“It is very hot for the season we are in. It has come suddenly." The State Meteorological Agency (Aemet) confirms the perception of the residents of Valencia and of the tourists who visit the capital of the Turia this May and have found a time more typical of summer than spring.
All in all, the breezes coming from the Mediterranean will mitigate the sensation of heat in Valencia in an episode that could leave the highest temperatures in a month of May in the last twenty years.
The Aemet expects the maximum heat peak for next Sunday, May 22, when the mercury will exceed thirty degrees. The arrival in Spain of a mass of warm air from North Africa together with atmospheric stability will be behind the rise in temperatures.
The weather in Valencia has left a stamp of beaches full of bathers. In this regard, some tourists from Italy and Chile have assured that they did not expect that in the month of May they would have to face "so much heat" during their vacations: "We knew that June or July was the peak of the heat, so We thought that May would be cooler, but in the end all the heat has caught us ».
