Casi seguro: no lloverá en el Chupinazo

El tiempo es increíblemente difícil de predecir, cambia cual veleta en huracán y parece que el de Pamplona no queda lejos. Unos días nos dicen que puede que llueva en el chupinazo y otros que no. Pero a poco más de 48 horas para que empiece la fiesta, podemos asegurar que no lloverá. 

La temperatura durante el día estará entre 17 grados de máxima y 29 de mínima, y a la hora en la que se lance el cohete estará en torno a los 22 grados. Las posibilidades de que caiga agua se situan en ¡0%!. Soplará vientecillo norte de 11 kms/h.
