The State Meteorological Agency warns that temperatures will continue to rise in the Mediterranean area and the Canary Islands, an increase that will be notable in the south of the Levant
The provinces of Murcia, Alicante and Valencia will have red warnings this Monday (extreme risk) for maximum temperatures, according to the prediction of the State Meteorological Agency (Aemet) for this Monday, July 12, between 12 and 21 hours.
Specifically, in the Region of Murcia, Aemet has activated red in Vega del Segura-Murcia due to temperatures of 44º; the orange warning for the Guadalentín Valley, Lorca and Águilas for temperatures of 43º; and yellow for the Altiplano and the Northwest for temperatures of up to 39º and in Campo de Cartagena and Mazarrón for a temperature that can reach 38 degrees.
On the other hand, it has issued warnings for coastal phenomena for the Guadalentín Valley, Lorca and Águilas, from 15 to 21 hours, due to southwest winds with intervals of force 7; and also for Campo de Cartagena and Mazarrón for the same reason.
Extreme heat in the south of the Levante
According to the Agency, temperatures will continue to rise this Monday in the Mediterranean area and the Canary Islands, an increase that will be notable in the south of the Levant, where 40º C will be exceeded and, locally, 43º C or 44º C could be reached in the Region of Murcia, as well as in the provinces of Alicante and Valencia. It is also expected that 37º C will be exceeded in Malaga and other areas in the extreme southeast of the peninsula, as well as 34º C or 36º C in the Balearic and Canary Islands.
In this sense, the Aemet has activated warnings for heat in: the provinces of Almería and Málaga, as well as the Balearic islands of Ibiza, Formentera and Mallorca, which will have warnings of an orange level (significant risk); and in yellow level (risk) will be the island of Menorca and Albacete.
However, in the rest of the Peninsula, temperatures will experience a very sharp drop, which will be extraordinary for daytime temperatures on the northern plateau and upper Ebro, with temperatures lower than usual at this time in the northwest of the peninsula.
During the day, there will be a predominance of slightly cloudy or clear skies in most of the country. However, in the north of Galicia, Cantabrian and Pyrenees, cloudy skies or covered with rainfall are expected, more abundant in the eastern Cantabrian, and may be accompanied by an occasional storm in the eastern Pyrenees.
Some weak, scattered and occasional precipitation is not ruled out in other parts of the extreme north of the peninsula, and some isolated storm in mountain areas of the Mediterranean area and the peaks of the Canary Islands, dry or with little precipitation, although accompanied by very strong gusts of wind. . Intervals of medium and high clouds are also expected in the first half of the day in the northern half and extreme southeast of the peninsula and in the Balearic Islands.
Likewise, it is probable that haze will occur in the Canary Islands and in the southeast of the peninsula, without this phenomenon being ruled out in other parts of the southern half and central zone, tending to dissipate during the day, except in the Canary Islands.
With respect to the wind, it will be of west and north components in the Peninsula and the Balearic Islands, with strong intervals in the Cantabrian and Mediterranean coast of the peninsula, Strait, mountains of the extreme southeast, Menorca, and in the middle and lower Ebro. And they will be trade winds in the Canary Islands.
The wind will warn Tarragona and Castellón for a yellow level (risk). And it will cause bad seas in Almería and Girona, where yellow level warnings have been decreed for coastal phenomena (waves).
