Amber alerts activated for high temperatures in Malaga province this Sunday

Spain’s state weather agency, Aemet, has also issued red warnings for two provinces in the Andalucía region this 24 July, for temperatures up to 45 degrees

The extreme high temperatures will continue to affect Malaga province in the coming days. On Saturday Antequera was on an amber alert because 40 degrees were expected, and the Serranía de Ronda on a yellow warning for a maximum of 39. And, this Sunday and Monday, the situation will not improve - but actually worsen in some areas.

The Antequera region will remain on amber alert for high temperatures both today, 24 July, and Monday as the mercury could reach 40C. The Serranía de Ronda will find itself in the same situation, although on Monday the level will drop to yellow, despite the fact that thermometers are expected to reach 39-40 degrees.

But the Aemet weather warnings are not the only thing of concern. The meteorology expert José Luis Escudero anticipates on his SUR blog 'Storms and lightning', the first terral of this summer could arrive on Monday in some of the usual areas where this local Malaga wind blows.
