TEMPEST: Waves of up to four metres are predicted.

THE Spanish meteorological agency, AEMET, in Malaga has raised the yellow weather warning currently in place for Thursday December 1 to orange, as heavy rains and ferocious winds are set to sweep the Costa del Sol.

As much as 30 litres of water per square metre is predicted to fall per hour during the worst of the squall, with a high risk of flash floods and other such perils.

The warning covers Malaga City, the Costa del Sol, and the Guadalhorce Valley, although the western portion of the province is expected to bear the heaviest battering between midnight and 1pm, with the deluge continuing until at least 7pm.
