The whole of Malaga province is under a yellow weather alert

Aemet, the Spanish Met Office is warning residents that over 20 litres of rain per square metre could fall in an hour over anywhere in the province this weekend.


The national weather authority issued its latest alert after 45 litres per square metre of rain drenched Rhonda on Thursday leading to flash floods.

The torrential rain started around 4pm in the afternoon transforming city streets into rivers and forcing residents to remain in their home.

Meteorologists have now issued a yellow alert through Saturday with the Costa del Sol and the Guadalhorce valley likely to see heavy rainfall, into Saturday evening.

Rain is likely to continue through Sunday but will not have the intensity of Saturday’s storms.

Despite the rainfall, temperatures will remain on the warm side with bright sunny weather expected to return to Nerja and the rest of the Costa del Sol from Monday onwards.
