A level 1 was issued for Portugal, Spain and southern France mainly for severe convective wind gusts, excessive precipitation and tornadoes.
Three low pressure areas dominate the map. The Scottish low causes convective showers across a wide area from Celtic Sea to the Kattegat. Yesterday's active low over southwestern Europe is now weakening over Italy and the Adriatic Sea. It is replaced by a vigorously developing new Atlantic low affecting the Iberian Peninsula with stormy and rainy conditions. It develops a warm sector with ample moisture (9-10 g/kg mixing ratio below 1000m) and slight conditional instability under very strongly sheared wind profiles.
