The IPMA (Portuguese Institute for Sea and Atmosphere) has intensified the weather warning for tomorrow, especially for rain, which has been upgraded to an orange warning on the South coast and mountainous regions. This warning will be in effect from midnight to 3:00 PM on Tuesday. For the North coast during the same period, a yellow warning is in effect, an area that was not included in the warnings of the past few days.
The 15-hour orange warning period anticipates “periods of rain or showers, sometimes heavy and accompanied by thunderstorms” for the South coast and mountains, and “periods of rain or showers, sometimes heavy and occasionally accompanied by thunderstorms” for the North coast.
Regarding the wind, a yellow warning is in effect from midnight until 6:00 PM tomorrow, foreseeing “southwest wind with gusts up to 90 km/h” on the South coast and Porto Santo, while the IPMA indicates wind with gusts up to 110 km/h in mountainous regions.
Finally, for maritime conditions, a yellow warning is also in effect from 9:00 PM on Tuesday to 5:00 PM on Wednesday, with “waves from the west/northwest with a height of 4 to 4.5 meters” on the North coast. In the South, there are aggravated conditions with “southwest waves of 4 to 5 meters, changing to west waves,” and on the Porto Santo coast, there are “west quadrant waves of 4 to 5 meters,” on an island without yellow or orange warnings for rain.
