  • Waves of up three metres are being forecast by Aemet for this Thursday

After a few days of high temperatures, the weather on the Costa del Sol Malaga will take a downturn from this Wednesday evening (7 April).

An instability in the weather will increase the probability of showers in different parts of the province.

For Thursday Aemet has activated a yellow warning for rough seas on the Costa del Sol from 3am to 4pm and waves of up to three metres are forecast.

Weather expert José Luis Escudero on his Storms and Lightning blog says, “As of tonight there is a probability of weak and occasional showers on the coast of Malaga and in the Guadalhorce valley. This is due to the humid east wind and the cold air that we have in the upper layers of the atmosphere.”

In addition, there will be gusts of wind that could reach 15 to 20 kilometres per hour while a drop in maximum temperatures is expected throughout Malaga province. On Thursday they could drop from the 24 degrees reached a few days ago to 17 in Malaga city.

As of Friday, however, Aemet says they will progressively rise again to 18 degrees, 19 on Saturday and 22 on Sunday. The minimum temperatures, meanwhile, will hover between 13 and 15 degrees during the remainder of the week.
