The minimums will be variable depending on the location, with inland and northern regions that may drop up to one degree. In the afternoon, temperatures will remain in a similar range, but clouds will be seen along the entire coast, especially on the central coast. Rain will not appear, although the Meteorological Service announces some weak precipitation due to fog in the Ponent and the Ebro valley.

Colder Saturday
