The state meteorological agency, Aemet, has issued a yellow alert for the Valencian community
Just when it seemed like it was time to put away the heavy coats and start pulling out the lighter jackets due to the mild temperatures that have been recorded in recent days, a new storm front will enter the Valencian Community this Monday, February 27. Aemet has predicted a significant drop in temperatures in Valencia.
This new weather event, named Juliette, will bring cold temperatures to many areas of the territory and will put up to 30 provinces in 12 communities on alert for cold weather. Among them are Valencia and Castelló, for which the State Meteorological Agency has activated a yellow alert. In the case of Castelló, the alert is also activated for high winds, which could cause some problems and possible coastal phenomena.
Juliette will bring a very cold air mass of Arctic origin that will enter through the northeastern peninsula, causing a significant drop in daytime temperatures. Although its effects were already noticed in some areas late yesterday Sunday, it will not be until today Monday when its effects become palpable.

Explainer: coastal phenomena
Coastal phenomena refer to any changes or events that occur along a coastline or nearshore area, typically as a result of weather or oceanographic processes. These can include things like coastal flooding, beach erosion, wave surges, and storm surges. Coastal phenomena can be caused by various factors such as strong winds, ocean currents, tidal fluctuations, or changes in sea level.
These phenomena can have significant impacts on coastal communities, causing property damage, disruption of transportation and commerce, and endangering human lives. As a result, it is important for coastal communities to be aware of the risks and take appropriate measures to protect themselves and their property.
This can include developing emergency plans, building sea walls or other protective structures, and monitoring weather and oceanographic conditions to anticipate and respond to coastal phenomena.
