THE Costa del Sol in Spain has been told to expect a week of violent storms and heavy rainfall by the weather agency AEMET.

From tonight, August 10 and through to midday on Tuesday, an area of isolated depression at high altitude will occur off the coast of southwestern Europe. This will bring with it a cold front and a drop in temperatures, causing stormy weather to move northwest across the Spanish peninsula.

Expect severe storms tomorrow and Wednesday!


Starting at noon, instability will increase in the centre of Spain and in the north, with very intense storms in parts of Las Castillas, Madrid, southeast Galicia and northeast Extremadura. Further updates on the weather will be available tomorrow. Video credit: @tiempo
