What you see in the image is the first Atlantic storm of the season. And it comes loaded with water

  • 10

After so many turns in the middle of the Atlantic, the remains of Hurricane Danielle have become “the first significant Atlantic storm” that will affect us this climatological fall. Which is really affecting us. Because since last night, it began to enter the country leaving abundant rains. In the next few days, it will rain a lot.


Where as when? The heaviest rains they will be given at the beginning of the week (Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday) and will affect the west and center of the Peninsula. Due to the “entrance angle” of the storm, the mountains facing south can end up receiving a lot of water (“exceeding 100 mm in several days”). As the days go by and the storm advances to the east, the rains will become softer (but, in returnwe will see many storms)

Let’s leave the summer behind… And not just any summer, no. According to available data, the summer of 2022 has been the warmest in Europe since there are records. Specifically, the average temperature on the continent has been 0.4ºC higher than that of 2021, which until now had the record. But that is nothing if we compare it with Spain: in our country the anomaly has been of two whole degrees and that makes the arrival of autumn really expected.

…and autumn begins in style. In general terms, in autumn we can expect two main types of intense rain: those that come from Atlantic storms and those that come from DANAS, the dreaded ‘cold drops’. Now the first big storm is coming and that is going to translate into 70 km/h winds, rains of more than 100 liters and a general drop in temperatures throughout the country.

In this sense, there has been much speculation about whether everything that has surrounded Danielle will be a change in trend, but the doubts are enormous. After all, for the first time in the century we are going to experience a triple episode of La Niña and this, traditionally, has been associated with a drier and more arid climate in the peninsula. As the swamps empty, autumn defoliates its daisy; that is to say, the worry (the alarm, even) is going to continue with us.

Long periods of drought are going to be more and more normal.  It's time to get used to them

So isn’t that good news for the drought? Obviously, all rain (as long as it is not extreme) is welcome. Very well received. If it is abundant, in fact, it can be quite a small relief; But no more than that. The drought that we have been talking about for months goes far beyond a couple of months without rain: it has been a long period in which each year was drier, hotter and more arid than the previous one. And the consequences (which can be quite dramatic) start to become apparent even outside our borders
