.

There’s increasing agreement in the medium term of the return to a blocky, possibly cooler period ending March and through at least the first week of April.

GFS ensemble 5-day means.
