Meanwhile, parts of Andalucia are placed on orange alert for wind and coastal events for much of the weekend.

Parts of Almeria and Granada could see 90km/h winds, while Ronda in Malaga is on yellow alert for winds reaching 70km/h.

Cordoba and Granada also see sub-zero temperatures.

An area of low pressure is also moving across the Atlantic, which is expected to hit southern Spain next week.
