Weather alerts have been issued across much of Spain on Friday as storm Alex rolls in bringing high winds and torrential rain.

Alerts are in place in a total of 47 provinces across Spain.

Spain’s meteorological agency Aemet issued amber alerts for the northern coast from Galicia to the Basque Country where waves are expected to reach over six metres.

They have also been issued for the Balearic Islands and Almeria in the south for stormy seas while much of the peninsula has warnings in place for high winds and torrential rain.


Winds are expected to reach 80km/h and exceed 100 km/h in mountainous regions of the peninsula.

Torrential rain is forecast for much of Spain spreading from the west of the country to the east and the Balearic Islands although parts of the west of Andalusia will likely escape it.  

The Canary Islands is the only region with no weather warnings in place.

Temperatures are also expected to plummet by up to 10C in much of mainland Spain and snow is forecast above 1,200 metres in the mountains in the north of the country.

The stormy weather is predicted to lose its intensity but continue over the weekend and into next week.
