  • Aemet has activated yellow warnings for storms and strong wind gusts in four in Andalusian provinces, and there could be 'muddy' showers too

The month of August is drawing to end in Spain with an increase in the likelihood of rain, showers and storms, especially in the centre and east of the mainland although, however, the high temperatures will continue.

This is reflected in the latest outlook from the State Meteorological Agency (Aemet) which forecasts that the last week of this month will be marked by an increase in atmospheric instability - although it will continue to be hot, both day and night, across much of the country.

In Andalucía, yellow warnings for storms and strong gusts of wind have been activated on Tuesday, 24 August, in Córdoba, Jaén, Granada and Almería provinces. Specifically, the alerts will affect, from 12 noon to 10pm, the Sierra and Pedroches (Cordoba), Morena and Condado, Cazorla and Segura (Jaén); Guadix and Baza (Granada) and in the Almanzora Valley and Los Vélez (Almería).

Muddy showers

In addition, Aemet has announced, on Tuesday suspended dust will also reach the mainland, which will be more noticeable in the southern half of the country, where the air quality will worsen and will cause some of the showers to be ‘muddy’.

On the other hand, with regard to temperatures, they will drop especially in the central and southern areas, although they will exceed 36 degrees in southern Galicia and in the Tagus, Guadiana and Guadalquivir valleys. Night time temperatures will also continue to remain high, especially in Extremadura and Andalucía, where in some points they will not drop below 22 degrees.
