Heat gets worse with African air in Spain

Madrid / The first heat wave of the summer, with air of African origin, will arrive to the peninsula and the Balearic Islands next Wednesday, as announced by the State Meteorological Agency (Aemet).

 

 
“This thermal rise is due to the entry of very warm air of African origin together with the conditions of atmospheric stability and the strong insolation typical of these dates,” says the Aemet in a press release.

According to Aemet, “will exceed 35 ºC in large areas of the interior of the peninsula; it is even quite likely that they reach or exceed 40 ºC in areas of the centre, interior of the southern half and north-east quadrant. In coastal areas, due to the maritime influence, temperatures will not reach such high values”.

“The valleys of the Ebro, Tajo, Guadiana and Guadalquivir will be the areas most affected by this episode of heat, where the thermal values could reach or even exceed 42 ° C in some places. The greater probability of exceeding 42 ºC in a fairly generalized manner corresponds to the Ebro valley on Thursday, Friday and Saturday,” it adds.

According to the AEMET, “the minimum temperatures will also be significantly high, staying above 20 ° C in large areas, and may even not lower than 25 ° C in the southern half and central peninsular, Ebro valley and Mediterranean area”.

“In the Balearic Islands, it will be possible to exceed 35 ° C, especially in the interior of Mallorca, the Canary Islands, Ceuta and Melilla; while, probably, the communities of Galicia, Asturias and Cantabria, will not be affected by this situation, “according to the statement, which adds that:” It is likely that high temperatures persist, at least until Sunday, day 30, but Aemet indicates that it isn’t ruled out that they can be extended during the first days of July in some areas. ”

“Due to the intensity and duration of the episode, this situation will be qualified as a heat wave, with the corresponding special warning being issued in the coming days,” concludes the Aemet statement. (June 24, 2019, EFE/Practica Español)
