the movement that will decide the next heat wave or the end of summer

  • 35

We are still waiting for the predictions because this week is a key week. Everything seems to indicate towards the middle of the week a DANA will be located off the west coast of the peninsula. That will cause storms, cloudiness and showers; but, at the end of the week, the movement of that DANA will decide our near future: Heat wave or climatological end of summer?

That is the question and the countdown has begun.

The really weird thing about this summer. Heat waves are obviously nothing new: however, what has happened this year is relatively unusual. When a wave ended, we could enjoy a few ‘cool’ days caused by an ‘intrusion’ of air coming from areas closer to the polar currents. This year we have not had such days. We have combined heat wave days (32 so far) with standard heat days and that has caused some thermal exhaustion.

The countdown to massive water cuts has begun: the other consequence of extreme heat in Spain

The good news. It remains to be seen if finally on August 15 we will experience a new episode of extreme heat. The models continue to say that there is a high probability that after this week’s storms, the climatological summer take your last hit at the end of the week, but (if it happens) it seems that it will be something relatively short. That’s the good news: it’s becoming clearer that the middle of the month will honor his fame and bring about a change of time.

If we are lucky, in fact, we will see the entrance of a cold trough that will cause “a temperature drop that would start in the north and spread throughout Spain except the Canary Islands.”

The cold and the Mediterranean. This has as a positive element the relaxation of the maximum temperatures, yes; but it will start a whole new bunch of problems related to the traditional ‘cold drops’ in Levante that, today, with the Mediterranean suffering its particular heat wave, can cause historic torrential rains.

The piece that will decide everything. Ultimately, it all depends on only one thing: the relative situation of the Atlantic DANA. If the DANA approaches us, the temperature will drop and we can expect rain; if DANA stays west of the Portuguese coast, the heat will stay with us. It is not a novelty either, it is what has been happening all summer. In fact, the persistence of DANAs in the west of the peninsula is what has condemned us to so many hot days. The unknown is what will happen now.
