Within less than 24 hours we will go from almost unbearably sweltering heat with an orange alert for high temperatures, to an orange alert for heavy rain from the Spanish State Meteorological Agency (AEMET) for all of Alicante province.
The forecasts indicate there could be up to 40 litres per square metre tomorrow, Wednesday August 9th and the day after, Thursday the 10th. The Mastral Project reported that AEMET has also issued a yellow alert for storms, and on Thursday for waves which could reach up to three metres in height.
It will be in the early hours of Wednesday morning when significant meteorological changes are expected. The temperatures will drop notably but the maximums will still remain at about 30 degrees Centigrade.
The instability will persist until Thursday afternoon. That day the temperatures will drop more and the maximums may not reach 26 or 27°C, giving us a brief respite after these last few weeks of fierce heat, according to the Mastral Project.
