An impressive deep cyclone named Storm Barbara by the Spanish meteorological agency is moving into Europe on October 20, 2020, bringing powerful winds and very heavy rainfall. The first to feel its effects are Portugal and Spain where Red and Orange alerts are in effect today.

Barbara is expected to bring strong winds and heavy rain to Portugal and Spain on Tuesday and Wednesday, October 20 and 21.

The rain will then spread further inland into France, where Orange and Yellow warnings now cover most of the country.
