The isolated depression at high levels (DANA) that formed this Saturday, and that has already left floods in different parts of the country, will continue to affect practically all of Spain until Tuesday. With temperature drops, instability and storms (a situation in which the Canary Islands will be left out), the accumulated precipitation may leave more than 100 liters per square meter throughout the episode.
As warned by the State Meteorological Agency (Aemet) In a special warning, this Sunday especially heavy rains are expected in the center, southeastern third, Levante and northern plateau, as well as strong winds in Levante and the northeast. In short, in most of the peninsula and west of the Balearic Islands, cloudy or covered skies will predominate, with abundant storms.
In the morning, Valencia, Alacant and Murcia will be the most affected provincesbut in the second half of the day the most intense and persistent rainfall will move to Madrid and Toledowhere a cumulative total of 80 liters per square meter could be reached or exceeded.
???? From the #ASEM112all drivers who plan to return to Madrid tomorrow, Sunday, are recommended to advance their trip to avoid driving on the roads during the afternoon, when the most virulent storms are expected.

As a general trend, the rains will move throughout the day from the southeast to the northwest, with a probability of becoming strong and locally persistent in the southeastern third and center of the peninsula.
It’s not discarded haze in the eastern half of the peninsula, Melilla and the Balearic Islands, so precipitation could be accompanied by mud, while in mountain areas of the peninsula, morning fog banks are likely, which may be persistent in some places.
It is expected a intense wind from the east and northeast in the peninsula and the Balearic Islands, which will become strong in the Levant and on the coasts of the peninsular northwest, and with very strong gusts in the Balearic Islands. The incipient cloudiness and the days of rain that almost the entire country will experience will leave a autumn atmosphere, with temperatures below usual for these dates.
