High winds will batter whole of Spain this week
By:

WEATHER warnings have been issued for 46 provinces across Spain including the south, east and centre, and the Balearic Islands.

This week has started off with gales reaching from 90 to 100 kilometres per hour, which are likely to ccontinue for several days.

Tidal surges are expected along some of Spain's coastal areas, especially the northern strip – Galicia, Asturias, Cantabria and the Basque Country – and also all the of the Balearic Islands and most of coastal Catalunya (Barcelona, Girona and Tarragona provinces).

'Yellow warnings', meaning 'proceed with caution', have been issued by the State meteorological agency, AEMET, for the provinces of Granada, Castellón and Murcia and the island of Mallorca, whilst gales of around 90 kilometres per hour (56mph) will blight the first half of this week in the rest of Andalucía, parts of Castilla-La Mancha in central Spain (the province of Albacete, Cuenca, Guadalajara and Toledo), the centre-northern region of Castilla y León (the provinces of Zamora, Segovia, Palencia and Valladolid), Badajoz in the western region of Extremadura, the region of Navarra, the Basque Country and the whole of the Comunidad Valenciana on the east coast.

Gusts will reach at least 100 kilometres per hour (63mph) in the provinces of Teruel, in Aragón; Burgos and Soria, in Castilla y León, and the region of La Rioja.

Most of the country, except for isolated areas of the north and central mainland, will escape the rain, but those which do suffer it this week will find it could be torrential.

The northern strip and south-western Andalucía are the most prone to heavy showers over the next few days, but any rain will be more moderate over the south-east and Balearics.

Temperatures overnight are expected to fall in most of the country, except for the Canary Islands where cloudless skies and a mild climate will continue for the rest of the week at least.

High winds could lead to disruption in air and sea traffic, with delays in the former caused by possible longer times needing to land, affecting turnover and takeoff slots.

Where gales are particularly strong, residents are advised to avoid going out or driving where they can, to secure patio furniture and not to walk too close to trees or buildings in case of falling objects.
