Marbella was put on a Yellow alert today as the long awaited rain finally arrived early this morning.

Spanish meteorological office AEMET predicted that the rains will last in the region until midday on Wednesday.

There was heavy snowfall on the road up to Ronda, with the town place on Orange Alert and buses apparently stopping at El Madronal until the road is cleared.

Several roads in the Sierra de las Nieves Park have also been closed, while Social Media reported snow falling in the hills behind Estepona, Mijas and even the beach in Fuengirola.
