Aemet’s amber warning for coastal phenomena - strong winds and high waves - will remain in force along the Costa del Sol this Tuesday 5 April, at least until 12midday. The forecast from Spain's Met Office suggests the day may be worse than Monday, in which beaches and promenades were battered by the storm. The amber alert affects the entire Malaga province coastline and also the coasts of Granada, Almeria and Cadiz provinces.

The State Meteorological Agency, Aemet, anticipates winds from the east and northeast of force 8 to 9 and waves of 4 to 6 metres. The highest waves could reach 10 metres, so the beaches may continue to lose sand and the terraces of the beach bars closest to the sea may suffer damage, as happened during the day on Monday.
