As from tomorrow, the forecast in the interior shows an increase of up to eight degrees, although the east wind will reduce the heat in Malaga city and on the coast
The time for a change of wardrobe has finally arrived after the heavy rain of these last few days. It’s finally time to dig out your summer clothes and put your winter clothes away. You can now start feeling the heat, but it’ll mainly be as from tomorrow when the thermometer will start to rise, up to the point that the forecast until the weekend shows a maximum rise from six to eight degrees, until reaching a temperature of 30 degrees. However, on the coast and in Malaga city it won’t be so hot, thanks to the east wind, and the temperatures will range from 25 to 28 degrees.
The Meteorological Centre in Malaga indicates that the regions of Antequera, Ronda and, most of all, the Guadalhorce valley, will be the ones to suffer the thermic increase the most, specially between Thursday and Friday. Coín marked 26 degrees yesterday, and well carry on rising. The reason for this, explained by meteorologists, is the conjunction of various phenomena: clear skies, with a strong and prolonged sunshine; the high southern wind, and the time of the year. The east wind will also contribute to this, as it calms when it’s near the sea and heats in high areas.
Furthermore, until now the month has been resulting rather chilly, with average maximum temperatures of 21.3 degrees, which is, 2.5 less than normal, which is why as from now it will tend to stabilise. This situation will remain, at least, until next weekend, that will almost be like summer and it seems like it’s going to cause the first large crowds of people on the beaches of the season.
The change of tendency is produced after two consecutive weekends of rain, that have left up to 80 litres per square meter accumulated in points of the Ronda mountains. As it reflects, the water picked up from the last day of April and, mainly, last Saturday, has allowed a reduction of 10% of the hydric deficit in the Antequera Vega, which is the most affected region by the drought. In spite all of this, between 50 and 60% of the average has rained in the province of Malaga this year.
