According to Aemet, storm Celia will affect almost the entire peninsula and the Canary and Balearic archipelagos as well, with abundant rainfall and sometimes mud, strong winds and rough seas.

The State Meteorological Agency has announced that a new storm will form in the southwest of the Peninsula throughout Sunday afternoon, which will influence the weather for the next few days throughout Spain.

On Sunday, Monday and Tuesday the storm will remain stationary in the southwest of the Peninsula.

Storm Celia is also expected to affect the Canary Islands, at least on Monday and Tuesday, with rainfall that will be persistent in the north of the islands and will be accompanied by northerly winds with strong or very strong gusts and rough seas.

The Canary Islands remain on alert for strong wind and high waves on Monday and Tuesday as well 

There's an orange alert activated in the Canary Islands this Monday due to strong winds and waves, which has been extended for Tuesday as well, including also the possibility of snow at altitudes over 1500 m in Tenerife and La Palma.

Maximum wind gusts of 70 to 90 km/h are expected, as well as high waves of 5 to 6 meters, which is why the alert is also in place for coastal phenomena. 

Aemet remarked that in this type of situation there's a high degree of uncertainty, since small variations in the position of the storm can lead to a significant change in the geographical distribution and intensity of rainfall. 

Below is the official announcement from Aemet, but the document is available only in Spanish
