Low pressure approaching from the North Sea is due to hit the Iberian peninsula and Balearic Islands on Thursday, bringing wind, snow and rain that will not let up before next Wednesday, national weather service AEMET reported.

The worst of the storm will be felt between Thursday and Sunday, when winds are expected to gust upwards of 100 km/h along the Cantabrian coast, in northern Spain. Strong gales will also sweep across much of the peninsula on Friday, including parts of the Mediterranean coast.

Thirty provinces in 14 regions are on alert for bad weather, including Madrid, the Basque Country, Asturias, Catalonia, Valencia, Aragón and parts of Andalusia.

Well, we've had high winds for the last couple of days but the temp. has been around 22.

Last night it really hit! Trees down, wooden (heavy) bench picked up and dumped somewhere - still to find it.

Wooden (teak) table and chairs splattered all around the garden.


The tidy up starts now!

It happened last night & I think they mean the North Atlantic.

No, the low is sitting in the North Sea and the effects have reached as far south as southern Spain.

The low pressure from this is pushing up against a high pressure area to the west of Spain and that is what is causing the high winds.

Taken a bit of a beating here. The house is perched on a hill top with miles of open campo to the North and West.
Apart from the usual plant pots and debris scattered far and wide, one pane of glass blew out, as well as one whole window complete with frame.
Par for the course here, a couple of years back the chimney blew down and did a fair bit of damage to the roof.
On the bright side we should be the last house in the area to go under water in times of floods.
