STRONG winds and rain are heading to Malaga and the Costa del Sol again this weekend.

It follows a week of rain with very few breaks of sunshine.

According to weather agency AEMET, there will be strong winds on ‘virtually all fronts’ in the Malaga province on Saturday, along with rainfall.

It plans to activate the orange alert along the Malaga coast and the yellow warning across all areas apart from the Axarquia.

A coastal storm is expected to hit its peak strength between 8pm and 12am on Saturday night.

During this time, winds from the west could reach force eight – between 62-74km/hr.

For much of the day they will be at force seven, between 50 and 61km/hr.

The rain and strong winds will continue on Sunday but with less force.
