- Valencian Community: A DANA threatens the Valencian Community and the Balearic Islands again with heavy rains
Thirteen provinces in the east of the Peninsula and the Balearic Islands will have this Tuesday warning of risk due to rain, storms, winds or coastal phenomena , caused by a new DANA, which in the case of Catalonia, Castellón and the Balearic Islands the risk will be of an important nature (orange warning ), according to the State Meteorological Agency ( AEMET ), which states that in these areas the rains may be torrential.
Thus, the orange warning will affect the provinces of Barcelona, Tarragona, Lleida, Gerona, where they can accumulate from 60 to 80 liters per square meter in one hour and about 150 to 170 liters per square meter in 12 hours. In the Girona area of the Ampurdán and the Pyrenees the warning has risen to red due to rainfall that could reach 180 liters per square meter in twelve hours.
Important risk notices are also activated in Castellón , where in 12 hours it is planned to add an amount of more than 100 liters per square meter; and in the Balearic Islands , where they can accumulate from 40 to 60 liters per square meter in one hour and about 100 liters in 12 hours.
With yellow warning (risk) tomorrow will also be Huesca, Zaragoza, Teruel, Valencia, Alicante, Murcia and Albacete, where the rains will exceed 15 or 20 liters per square meter in one hour.
In addition, they will have orange warning for storms in Barcelona, Girona, Tarragona, Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera and yellow warning in Lleida, Zaragoza and Teruel.
Also in this area they will have yellow warning due to strong winds that will blow with a speed of up to 80 kilometers per hour in Huesca, Barcelona, Tarragona, Lleida, Gerona, Castellón, Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera.
Likewise, the strong swell has caused the AEMET to warn Barcelona of significant risk, where the northeast wind with force 7 to 8 will cause waves of 3 meters; and by risk (yellow notice) to Gerona, Tarragona, Castellón, Alicante, Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera, where winds from north or northeast will also blow with force 7 and wave from two to three meters high.
The risk is due to the arrival of an Isolated Depression in High Levels (DANA) from the night of Monday that will be located on the southwest of the Peninsula and from there it will then move to the Mediterranean area.
This will be accompanied at low levels, by a process of cyclogenesis , by the development of low surface pressures that will begin in northern Algeria and low pressures will extend between Tuesday and Wednesday through the western Mediterranean to the northeast of the Peninsula and then to the eastern Cantabrian.
As a consequence of the described evolution, locally strong and persistent rainfall is expected in large areas of the peninsular eastern third and the Balearic Islands. The AEMET is likely that on Tuesday the rains are torrential at various points in the Catalan coastal provinces and less likely in the north of the Valencian Community.
The greatest instability will be concentrated in the Mediterranean area, where the showers and storms will be strong or very strong and persistent in the eastern peninsula and in the Balearic Islands.
In addition, locally strong storms can also affect other areas of the eastern peninsular third. The rains and showers will extend during the day to other areas of the Peninsula, although with less probability and intensity the further to the west.
In the extreme west no rainfall is expected , while in the Canary Islands some weak rains in the north of the islands are not ruled out.
The snow will appear from 1,600 and 2,000 meters in the mountain systems and will rise in the Pyrenees during the day.
Daytime temperatures will rise in the Balearic Islands and at the northwest and northeast ends of the peninsula and the rise will be locally noticeable in the Balearic Islands.
In the rest of the eastern half they will descend and little change is expected in the rest.
Finally, the AEMET indicates that the winds will blow from east and north in the eastern peninsular, Pyrenees and Balearic Islands, and from the west in the Alboran coast. They will be strong or with strong intervals in coastal and mountain areas and the northern component will predominate in the rest of the country.
