  • The state Met Office has activated yellow weather alerts, from 1pm this Wednesday, in the Malaga, Guadalhorce and Axarquia areas

A local weather phenomena - the terral wind - will, once again, blow hot air into Malaga province this Wednesday (8 September). Experts predict temperatures will soar and the mercury could even hit 37 degrees.

According to the forecast from the state meteorological agency, Aemet, the heat will be felt more in the Malaga city, Guadalhorce and Axarquía areas where maximum temperatures of up to 37 degrees are expected and where yellow weather warnings for high temperatures will be activated, from 1pm to 9pm.

Everything indicates that the temperatures will remain high on Thursday, despite strong gusts of wind along the Malaga coast, according to the meteorology expert, José Luis Escudero.

“Where the terral blows the maximums will be between 33 and 35 degrees. In the Ronda and Antequera regions it will be between 27 and 30 degrees. The probability of rain is zero”, he assures on his SUR blog 'Storms and Lightning'.

The meteorological situation will change little for Friday, although in the areas where the terral hits it may be a few degrees more. "The maximums will be between 35 and 37 degrees," says Escudero.
