A RED alert has this morning been issued by Spain’s Met Office (AEMET) as a Gota Fría advances on the Costa Blanca.

The extreme risk warning – the most severe alert – has been set for the very early hours of Thursday morning, and will be in effect until midday.

Costa Blanca south, however, will be on red alert until 6am on Friday morning.

AEMET predicts rainfall of 90 l/m sq to hit within one-hour periods, while lightning storms have a ‘40% – 70%’ probability.

Gale-force winds reaching 70 km/h are also expected, whipping waves up to 3m in height.
