In principle, the sky will not be completely covered, but the clouds that will appear on the horizon, despite not being excessive, could leave rain on the falleras and falleros that at that time will come to make their offering of flowers to the Mare de Deu.

The threat of precipitation It will be present from two in the afternoon until eight, approximately, with a peak moment: seven in the afternoon, when the sky is expected to close more and even become covered. In any case, the State Meteorological Agency considers that, in the event that water falls, it will be light precipitations or little rain that, although it would not discharge with the force of these past days, it would detract from a parade that the Fallas world leads waiting for a year and a half.

Either way, whether the rain falls or not, this first afternoon of Offering will be very different from those experienced in the traditional Fallas in March, especially because of the heat. If in March the usual thing is to worry not only about the rain, but also about the cold, this afternoon the falleras will have to do a effort to bear the embarrassment, since the ambient humidity is expected to be quite high and the thermal sensation to be higher than the actual temperature. In fact, the forecast estimates that the heat will feel like 30 degrees in the shade for much of the afternoon.
