Costa del Sol looks forward to a summer weekend

Nerja, Malaga Province, Andalusia, Spain

Today, especially inland, Malaga province in Spain will see the last effects of Storm Oscar before a summer weekend begins

The sun is forecast to return on Friday, June 9, bringing with it the almost 30-degree temperatures that were the norm until this damp three-week period ended in mid-May.

With extensive downpours at this unusual start to the meteorological summer (the astronomical one won’t arrive until the 21st), floods started to pound the province in the early hours of Wednesday, June 8. The mostly light rains lasted for the majority of the day, but there weren’t many visible accumulations.

Alfarnatejo set the highest marks for the Junta’s Hidrosur network, with just over 13mm of rain, followed by Alcaucn with 11mm, Archidona with over 10mm, Villanueva de la Concepción and the Benamargosa River with about 7mm, and the Trapiche treatment plant with 6.6mm. With 6.5mm, the La Viuela reservoir had the same amount of rainfall as the Casasola, Los Montes de Málaga, and Colmenar reservoirs for the first time in a very long time.

The reservoirs, however, have not recorded any gains and, instead, have continued to lose reserves, specifically in the province, with two cubic hectometres fewer than the previous volume. However, it’s not bad news, a recent report stated that there are 2 years of water available in the reservoirs.

This unusually cold and humid start to June, which has persisted since mid-May, will continue at least through today, according to the state weather agency Aemet, which forecasts that Storm Ophelia storm’s effects will be felt even more strongly in inland sections of Malaga province.

Although there are differences across the models, it is anticipated that the weather fronts may deposit additional water. There will be heavy rainfall over the province, especially in mountainous areas, but no storms are forecast. It will rain, but we’ll have to wait to see how much and where it falls, according to Jess Riesco, the director of the Aemet meteorological centre.

The latest update of the European model places the greatest likelihood of heavy downpours in the northern part of the Antequera region, bordering the province of Seville, where they could deposit about 30mm, warns José Luis Escudero, head of the SUR weather blog Tormentas y Rayos (storms and lightning). However, it rains very seldom from there on down, in the Axarqua and the Guadalhorce Valley on the coast of Malaga, unless it’s in the mountains. It conforms to the American model in this way, which lowers it to a range of 5 to 10mm.

Up until midday on Friday, something could still be some rainfall in the early morning hours. However, the heat will return, without any cloudy skies!
