The Levante blows over the city of Tarifa with full force. The Atlantic waves are blown away by the easterly storm, the townspeople disappear into their houses and flats, it's no fun being outside. The wind builds up over a few days and can then reach wind forces of up to 8.
Bordered by the Sierra Nevada to the north and the Atlas to the south, the wind is accelerated and forced through the Strait of Gibraltar before losing energy again on the Atlantic. The Levante can be observed at irregular intervals throughout the year. As a rule, this phenomenon occurs every two to three weeks with a duration of three to five days. | Spain
