The Spanish weather agency AEMET has put a yellow weather alert in place for Andalucia for Friday 16th December 2016. The heavy rain and possible thunderstorms are expected. Strong winds are making driving conditions treacherous on some open roads. The warning is lifted for Saturday.
Many parts of the Costa Del Sol are still struggling to deal with the aftermath of the recent storms. Not all of the region’s flood defences have been repaired. The current heavy rainfall could lead to some small scale localised flooding. See pictures of the recent flooding here.
