Rains Spreading Intensely In South Of Catalonia

Catalonia will close the summer soaked. The community is, like the Valencian Community and Aragon, on an orange alert (significant risk) due to rains that could leave up to 80 liters per square meter in an hour on the Valencian north coast and storms, probably accompanied by hail .

Furthermore, in the Catalan case, it is expected to hail even on the Barcelona coast and in the Pyrenees . The storm entered the south of Catalonia this midday and the rains began to spread, in some places with intensity . In La Bisbal del Penedès (Baix Penedès) up to 20.4 l / m² have been collected in 30 minutes.

Civil Protection of the Generalitat de Catalunya keeps the Inuncat Plan alert activated in the event of heavy rains and possible floods throughout the territory, especially on the coast, the southern pre-littoral and in the center.

Protecció Civil expects that the expected rainfall may exceed 20 liters per square meter and be accompanied by storms . That is why they have launched a message to the public to exercise extreme caution, limit outdoor activities and ask those who have vehicles not to park them near rivers for fear of overflows.

The intensity of the rains will be stronger in the south of Catalonia. In Baix Ebre and Montsià, for example, it is possible to exceed 100 liters per square meter in 24 hours.

This episode of rains will begin during the early hours of Monday – affecting, above all, Camp de Tarragona and Central Catalonia – and will spread throughout the country, arriving in the afternoon in the Pyrenean areas, where they are not expected to be so intense.

On Tuesday they will reach the coast, between Tarragonès and Maresme, and from noon they will extend to the Pre-Pyrenees and the regions of Berguedà, Ripollès, Garrotxa and Osona.

As reported by the State Meteorology Agency (Aemet) on its website, the orange alert in the Valencian Community has a special incidence in the surroundings of Sagunto , where throughout this Monday rains of up to 80 liters per square meter are expected in a hour, the most intense of those announced for this day throughout the country.

In addition, it is expected that it will rain heavily, and even that it will hail, in the province of Castellón , although in this case the accumulation of water would be around 40 liters per square meter in one hour and would be less than the torrential rains registered on Sunday in Benicàssim , where 155 liters per square meter were collected in just two hours, 30% of what rains in a year in that coastal municipality.
