Malaga – Costa del Sol | Yellow weather alert in the province of Malaga this Sunday for rising temperatures
Aemet has activated warnings in 19 Spanish provinces due to the escalating mercury, including all of Andalusia – except Almeria
The week will end with higher temperatures again in the province of Malaga – in particular in the Antequera region, which could reach 38 degrees this Sunday August 21. For this reason, Spain’s national weather agency Aemet has activated the yellow warning for high temperatures in this area, and it will remain in effect from 1 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Meanwhile, the city of Malaga will evolve between the forecasts of 31 degrees maximum and 22 minimum, while the lowest values for this August 21 are expected in Marbella, where the thermometer will not exceed 27 degrees (although there are will have a minimum of 21C).
Aemet’s forecast also calls for lightly cloudy to clear skies, except for a few intervals of low cloud and haze on the Costa del Sol, where fog banks are likely to form. Minimum temperatures will remain unchanged while maximum temperatures will increase, which will be particularly noticeable in inland areas.
Weather alerts in 19 provinces
In the rest of Spain, there will be 19 provinces that will be on yellow or orange alert due to the heat, according to Europa Press. Specifically, Cadiz, Cordoba, Granada, Huelva, Jaén, Malaga and Seville, in Andalusia, will be at risk due to high temperatures, as will Ávila, in Castile and León; Albacete, Cuenca and Toledo, in Castile-La Mancha, and Badajoz and Cáceres, in Extremadura.
The same is expected in Madrid and Murcia, as well as in Alicante and Valencia, in the Valencian Community, while in the Canary Islands there will also be a high temperature alert in the province of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, in La Gomera, El Hierro, Tenerife and La Palma. The heat alert will change to orange in Gran Canaria, in the province of Las Palmas, where Lanzarote and Fuerteventura will also be on alert (yellow) due to the maximum temperature.
In general, minimum temperatures will increase, with maximums decreasing in the northwestern third of the peninsula and increasing in the rest of the country. Up to 39 degrees are expected in provincial capitals such as Cordoba, Granada or Seville.
On the other hand, thunderstorms will put the provinces of Barcelona and Girona on alert this Sunday (yellow). In eastern Catalonia and the Pyrenees, showers and thunderstorms of greater intensity are expected.
During this time, cloudy periods are expected in the northern third of the peninsula, more abundant in the Cantabrian zone, where light rain is likely, and cloudy periods, mainly medium and high clouds , are expected in the Canary Islands.
In the rest of the country, slightly cloudy or clear skies will prevail, although there will be intervals of high clouds in the northern half of the peninsula and the Balearic Islands, and low clouds in the Strait of Alborán and the coasts. Also in the afternoon, intervals of clouds could evolve in the south of the Iberian system and in the extreme northeast of the peninsula, with the probability of causing a shower or a storm.
In addition, Aemet warns of the likelihood of morning fog banks in the Cantabrian region and inland Galicia and does not rule out haze in the Canary Islands.
