Hola Celia

We tend to not use the articles when talking about the weather in this sort of sentences. However if we were to be a bit more specific we would use the article, for example:

"Hay una tormenta terrible en el norte de España"

 (There is a terrible storm in the north of Spain)

I hope this helps,

Saludos
