SPAIN’S weather agency AEMET has issued several weather alerts for the east of the peninsula and Balearics.
Mallorca, Ibiza and Menorca are all on yellow alert for rainfall from today and will remain on the warning until at least Tuesday.
Alicante and the Costa Blanca are expected to see heavy rainfall from tomorrow, and are also on yellow alert until at least Tuesday.
That day is expected to see the highest amount of rainfall with Valencia and Castellon also being put on a yellow warning.
The coast of Castello in Valencia, Tarragona, Barcelona and Girona, meanwhile, will all be on orange alert for rain.
A so-called ‘high-altitude isolated depression’ (DANA) – also known as a gota fria – is behind the predicted downpour.
“Winds from the west will move a mass of cold and humid Atlantic air over the Iberian peninsula, bringing rain and a temperature drop particularly in the northeast and interior of the country,” an AEMET statement read.
“The described scenario is at present very probable until Tuesday, but remains uncertain after Wednesday, with calming down of the rains expected after Thursday.”
The weather agency has urged residents to clean drains, remove cars from risk areas and stay informed.
It comes just weeks after devastating gota fria left tens of millions of euros in damage across the Costa Blanca and parts of Andalucia.
