Galicia will today be on a red alert (extreme risk) due to coastal phenomena and yellow due to snow, like Aragon, Castilla y León and Asturias due to the entry of the squall Dora, which will mark the time of the December bridge, according to the State Meteorological Agency (Aemet).
Much of the Peninsula and the City of Melilla will be affected by snow, wind, coastal phenomena and the drop in temperature. Aragón, Castilla y León, Navarra, La Rioja and Asturias will be on a yellow warning due to snowfalls, which will also have it due to coastal phenomena like Cantabria and the Basque Country, while in Andalusia it will be due to coastal phenomena and wind. Due to wind they are on alert in Andalusia, Cantabria, Murcia, the Basque Country and the City of Melilla, while in Castilla-La Mancha, Catalonia and the Community of Madrid they will also be on yellow alert due to low temperatures.
The presence of the storm Dora in the surroundings of the British Isles will continue causing cloudy or overcast skies in Galicia, Cantabrian Sea and northern Navarra, with rainfall and some occasional storms, which could be locally strong or persistent on the coastlines. The cloudiness and rainfall may spread, in a weaker and more dispersed way, to other areas of the Northern plateau, the upper Ebro, the Central system, the Iberian and the Pyrenees. Little cloudy in the peninsular Mediterranean area. In the rest of the Peninsula, intervals at the beginning, tending to a little cloudy in general. In the Balearic Islands, Melilla and the Strait area there will be cloudy intervals with some precipitation. In the Canary Islands, the sky will be cloudy with rainfall and some storms in the north of the islands of greater relief, without ruling them out in the rest.
The snow level will be around 500 meters going up to 800 meters in the Peninsula, and about 1,000 meters in the Balearic Islands. Temperatures will continue to drop in the Balearic Islands, the southeast half of the peninsula and the Canary Islands; with little change in the rest. Snowfall and frost are forecast in large areas of the interior of the peninsula, except in the southwest quadrant, which will be more intense in mountain areas and strong in the Pyrenees. The wind will continue to blow from the west in the Peninsula and the Balearic Islands, and from the north in the Canary Islands. It will have strong intervals on the coast of Galicia, Cantabrian Sea, the southern half of the Mediterranean area of the peninsula and the Canary Islands.
