The situation of instability will persist in the Community and the rainfall will last at least until this Friday
The skies of the Region of Murcia have been dyed gray for several days and are expected to continue like this at least until this Friday. There are many citizens who have wondered why it has been so many days without the sun rising in the Region of Murcia, because there is an explanation. The situation of persistent instability in the Community is due to “an anticyclonic blockage in the northernmost area of Europe that means that the storms cannot circulate as far north as would be usual at this time and are forced to move to latitudes more to the south”, explains to THE TRUTH José Antonio Parodi, meteorologist of the State Meteorological Agency (Aemet) of the Region of Murcia.
«In these latitudes further south is the Region of Murcia. As long as the anticyclone does not move, the situation of successive passage of storms causes the instability associated with the storms to lengthen. These storms give rise to “instability in the atmosphere, which is what causes the rains.” In these circumstances, it is possible that “the wind is of maritime origin, which is when it rains the most in the Region of Murcia,” says Parodi.
As the meteorologist explains, “sometimes the storms pass, but if we don’t have that wind that adds moisture to the atmosphere from precipitation, it hardly rains, but in this case it is accompanied by sea wind and that is what is producing these persistent rains of the last days”. The wind will increase its intensity for Wednesday, especially to the southwest of the peninsula.
The storm surge continues
“This passage of storms will continue” so it will continue to rain for the next few days, especially this Wednesday. The Aemet launched a yellow notice throughout the Region of Murcia, except the Altiplano, for this Wednesday. The rains are expected to discharge up to 15 liters per square meter in an hour. In the case of Vega del Segura, the Aemet warns that rainfall can leave up to 70 liters per square meter in 12 hours in Vega del Segura.
On Wednesday it will rain more intensely, since “an intense storm that will enter through the southwest of the peninsula will reinforce the instability and above all the higher moisture content in the atmosphere.” “Widespread showers are expected that can be locally strong and persistent, accompanied by winds that can be occasionally strong on the coast, associated with that wind of maritime origin that is reinforced by the storm,” according to Parodi.
The instability will persist until Friday, although it is expected that these precipitations will subside by the end of the day. “On Thursday it is possible that there will be some clearings, normally these clearings are usually opened between one step of a storm and another and there is a day of break in which it may not rain one day.”
new episode of haze
It is expected that another “haze intrusion will be repeated from this Wednesday until Friday, although not as intense as the episode experienced last week.” In terms of air quality, “it will not be so adverse because it will be precipitating with the rain, which will not be noticeable as much in terms of the air we breathe, but it will possibly be noticeable in the rain” that can fall accompanied by mud, concludes the meteorologist.
