IPMA extends yellow warning due to heavy rainfall to all Azores islands

The Portuguese Institute of the Sea and Atmosphere (IPMA) today extended to all islands of the Azores the yellow warning that already exists to seven islands, regarding heavy rainfall, warning of the possibility of occurrence of “rainfall that is sometimes heavy, which could be accompanied by thunderstorm”.

The Western Group (Flores and Corvo) has been under yellow warning since midnight today (1:00 am in Lisbon) and a warning has already been issued for the islands of the Central Group (Terceira, Graciosa, São Jorge, Pico and Faial) , now being extended to the islands of the Eastern Group (São Miguel and Santa Maria). The yellow warning – the third less serious of a scale of three – is in force on the islands of Flores and Corvo until 21:00 this Sunday. The Central Group takes place between 6pm today and 9pm on Monday, while the islands of São Miguel and Santa Maria will be affected between 6pm on Monday and the same time on Tuesday.

It should be noted that IPMA issues a yellow warning whenever there is a risk situation for certain activities depending on the weather situation.
