AEMET issues yellow and orange alerts for Andalucia.
AEMET, the State Meteorological Agency has today, Saturday, March 19, activated a yellow alert for the province of Granada. It will be in force from 8pm, specifically along the region of the Costa Tropical, and remains in place until midnight on Sunday 20.
As detailed by AEMET, the wind will blow on the eastern coast of Granada with an intensity of up to Force 7. This could cause waves of three or four metres high on the coastline, so it is recommended to avoid the beaches during these hours.
During today, the alert will only remain in force on the Costa Tropical, Cadiz, and the Strait of Gibraltar. Several regions in the east of Spain, and the north and northeast of Mallorca, along with the coastal strip of Menorca, also have the warning activated.
On Sunday 20, this warning will change to orange in Cadiz, and remain for Monday 21. The alert in place for Granada will move to the coast of Almeria on Sunday. These winds are the tail end of Storm Celia, which is finally disappearing, as reported by granadadigital.es.
