Perpignan: rain, snow, falling temperatures… Two “Iberian” cold drops will bring an inst weather – The Independent

From midday on Wednesday, regular and widespread rain will fall over the entire Pyrénées-Orientales department, carried by a cold drop positioned over Spain. An episode that should be repeated at the end of the week. It is from this Wednesday, April 20 that the weather will change again. Mild, moist air coming up from the Mediterranean could cause significant thunderstorms in the Pyrénées-Orientales department and southern Aude. This “Iberian” cold drop should cause between 60 mm and 90 mm of precipitation in the space of 24 hours, between Wednesday and Thursday. The mercury, meanwhile, is set to drop from this Easter weekend. Maximum temperatures should not exceed 15°C for the next two days. Closer to us, it is this first cold drop which will pass through Spain on Wednesday, generating heavy rains around the Mediterranean. The GFS model also digs a little deeper into this dep. of alt. at each run. Possible thunderstorms towards the Rhône Valley/Cévennes.— Nahel.B (@WxNB_) April 18, 2022 In the mountains, we expect between 10 and 15 cm of snow from 2000 meters above sea level, especially in the Andorra sector, 5 10 cm further north. Finally in the Pyrénées-Orientales, it should fall 20 cm on the Puigmal and Canigou massifs, 10 to 15 cm on the Capcir at 2000 meters. What if we had the first organized storm wave of the season? Broadly, a tempting situation with the approach of a dynamic Iberian cold drop -> south-westerly flow and destabilization to be expected in the warm air on Saturday? To be largely refined given the deadline.— Nahel.B (@WxNB_) April 18, 2022 A lull is however expected on Thursday with a slight north wind. But the return of wet and agitated weather is announced from Saturday. With an even more unstable situation. An upside-down France this week with #rains \ud83c\udf27\ufe0f and #freshness in the south and brighter \u2600\ufe0f and milder weather in the north! A situation linked to the circulation of depressions from the Atlantic to the Mediterranean while the pressures are higher in northern Europe.— La Chaîne Météo (@lachainemeteo) April 18, 2022 A new disturbance coming from the south should indeed affect the region this Saturday. On Sunday, the flow will switch to the west on the passage of a new upper cold drop. The day will be very gloomy in the south of the country, from the Pyrénées-Orientales to the Aude, with rain and still a little snow from the middle mountains. \ud83d\udd35What to expect this Tuesday? If the sun promises to be present (with a cloudy sky), rains will appear this morning in the Pyrenees and the south of Aquitaine, giving good accumulations, especially in the Pyr-Atlantiques. /oAkxOPa1eb
\ud83d\udcf7 Saint-Pabu (29) this morning.— Météo-France (@meteofrance) April 19, 2022 The beginning of next week will be calmer thanks to the arrival of an anticyclonic flow which will raise the mercury. But the weather could quickly become more unstable mid-week. This sequence of “cold drops” interspersed with a few fine days should continue in early May.

Two cold drops on Wednesday and Saturday and therefore successive disturbed passages.
The weather conditions will change with the arrival of a cold drop in Catalonia. It will generate many cloudy periods in the Hérault, probably accompanied by showers very locally of a stormy nature. The West wind will blow moderately.
