Some 33 provinces have been issued with amber alerts – signifying high risk- on Monday for strong winds, heavy snow, and big waves in coastal areas. And all other provinces bar the Canary Islands and Ceuta have been issued with the lesser yellow alerts.

Winds of up to 100km/h are expected to hit the eastern coast affecting areas in the Balearics, Valencia, Catalonia and parts of Andalucia and Murcia while snowfall of up to 20cms is predicted in the Pyrenees.

The north coast is also expecting a battering with waves of up to six metres.

The spate of stormy weather is expected to continue throughout Monday and into Tuesday and continuing into Wednesday in pockets of the north of the country.
