The Valencian Community will see both yellow and orange alerts being issued this week according to the weather forecast from the State Meteorological Agency, AEMET.

According to the weather forecast reported by AEMET, the State Meteorological Agency yesterday, Sunday, November 20, the Valencian Community will experience a mixed bag this week.

Wet weather will replace the cold they predicted, with up to 37 Spanish provinces issuing yellow or orange warnings for wind, coastal phenomena, snow, rain, and storms.

In general, this week will be characterised by the passage of successive storms and associated Atlantic frontal systems. These will cause a marked drop in temperatures and give rise to an episode of rain, strong winds, and poor sea conditions between Monday 21 and Wednesday 23.
