The Aemet does not exclude morning fog in Asturias, northern Galicia, on the upper Ebro and in the area of ​​the strait. Probable haze in the Canary Islands without excluding it in Melilla. Maximum temperatures increase in the north-east of the northern plateau, the middle and upper Ebro, the interior of the Valencian Community and the center of the Canary Islands. Expected to exceed 40 degrees in the Guadalquivir and most of Extremadura, with few changes generally in the rest, with climbs predominating.

The Alisio winds will be dominant in the Canary Islands, with intervals of strong intensity in the inter-island channels. North-easterly wind in the northern half of Galicia, with intervals of strong intensity at its western end. Levant near Alborán, with strong intervals in the strait.
