Summer Arrives Early In Malaga


The early summer will arrive in Spain’s Malaga starting from Monday, with highs of 33 degrees predicted for Pizarra

No coats or umbrellas needed in Malaga as like almost all of Andalucia, it leaves behind the atmospheric instability, the necessary rains, and the cold of the past weeks as an early summer is forecast.

From this Sunday, April 15, high pressure systems will prevail throughout the region, leading to a new weather change characterised by stability and heat. Temperatures will rise and reach, in some areas, such as the Guadalhorce Valley, 33 degrees. This will be the case in Pizarra.

Heading into the weekend, the atmosphere will continue to be sunny and hot. The entry of a warm air mass will cause temperatures to begin rising from tomorrow, Saturday. The east wind, known as ‘levante’ along the Mediterranean coast, will blow. In Malaga capital, the mercury will reach 25 or 26 degrees. In inland areas, such as Antequera, the highs will be around 28 degrees. According to the director of the Meteorological Center of Malaga, Jesus Riesco, the mercury will remain “slightly above normal temperatures” in spring.

From Wednesday onwards, the forecast suggests that once again, the heat will ease off and maximum temperatures will drop, although they will still be above normal values.

A sunny map and mild temperatures this Friday

For today, Meteorology expects a sunny map with mild temperatures, typical of spring, around 20 degrees in coastal areas and below that value inland. It’s the lull before the expected rise in temperatures for Saturday and Sunday, and especially at the beginning of next week.

For now, the weather forecast for this day from the State Meteorological Agency (Aemet) suggests there will be partly cloudy or clear skies, with intervals of morning low clouds on the coast. Light easterly winds are expected, with moderate intervals on the western coast and in the Antequera region.

Moreover, over the years, Spain, including Malaga, has experienced increasing temperatures attributed to climate change, intensifying the heatwaves and making early summers more common occurrences. This trend poses challenges for agriculture, water resources, and public health, requiring proactive measures to adapt to the changing climate conditions.

Catalonia may be going through the worst drought on record for the area, however, the southern region of Andalucía has faced continuous drought since 2016. In 2023, Spain’s droughts ranked among the 10 most costly climate disasters in the world, according to a report by Christian Aid.
