* Weather in Marbella

Marbella really got hit today with the weather. When it rains here, it really pours. Today´s trip to La Cañada shopping centre was a real mess. The underground parking lot was jam packed and flooded.

And the return back home was even more crazy. The AP-7 and N340 were blocked with traffic, so we had to wind our way home through the back roads of Nueva Andalucia.

The weather is supposed to clear up by Tuesday and looks good for the rest of the week. If you would like to stay on top of the weather and know what to expect on your next trip to Marbella, check out our Marbella Weather Page. Click here to read more...
