Met Office issues a RED weather warning to the UK.
AEMET issues Yellow Alert weather warning for Baza and Guadix in Granada.
Aemet, the State Meteorological Agency, has issued a yellow warning for storms from 12:00 midday to 12 o’clock midnight in the north of the province of Granada, Andalucia, specifically in the region of Baza and Guadix.
In Baza, it is expected that it will begin to rain from noon and that it will last until midnight with considerable intensity between 18:00 and 24:00 with accumulations of up to 15mm in an hour.
The forecast for Guadix is that it will stop raining from 6:00 p.m. In both areas, the storm will occur in the interval from 12:00 to 18:00 and is expected to be accompanied by gusts of wind of up to 20 kilometres per hour.
The Andalucian Emergency Service 112 posted a warning on its Twitter account that precautions must be taken in the event of a storm warning:
“Vehicles should not be parked near watercourses or streams, should not cross through flooded sections and Nor should you practice sports outdoors during the storm because wet clothing makes it easier to attract lightning.”

Ron actually started his working career as an Ophthalmic Technician- things changed when, during a band rehearsal, his amplifier blew up and he couldn’t get it fixed so he took a course at Birmingham University and ended up doing a degree course. He built up a chain of electronics stores and sold them as a franchise over 35 years ago. After five years touring the world Ron decided to move to Spain with his wife and son, a place they had visited over the years, and only bought the villa they live in because it has a guitar-shaped swimming pool!.
Playing the guitar since the age of 7, he can often be seen, (and heard!) at beach bars and clubs along the length of the coast. He has always been interested in the news and constantly thrives to present his articles in an interesting and engaging way.
