The rain, strong waves and strong gusts of wind They put seven communities on alert this Monday, with special incidence in the north of the peninsula, where the gusts can reach over 100 kilometers per hour, informs the State Meteorological Agency (AEMET) on its website.
On the Cantabrian coast, Asturias and Cantabria keep the orange alert (significant risk) due to maximum gusts of wind that will rise up to 110 kilometers per hour in points of the mountain range and Picos de Europa, and in Liébana respectively.
Galicia It has an orange warning for adverse coastal phenomena with south wind and force 8, and a yellow alert (risk) for wind between 70 and 90 kilometers per hour and for rains throughout the community, except Lugo, which will leave 50 liters per square meter in 12 hours.
Estremadura has activated the yellow warning in the north of the province of Cáceres due to rainfall that will accumulate up to 70 liters per square meter in 12 hours; Aemet advises that 100 liters per square meter can be exceeded until next Wednesday.
The communities of Andalusia Y Navarra are on yellow alert for wind or swell, while in Castile and Leon there is a yellow warning for wind and rain in the provinces of Salamanca Y Zamora, where between 60 and 70 liters per square meter will accumulate in 12 hours.
Aemet adds that the Atlantic front that will enter the Peninsula will evolve rapidly and will generate, already on Tuesday, the storm ‘Bárbara’. In an informative note, the Agency recalls that, at the moment, in the eastern Atlantic, west of the Iberian Peninsula, a wide area of low pressure has formed that will probably continue until next Thursday.
The evolution of the low pressure centers in this area will lead to the formation of fronts in the coming days and the intensification of the wind that will affect the Peninsula and will bring mild temperatures and humidity.
The storm will cross the western peninsula between noon on Tuesday and early on Wednesday, will leave abundant and intense rains that will reach almost the entire Peninsula, although to a greater extent they will occur in the western half and mountain areas exposed to the southern component winds.
The Wednesday and Thursday, new Atlantic fronts will continue to produce rains, more likely and intense in the Atlantic and Cantabrian slopes and, on the contrary, less likely in the Mediterranean area.
The wind, another protagonist of these days, will blow with very strong streaks, higher than 70 km / h, in large areas of the peninsula, especially from noon on Tuesday, which will be more intense in mountain areas where locally they may exceed 110-120 km / h.
Again the Mediterranean area will be left out of this situation, says the Aemet. It is also expected that, although to a lesser extent, the Canary archipelago, mainly the western islands, is affected Tuesday through the passage of the Atlantic front associated with the storm ‘Bárbara’, with rainfall and very strong gusts of wind from the southwest. The Aemet believes that the front will move away towards France and England on Wednesday and that, as of Friday, it will progressively decrease.
