A storm of wind, waves and rain will affect almost all of Spain


Madrid (EFE).- The passage of successive storms and Atlantic frontal systems will give rise to a rainstorm in the coming days, very strong winds -up to 90 kilometers per hour- and bad sea conditions, with waves that can reach up to 8 meters, in large areas of the peninsula and the Balearic Islands.

The most relevant aspect of this situation, which begins tomorrow and will last until Wednesday, will be the wind and the state of the sea, underlined the Aemet (National Meteorological Agency), which advances that gusts of wind ” strong or strong “are expected very strong tomorrow” (60-70 km/h) in a good part of the Peninsula and in the Balearic Islands, more intense (70-90 km/h) in the high zones, the Cantabrian coast and in the Mediterranean area.

During Tuesday, there will be a gradual decrease in wind intensity, although strong or very strong gusts will still be likely, but more locally and punctually, until Wednesday noon.

The sea state will worsen on the high seas and in the coastal areas, and so, in Galicia and in the Cantabrian region, waves are likely to reach 5-6 meters on Monday and Tuesday, increasing to 6-7 meters and even, at dawn on Tuesday, at 7-8 meters on the eastern coast of Cantabria.

On the Mediterranean coasts the waves will reach 2 to 4 meters and can reach 5 meters on the island of Menorca.
Regarding precipitation, for Monday and Tuesday “widespread rain” is expected in a good part of the country, less probable and intense in the south-east of the peninsula.

In the following days, the rains will continue to affect the northwestern half of the peninsula and will be unlikely in the south and the Mediterranean area; overnight Monday to Tuesday, the snow level will drop to around 1,300 meters, and some 20 centimeters of snow could accumulate in the central Pyrenees.
