When it arrives, the rain is predicted to be very intense and the experts have not ruled out that weather alerts of any level could possibly be activated due to the high threat of heavy rains in Valencia, Alicante and Castellón.

AEMET, the State Meteorological Agency also confirmed this Friday 15 that another DANA is expected to arrive in Spain between Tuesday and Thursday of next week. However, they could not clarify at this stage whether it would affect the Community with any great force.

Temperatures were not expected to change excessively this Friday. They should remain at values of around 30°C during the central hours of Friday in coastal regions said the meteorologists.

Some parts of the Community suffered adverse conditions earlier today with heavy rain falling in the Alicante municipality of Elche.

A tweet from AEMET this morning read: ‘For now, the Valencia storms are not static and move from south to north so, although they have very strong intensity, they are short-lived. In Alicante, there is practically only rain left in the Marina Alta. Radar images from the last 3 hours’.
