Monday is expected to form episodes of precipitation on the north coast of Alicante,  which will extend south in the next few hours. In addition, the wind will also be another important phenomenon, with gusts of 100 km / h and waves of up to 4 meters. 
The most intense hours are expected in the municipalities of the Marina Alta, where significant amounts of rainfall will be recorded in the next few hours. “It will rain between today and tomorrow Tuesday in the province continuously but without torrentiality,”  However, the experts point out that “amounts close to 100 liters can be accumulated in 36 hours in the municipalities of the Marina Alta”. In addition, the State Meteorological Agency (AEMET).

Although the high uncertainty in the forecast which does not allow us to specify much more for now,” as stressed by the Laboratory of Climatology of Alicante, we are advised not rule out precipitation in the form of snow in the mountains. Experts point out that there is still “high uncertainty in the forecast”.

Benidorm itself has not seen snow for many years (approximately 80), but back in January 2017 we did see very heavy hail stones, which looked like it had in fact snowed and social media went mad stating it had “snowed” in Benidorm.
