Warm, dry conditions will persist across most of Spain next week and into the Christmas holiday.
High pressure will remain in control across the country, leading to mostly sunny to partly sunny skies on Monday and Tuesday.
Clouds, however, will increase across northwestern Spain on Tuesday as a cold front delivers showers later in the day into Wednesday.
The front will weaken as it moves eastward during the week, allowing dry weather to dominate central and eastern Spain on Christmas Eve.
Another front will follow behind, bringing showers to northwestern Spain again on Christmas Day.
Temperatures will remain above normal across much of the country next week.
The passage of the cold front will cause temperatures to be higher across southern Spain and lower in the Northwest.
In the Andalusia region, temperatures in Seville will settle near 19-21 C (66-70 F).
In Catalonia, daytime temperatures in Barcelona will be near 15-16 C (59-61 F). Madrid and nearby areas will experience similar highs.
Following the holiday, a storm could impact much of the country during the weekend.
