The Portuguese Institute of the Sea and Atmosphere (IPMA) today extended to the islands of the Central group the yellow warning already in place for the Western group of the Azores regarding precipitation, which may be heavy at times.

According to the warnings issued by IPMA, in the islands of the Central group (Faial, Pico, Graciosa, São Jorge and Terceira) the yellow alert is in force since 09:00 local time (10:00 in Lisbon) today and extends until 12:00 (13:00 in Lisbon) on Friday.

The IPMA had already issued on Wednesday a yellow warning for the Western group (Flores and Corvo) to be in force between 15:00 local time (16:00 in Lisbon) on Thursday and 12:00 (13:00 in Lisbon) on Friday, taking into account the forecasts of “precipitation sometimes strong, which may be accompanied by thunderstorms”.

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