More wet and windy weather is expected throughout the day which is expected to weaken in the next few days.
The State Agency of Meteorology (Aemet) forecasts for this Tuesday that storm Gloria storm will continue to lash the country, leaving snow in the Iberian and eastern Pyrenees system, with snow expected below 500 meters in the centre and northwest areas, in addition to rainfall and strong winds in various parts of the country.
Abundant rainfall is expected today, Tuesday, in the Balearic Islands and locally heavy or persistent in Catalonia, Valencia and Aragon.
