The active tropical storm is located Thursday, September 22nd on the coast of Senegal, reports the State Meteorological Agency (Aemet). The National Hurricane Center foresees an intensification of it and with a probability of 60%, it will evolve into a tropical depression during the next five days as it moves north-northwest, between the Cape Verde Islands and the African coast.

With the information available to date, the Aemet specifies, "it is likely that between Saturday 24th and Monday 26th, it will approach the Canary Islands, although it is very unlikely that it will directly impact the Archipelago."

During Saturday the intensity of rainfall will be moderate, but for Sunday and Monday a strong or very strong intensity is expected, mainly in the western islands. In principle, the peak day of this episode will be Sunday, when it is likely to accumulate around 60-100 litres per square metre, except in Lanzarote and Fuerteventura where the expected amount of rain is lower.
