A dozen provinces on snow alert, storms, wind, rain and waves

Snow, storms, wind, rain and waves will put this Friday at risk at a dozen provinces in a day marked by locally strong rainfall in Catalan and Valencian coastline and, accompanied by storms, in Baleares, as well as strong wind intervals in ampurdan and Balearic Islands, and snowfalls in the Western Cantabrian, according to the prediction of the State Meteorology Agency (AEMET).

Specifically, Asturias, Burgos, León and Palencia will be at risk by snow while Ibiza and Formentera will activate their announcements by rain and storms. Asturias, Navarra, Vizcaya, Alicante and Valencia will also be at risk but only by rainfall and Girona will be at risk by wind and waves, in this last important case.

This Friday an Atlantic anticyclone is expected to exercise its influence on a large part of the peninsula, with a flow of northern component that will produce some rains and chubascos at the extreme North Peninsular and Alto Ebro, with a tendency to forward throughout the day. They will be weak in general, except in the Cantabrian mountain range, where they can be intense.

In the case of Balearic Islands, Melilla and coastline of the Gulf of Valencia and the peninsular southeast, chubascos and storms are expected, which may be locally strong in Catalan and Valencian coastlines and in Balearic Islands. In the rest of the peninsula, little cloudy skies will predominate, although with some cloudy intervals in areas of this peninsular, and with low clouds in mountainous areas of the northern half.

In the Canary Islands, the heavens will be cloud, with weak precipitations in the north of the most relief islands, without being discarded by the Orientals.

The level of snow will be in Pyrenees between 1,000 and 1,200 meters, falling to 900 / 1,000 meters, while in the west of the Cantabrian Mountain Range and the North of the Iberian System, between 1,000 and 1,400 meters.

Fogs are expected in mountainous areas of the center and north peninsular, which will be locally persistent at the north end.

Diurnal temperatures will go down in Pyrenees and Canary Islands, without major changes in the rest of the country, with weak frosts in mountainous environments, as well as páramo de la norte plateau, which will be more intense in Pyrenees.

The wind will be of northern component in the peninsula and the Balearic Islands, with strong Tramontana in Ampurdán and Balearic Islands, as well as strong rachas in Under Ebro; Variable in Alborin and Alisio in Canarias.
