A moisture-laden storm from the Atlantic Ocean will bring a variety of disruptive weather to the Iberian Peninsula and South of France into Saturday.
The storm first arrived on Friday with a band of rain sweeping from west to east across Portugal and Spain. Heavy downpours with the storm caused poor visibility and ponding on roadways. Localized flooding issues in low-lying and poor drainage areas will continue to be an issue into Saturday, especially along the northern tier of the country.
In the Cantabrian Mountains, the rain will persist into Saturday evening. Along the northern slopes, rainfall totals of 25-50 mm (1-2 inches) can be expected with local amounts up to 100 mm (4 inches), elevating the risk for flooding throughout the region.
