Rough conditions in Cala San Vicente three years ago. | Alejandro Sepúlveda


Aemet has assigned a name to a storm for the first time. Cyclone Ana, says the met agency, is a very intense storm that will reach the north coast of Spain tomorrow (Sunday) and affect a large part of the mainland and the Balearics.

Rainfall in areas of the mainland is forecast to exceed 100 millimetres per hour. This rainfall is expected to be more dispersed and weaker along the Valencia and Murcia coasts and in the Balearics. Winds are predicted to be up to 100 kilometres per hour, and these are due to affect the Balearics, producing very rough coastal conditions in parts of the islands.
