Precipitation exceeds normal values ​​in the western and interior half of the peninsula, the Basque Country and Navarra and the western half of the Pyrenees along with the north of Aragon, except for a strip that runs through Asturias and Cantabria and the southern and eastern halves of Andalusia.

On the other hand, the accumulated quantities are below their normal values ​​in the eastern third together, in the areas mentioned above and the two archipelagos.

Especially low values ​​are recorded in the eastern part of the peninsula that goes from Almería to the Ebro delta.
