High pressure has declined to such an extent that turbulence will be able to penetrate into our region. These disturbances are going to be so weak, however, that they will bring some clouds and only a few showers.
Little change is expected for the next fews days, but the weekend offers some hope: it looks as if the Azores High accompanied by plenty of sunshine and rising temperatures will move into our region!
