Unpleasant weather will once again be the main feature this Good Friday in Malaga province, which includes the Costa del Sol. The skies will be cloudy and moderate rainfall is not ruled out in the morning and late afternoon, according to the forecast from Spain's state Met Office (Aemet). The most rainfall is expected in the Serranía de Ronda, which is why Aemet has activated a yellow 'risk' warning in that area, which will initially remain in force from the early hours of this 29 March until midday. During this period some 40mm of rainfall is forecast.

In addition, the winds will blow moderately southerly, with strong intervals and very strong gusts during the first half of the day. From midday onwards they will turn west, before turning south again in the afternoon in the eastern half of the province.
