Said pocket of cold air is expressed on the surface in the form of downpours and snow in the highest areas of the Canary Islands, which will tend to withdraw by the end of the week. On the other hand, the rainfall and the lift will decrease in the final stretch of the week in the Strait area, in Andalusia and in points in the southeast of the peninsula.
