SPAIN’S national weather agency, AEMET, has upgraded its severe weather warning to ORANGE for Malaga and the Costa del Sol tomorrow (Saturday).

The Sol, Guadalhorce and Axarquia areas are now on a higher state of alert for heavy rain and thunderstorms.

Throughout the rest of the peninsula there is also a raft of yellow weather alerts for severe weather (see below).


The state weather agency has said that a DANA, an isolated high-altitude depression, is expected which, together with the presence of a warm and humid flow from the Mediterranean, will cause a marked instability of the atmosphere across much of the country with showers and storms – mainly in the east and southeast.

Between Saturday (September 8) and Monday (September 10) with the DANA most likely centered on the southwest and the east the most affected areas will be eastern Andalucia, the Strait of Gibraltar, Melilla, Murcia, the Valencian Community and the eastern side of Castilla La Mancha. The showers and storms will likely be strong and even very strong or persistent and localised hail storms may be experienced.
