Up to 15 litres of rain per square metre are expected in one hour on the western coast of Malaga, in the capital of the Costa del Sol and in the Guadalhorce valley, as well as in the southern part of the Ronda region.

Maximum temperatures in the capital will remain largely unchanged between 13 and 19ºC.
