The affected areas in nine regions will be at risk (yellow) or significant risk (amber) from wind, rain or rough seas.
Storm Bernard will continue to affect the Spanish mainland today, and will put 18 provinces in nine regions at risk (yellow) or at significant risk (orange) of wind, rain and rough seas, according to the forecast from Spain's state weather agency (Aemet).
During the day, a new front is expected to cross the mainland from west to east, leaving several points with heavy rainfall as it passes across Spain. The rain will particularly affect Huesca, Zaragoza, Ávila, Soria, Guadalajara, Toledo, Lérida and Madrid, which will be at risk from accumulations of up to 20mm in an hour.
In general, Aemet forecasts cloudy or overcast skies throughout most of the country, as well as early morning rainfall around the Strait of Gibraltar and the northern half of the mainland, with the probability of heavy rainfall in the Pyrenees, especially in Aragon, where it will also be persistent, the Central System and the eastern Cantabrian Sea.
Winds will be westerly in the Cantabrian Sea, the Strait of Gibraltar and Alboran with some strong intervals, and predominantly southerly and south-westerly winds in the rest of the mainland and the Balearic Islands, with strong intervals on the Levante coast, very strong gusts in mountain areas in the centre and northwest quadrant of the mainland, and tending to ease off throughout the day.
