“Except in these areas, in the remainder will probably be a chilly day for the season, particularly within the northwest of the peninsula, with most temperatures between 5 and 10 levels decrease than anticipated for this time of yr. Cities equivalent to Oviedo, Lugo or León will barely be round 11 to 13 levels of most temperature,” summarized Del Campo.
