In fact the rain this week is expected to be the last of the month in Andalucia, with clear skies and higher temperatures expected for the rest of September.
According to Aemet, there are active yellow warnings for coastal phenomena in Almería and Granada until 11am today, however the skies, which may be cloudy in the morning, will gradually clear up during the day.
Meanwhile maximum temperatures of around 27C are expected in most provinces, with lows of around 15C.
