A weather system known as a DANA (isolated depression at high levels) is sweeping eastwards bringing a drop in temperatures, high winds and torrential rain.
Aemet said the cold front was moving eastwards, and placed Alicante and Valencia on orange alert on Monday afternoon.
“We expect the isolated depression at high levels to continue its progress east, bringing wind, rain and high seas to eastern coastal parts of the peninsula and the Balearics,” said a statement from AEMET.
Warnings issued for Tuesday by AEmet.
Orange alerts were extended to Murcia, Castellon and the Balearic Islands for Tuesday and extended north to parts of Catalonia on Wednesday.
In areas above 800 to 1000 metres snow is predicted.
