  • Temperatures will fall again this weekend as storm Justine brings widespread strong winds to Malaga and across the province

A new storm, Justine, is on its way in Spain, and it will cause strong generalised winds this weekend according to weather forecasters. But before the strong gusts of air are felt, the Costa del Sol will enjoy unseasonal high temperatures this Friday.

According to Spain’s state weather agency, Aemet, Malaga city centre is expected to see 28 degrees, while in Vélez-Málaga 27 degrees are expected. But in Marbella the mercury is not expected to rise above 22, while in Antequera it is forecast to reach 21 degrees and Ronda 20.

The winds are expected to increase throughout the day, with strong gusts towards the end of the afternoon.

Weekend change

On Saturday there will be cloudy or overcast skies inland and on the westernmost coast. Generally light and occasional rainfall is expected, which will be more intense and frequent in the mountains and during the afternoon, while at night it will be clear.

Along the rest of the coast, intervals of cloudy skies are expected, without rain. The temperature will fall, with an estimated six degrees difference (28 to 22) in Malaga.

The winds will blow from the west with strong gusts and it has not been ruled out that Aemet could activate a weather warning as it has already done in Almeria, Granada and Jaén due to strongs winds and high waves in coastal areas.
