A big new storm arrives this Saturday (4 November) to the Iberian Peninsula. Christened Domingos, it will have similar characteristics to its predecessor, Ciarán; in other words, heavy rain, strong winds and associated sea storms in a large part of the country, according to Spain's state weather agency (Aemet)

How will storm Domingos affect Malaga and the Costa del Sol?

Well, the long-awaited rains will not arrive, but strong winds will. Aemet has activated a yellow warning for coastal phenomena for this Saturday in the province, between 4pm and midnight. Westerly winds are expected with intervals of 50 to 60 kilometres per hour (force 7) and they will affect the entire Malaga coastline. Waves of 2 to 3 metres are also expected, especially along the Axarquia coastline.

On Sunday there are currently no active weather alerts in Malaga and skies will be clearer. In the rest of Andalucía, cloudy skies are expected, with occasional rainfall extending from west to east, more intense and frequent in the evening, which will not reach the far east and are unlikely on the Mediterranean slope.

With a low probability of snow, in the Cantabrian and northern Iberian Mountains, the altitudes will decrease to 1,400/1,800 metres.

In the Canary Islands, cloudy intervals are expected in the north, without ruling out isolated light rainfall in the mountainous parts of the islands.

Temperatures will increase practically across the board, reaching notable increases in the eastern Cantabrian Sea, except in the southeast of the Iberian Peninsula and the Canary Islands, where they will tend to fall slightly. Frosts are expected in the Pyrenees.

Intense westerly and southwesterly winds will continue to blow over the Spanish mainland and the Balearic Islands; and strong intervals with very strong gusts are expected in large areas of the northwest quarter, the centre, the interior of the eastern third and the coasts, as well as on the islands.

Winds will be particularly strong in the north of Galicia and the Cantabrian Sea, reaching very strong levels, while in the Canary Islands a moderate northerly wind will blow.
