Costa Blanca News (South Edition) - - Front Page - By Dave Jones djones@cb­

A GRAD­UAL drop in the tem­per­a­ture ac­com­pa­nied by rain and snow – this is the fore­cast from state weather agency AEMET for the week­end in Ali­cante prov­ince.

With the spring ar­riv­ing on Tues­day (March 20), the win­ter seems de­ter­mined to go out with bang.

The agency’s me­te­o­rol­o­gists are pre­dict­ing that snow could fall in Ali­cante’s moun­tains above 1,300 me­tres to­mor­row (Satur­day), with the level fall­ing to 1,000m on Sun­day – then 900m on Mon­day and 600m on Tues­day as the tem­per­a­ture drops.

They noted that frosts could oc­cur in in­land ar­eas of the prov­ince on Tues­day night. Their fore­cast shows that rain is pos­si­ble in coasThe tal towns to­day (Fri­day), Satur­day, Sun­day and Mon­day.

pro­gres­sive fall in the mer­cury will see a top tem­per­a­ture of 14°C on Mon­day in Benidorm and 15°C in Tor­re­vieja, ac­cord­ing to AEMET.

Me­te­o­rol­o­gist at Ali­cante univer­sity’s cli­ma­tol­ogy lab, Sa­muel Biener noted that a low pres­sure weather sys­tem was set to cross the south of the Ibe­rian Penin­sula between Satur­day and Sun­day.

He said that winds off the sea dur­ing this pe­riod could bring pre­cip­i­ta­tion to many ar­eas of Ali­cante prov­ince.

Al­though the fore­cast was still not clear at the time of go­ing to press, he noted that the weather sys­tem could pull in cold air from Eastern Europe.
