RED level warning for Valencia and Ibiza

Monster waves, snow and squalls as of Sunday noon

A big vortex of clouds will form off the coast of Alicante on Sunday noon and will head slowly towards the Alboran Sea until Monday. That means, there will be storm, rain, snowfall and elevated swell.

It will be particularly severe at the coast of Valencia. Monster waves of up to 8 metres have been announced between the provincial capital, Cullera, Gandia, Denia and Xabia. In addition, there will be gusts of up to 90 km/h. The snow line will drop to 500 metres and lower altitudes are expecting up to 60 mm of rain. (Here, the link to our live cams in Valencia. Let's see how long the sea spray will allow us to offer a clear stream...)

It will be just as dangerous on the Balearic Islands where up to 120 mm of rain have been announced. The wind will sweep across the islands with 120 km/h and the waves will reach heights of up to 7 metres.

10 to 15 cm of snow have been forecasted for the region between Murcia and Alicante, an orange level warning has been issued correspondingly.

All details regarding any surprises the low might offer will be available in our live ticker.
