The DANA leaves Spain with rains in both Castillas and Madrid and stability will arrive until the weekend


The intense rainfall left by the isolated depression at high levels of the atmosphere (DANA) will gradually decrease in the last hours of this Monday, although rainfall is still expected in

Castilla-La Mancha, Castilla y León and the Community of Madrid and will move towards the eastern half of Castilla-La Mancha, Iberian system, upper Ebro and western Cantabrian, according to weather forecasts.

The meteorological information portal forecasts that atmospheric stability will prevail until the weekend as the DANA moves towards the northwest of the Peninsula in the next few hours where the second half of this Monday the rains will also reach the west and the north of Galicia, as well as in the most mountainous islands of the Canary Islands, where some showers may fall. This is added to the remains of ex-hurricane 'Franklin', which will give rise to an isolated cold storm.

In addition, DANA is promoting warm air and suspended dust on the Mediterranean and Balearic slopes, where there will be an increase in temperatures.

The spokesman for the State Meteorological Agency (AEMET) José Luis Camacho has assessed that the rainfall has been "remarkable" throughout the country, since it has exceeded 50 liters per square meter in 24 hours in almost all areas of the Community of Madrid, in large areas of Toledo and Ávila and were higher than 30 liters per square meter in large areas of both plateaus.

On the other hand, Meteored ( also points out that the rain will give the Peninsula a breather after accumulating more than 200 liters per square meter (l/m2) in the Community of Madrid, or 160.8 l/ m2 in Magán (Toledo) as well as in the AEMET station in San Rafael (Segovia), where the 147.8 l/m2 collected on Sunday, September 3, stood out.

Likewise, in the provinces of Tarragona, Castellón, Cádiz and Navarra, the amount of water fluctuated between 100 and 200 l/m2, such as the 172.2 l/m2 registered at the San José del Valle station in Cádiz, which marked the maximum main network or the Tarragona station in Tortosa with 117.2 l/m2, according to AEMET data.

This situation has been extraordinary in several regions according to Meteored, due to the very irregular rainfall and the diversity of meteorological phenomena, such as tornadoes, marine sleeves, hail, very strong gusts of wind, sea storms and hail.

In this way, the DANA will be located to the northwest of the Iberian Peninsula and will be absorbed by the remains of Hurricane Franklin starting this Monday, although it will be in the form of a storm.

In more detail, this Tuesday there could still be showers in Galicia and inland areas of the peninsula such as the upper Ebro, as well as in the northwest of the peninsula and in the center on Wednesday, with locally somewhat intense rains in Alicante and Valencia, although much weaker than those of Sunday.

Temperatures will tend to drop in the eastern half and the Balearic Islands, although they will rise in the rest of the country, especially in Bilbao due to the southerly winds, where the maximum is expected to be around 34ºC.

In any case, on Thursday the instability could increase again according to, since light rains are expected on the Andalusian Mediterranean coast accompanied by medium and high cloudiness, clouds that will grow strongly in the northwest and the Pyrenees with occasionally intense downpours and storms.

Thus, there will be an extensive area of ​​low pressure located off the coast of Portugal until the weekend, since on Friday the storm would continue to move to the southwest, which would increase the rains by the end of the week.

With respect to the weekend, the uncertainty is greater, but according to the Meteored model, the storm will fill in and approach the Peninsula, so if this scenario is fulfilled, there could be storms in several regions, with a thermal drop that I would begin to notice on the Atlantic side.

However, has specified that on Saturday and Sunday the center of the storm is expected to approach the southern coast of Portugal, so it could enter the Peninsula on Monday, albeit weakly.

In this way, on Saturday showers could appear in the northwest quadrant of the peninsula, especially in the south of Galicia and in the Cantabrian Coast of Asturias, which would form again in the northwest and spread to more areas of the center and interior south of the peninsula on Sunday, although with less intensity.

This instability could continue at the beginning of next week, although both weather portals agree that uncertainty is very high as of Friday, so forecasts can still change.


Given the climatic instability, according to, temperatures could rise slightly these days until they remain stable during the second half of the week.

30ºC will be exceeded in the valleys of the main peninsular rivers, while in the rest they will oscillate between 25ºC and 30ºC, with the highest in the Guadalquivir, where up to 35ºC is expected between Friday and Saturday.
