AEMET issues yellow alert for Malaga province.
According to AEMET, the State Meteorological Agency, this weekend could see the return of rain in Malaga province. Springtime officially starts this weekend, and Saturday, March 19 is predicted to start cloudy, with the possibility of showers later in the day.
An Atlantic storm is set to enter Spain on Sunday, bringing morning rainfall to the Serrania de Ronda and the western part of the coast, including the municipalities of Estepona, Marbella, Fuengirola and Torremolinos, as well as in the interior of the Guadalhorce Valley.
This rain is not expected to reach Malaga capital until the afternoon, when the showers could also extend to the Axarquia and Antequera, although not as heavy.
Ruben Del Campo, a spokesman for AEMET detailed that the weekend will be “rainy in the Mediterranean”, with rain that will fall with greater intensity in the Balearic Islands, Murcia, eastern Andalucia, and especially in the Valencian Community. The latter could experience up to 140 litres over the next 48 hours.
Strong winds are likely in Malaga on Saturday, increasing throughout the day, especially in Ronda, where this pattern will continue into Sunday 20. A yellow warning has been issued for coastal phenomena throughout the Malaga coast, due to Levante winds.
This alert will affect the coasts of the Axarquia, Costa del Sol and Guadalhorce, as well as the capital, between 6am and midnight, as reported by malagahoy.es.
