WIND and rain that will affect most of the country have caused the Aemet Spanish state weather office to place 36 provinces on alert.
Almeria, Granada, Mallorca, Gran Canaria, La Palma and Tenerife are on orange alerts (considerable risk) while the rest have yellow alerts in place.
In Mallorca the alert is for bad sea conditions with waves of four to five metres high forecast. In Alicante and Valencia high winds of up to 70 kilometres per hour and rainfall expected to reach 60 litres per square metre over 12 hours have caused yellow alerts to be put in place.
The same amount of rain is forecast for Murcia, where yellow alerts are also in place.
All Andalucian provinces are affected, with Almeria under orange alert with waves up to three metres high forecast along with 15 litres per square metre per hour rainfall and snow of up to four centimetres expected in Almanzora and Los Velez.
Granada can expect up to five centimetres of snow in the mountains and heavy winds on the coast.
For Cadiz and Malaga, both also under yellow alerts, strong coastal winds and heavy rain combined with wind speeds of up to 80 kilometres per hour are forecast with a strong possibility of snow in the Ronda area.
