Mataró  Catalunya 
Spain (41.53 N, 2.45 E) < 100 km
22-01-2021  (Friday)
10:00 UTC (+/- 1 hrs.)

based on information from: a report on a website, photo or video of the event
the intensity rating was based on severe wind.
After a few days of heavy weather, with temperatures even higher than normal on these dates, the sky has exploded. A line of storms produced by a line of cumulonimbus arcus has swept the central Catalan coast, including the Maresme, unleashing great virulence in the form of wind and rain. Cumulonimbus arcus is an unusual type of cloud that, when it occurs, usually generates violent storms.
