Meteorological instability will begin to be felt especially on the coast of the provinces of Alicante and Valencia, where strong downpours are expected to occur. The warning issued by AEMET estimates that locally very heavy rainfall could be recorded with up to 20mm of accumulated water in one hour. In addition, these downpours may be accompanied by thunderstorms, strong gusts of wind, and lightning. The worst is expected to start tonight.
Although today the sky is expected to be overcast or partly cloudy throughout the Valencian Community, AEMET estimates that the situation will begin to change tonight when a stormy mass enters from the Mediterranean to unleash itself over the regions of Ribera, La Safor, and La Marina. This same instability will also affect the Balearic archipelago, especially the island of Ibiza and the northern part of Mallorca.
The yellow alert for heavy rain will come into effect tonight at 00:00 hours and will end, barring changes in the weather, tomorrow at noon.
The worst is expected for the coastal regions of the provinces of Alicante and Valencia.
Weather in Valencia for the week and weekend
The forecast made by the Spanish Meteorological Agency (AEMET) agrees with that made by Mario Picazo. Starting today, the skies will begin to partially cloud over with average temperatures until Thursday when the effects of the storm will start to be felt. It will be then when the much-awaited rain may make an appearance in the city, especially on Thursday, Friday, and Sunday.
Throughout the Valencian Community, the forecast is similar to the expected weather in Valencia. Rainfall and atmospheric instability will affect the entire region, but especially the southern part of the Valencian Community and the province of Alicante. In fact, strong storms are expected in certain areas such as Alcoi and the regions between the province of Valencia and Alicante. The bulk of the rainfall will concentrate in Murcia, parts of Castilla-La Mancha, and especially Andalucia.
