Catalonia - Warnings for freezing rain
Europe - Alle Warnungen

The map gives an overview of all the freezing rain warnings for Catalonia. On the graphic you can see at which locations respectively in which areas of Catalonia freezing rain has to be reckoned with. Freezing rain is rain immediately freezing after falling on a frozen surface. That induces frozen and slippery conditions in Catalonia.

We distinguish between weather watches and weather warnings. Freezing rain watches are issued if freezing rain falls in Catalonia are probable but there are uncertainties about duration, intensity and/or the course of them. The freezing rain warnings, in turn, are divided into three levels: At the orange warning level light, at the red warning level moderate and at the violet, top warning level considerable obstructions due to freezing rain have to be reckoned with. Because the danger arising from freezing rain can't immediately be recognized, the detailed and reliable forecasts of such freezing rain events are very important especially for the traffic situation on motorways and other roads and the dependent road users, as well as for the accident service in Catalonia. Care must thus be taken on the roads of Catalonia during freezing rain fall!
