The Western and Central groups of the Azores will be under a yellow warning on Thursday due to the forecast of heavy rain, influenced by the passage of Hurricane Margot, which is not expected to cross the archipelago, according to the IPMA.

In a statement, the Portuguese Sea and Atmosphere Institute (IPMA) said that although the tropical cyclone is not expected to cross the archipelago, its influence could be felt with rain accompanied by thunderstorms on Thursday and Friday in the Western (Flores and Corvo) and Central (Faial, Pico, Terceira, Graciosa and São Jorge) groups.

Following this forecast, the IPMA has issued a yellow warning for these seven islands between 00:00 and 09:00 on Thursday.

The yellow warning, the least serious on a scale of three, is issued whenever there is a risk situation for certain activities depending on the weather situation.

Regardless of its uncertainty, Margot will stay over open waters and will not affect any land.
