Yellow alert in Portuguese districts due to cold weather and large waves

Written By Lara Silva

The districts of Vila Real, Bragança, and Guarda are under yellow art on Monday and Tuesday due to the extremely cold weather, according to the Instituto Português do Mar e da Atmosfera (IPMA). The yellow alert ends at 9 am on Tuesday for the three districts. These districts have reached negative temperatures, with Saturday having been the coldest day with temperatures reaching -2ºC.

The IPMA told CNN that the cold temperatures are a result of a polar air mass arriving in Portugal, as well as other European countries. The cities of Lisbon and Porto are not heavily affected as temperatures in these cities remain mild.

A yellow alert has also been applied to Faro until Tuesday at 3 pm due to rough waters. Waves of 2 to 3 meters are predicted in the district.

The North coast of Madeira and Porto Santo are also expecting waves of 4.5 meters and are under yellow alert until Monday at 6 pm. The more mountainous regions of Madeira were on yellow alert until today at 12 pm due to winds of 95 kilometers an hour.

A Yellow Alert means that the weather conditions represent a risk for certain activities. Essentially, it means residents need to be careful during the alert period.
