“Met Office” issue warning for heavy rain Sunday
I was actually going to run this story a couple of days ago when a reader alerted me to the 5-day forecast for the archipelago, particularly for tomorrow, but held back on the basis that predictions that far off can disappear when you are a small rock in the middle of a very large ocean!
However, the Diario is currently ringing the alarm bells with reports that tomorrow’s weather forecast from IPMA, the Portuguese “Met Office”, contains a high likelihood of rain – particularly considering that a lot of areas on the south of Madeira that haven’t seen any significant precipitation for a long time.
They report that the islands of Madeira and Porto Santo have been placed under a yellow warning for most of tomorrow, with showers forecast for the north coast and mountainous inland regions later today.
The good news is that the likelihood % has fallen since earlier in the week when it stood at over 90%, so it may disappear completely.
