MANY parts of Spain, including the holiday islands of Ibiza, Mallorca and Menorca are in for another lashing this weekend with the THREE DAYS of bad weather forecast from today (Friday).

There are yellow alerts in place (full details below) for heavy rain, thunderstorms, high coastal waters and even snow according to the national state Met Office, AEMET.

AEMET has warned of a ‘dramatic drop in temperatures across the country’ as the mass of warm air that brought high temperatures this week will be replaced by an Arctic front.


Forecasters suggest a drop of between 10 and 15ºC in the southeast of the peninsula.

The first general frost of the season has also been forecast for the weekend.

The latest bad weather alerts come after floods devasted many parts of the country leaving fatalities in Mallorca and, last weekend, a firefighter in Andalucia.

Most of the snow is expected to fall in the north of country according to the latest forecasts – although the Sierra Nevada ski resort, near Granada, has already received dustings so far this autumn.

Alerts will remain in place in many areas though until Sunday which is the day the clocks go back at 3am in the morning.
