Well, some thunderstorms developed after all yesterday, mostly in the late afternoon. And, as anticipated, an even stronger round of storms is on the way today. In fact, the most impressive and organized line of thunderstorms thus far has just crossed the Portuguese/Spanish border, extending from Huelva well into Badajoz province. This line will continue to move east into Sevilla and Cordoba provinces this morning, bringing with it torrential rain and strong winds. The Gibraltar sounding from 1 AM is more unstable than yesterday, further supporting the forecast of stronger storms.
Once again, most of this activity will be centered on the western half of Andalucia. AEMET has raised an orange alert for heavy rains (30-40 mm per hour) in Sevilla, Cordoba, Cadiz, and western Malaga provinces. In areas already saturated areas by previous rains, some flooding (especially in urban areas) could result. With the strongest storms, again, beware also of high winds. We will monitor the line of thunderstorms in the west for changes.
Tomorrow, much (but not all) precipitation should shift to the north of Andalucia, and Thursday looks warm and dry.
