hottest summer

Hottest summer ever?

The AEMET advances the possibility of having the hottest summer ever.

The Agency also reports that spring has been the driest since 1961.

The State Meteorological Agency (AEMET) predicts, with a probability of 70% or more, that this summer will be warmer than normal and one of the hottest in recent years in the Canary Islands, according to the climatological balance of the spring made public this Monday by the subdelegate of the Government, Javier Plata, and the director of the Meteorological Center of the AEMET in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Victor Quintero.

As for spring, it has been found that the March-April-May quarter has been the warmest since 1961, with an average temperature of 19.6ºC in the province of Las Palmas – thermal anomaly of 1.8ºC – and 17.1ºC in Santa Cruz de Tenerife – +2ºC.

There have been very warm temperatures in virtually all areas of the archipelago and compared to March and April, the warmest since 1961, May has been the eleventh warmest since that year.

Thus, records were broken in Arona (Tenerife), with 37.5ºC on March 31, in Mogán (Gran Canaria), with 37.1ºC a day earlier and in Los Llanos de Aridane (La Palma), which reached 36.5ºC, also on the 31st.

The Aemet also points out that spring has been the driest since 1961 – especially in the northeast of Tenerife – with 21% of normal rainfall and 11 liters per square meter that correspond to 4.5 liters in the eastern province and 18.9 in the west.

This August becomes the warmest since there are records in the Canary Islands.

This is the hottest summer ever recorded by the AEMET that began 62 years ago with 2.3 degrees above average

The reality of climate change has come to stay on the islands, and in this way every summer records of temperatures and heat waves are broken, and "what remains to come", warn meteorologists.

In this way, the islands have closed less than a week ago their hottest August at least since 1961, where the reference series used by the State Meteorological Agency begins, in addition to the hottest month on record.

Specifically, this past August has been 2.3 degrees warmer than average, which places it as an "extremely warm" month.

The average temperature was 2.3 degrees higher in the province of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, by 2.4 degrees higher in the province of Las Palmas. The maximum measures are also higher in the eastern province with 2.8 degrees more, by 2.6 of the western province.

The highest temperature reached this August was recorded in El Hierro, with 46.2 degrees on the 12th in the area of Tacorón-Lapillas. Not far behind the one registered in La Aldea on the same day, with 45.8.

The Gran Canaria tourist area of Playa del Inglés reached 45.2 degrees and above 43 in midland areas of the island. Above 40 degrees, thermometers were recorded at the airport of Lanzarote or La Gomera, in the port of Morrojable (Fuerteventura), at the Time viewpoint in La Palma or in the area of Las Mercedes-Llano Los Loros, in Tenerife.

In August, two warm episodes were identified, one between August 10 and 14, as well as a second between August 20 and 26, with a small parenthesis on the 25th.
