The weather in Valencia: the heat wave gives way this Tuesday to the alert for storms and a thermal slump

The unusual heat wave on these dates and that the State Meteorological Agency (AEMET) has concluded this Sunday will give way this Tuesday to a thermal slump and the alert (yellow warning) for storms and rains in Valencia, Alicante and Castellón.

The destabilization of the atmosphere will mean that, in addition to these precipitations, wind and coastal phenomena will be registered that will put a dozen Mediterranean provinces at risk, including those of the Valencian Community.

Specifically, the risk (yellow warning) due to rain, which can accumulate 20 liters per square meter in one hour, will remain activated this Tuesday in Barcelona, ​​Gerona, Lérida, Teruel, Castellón, Valencia, Alicante.

In the rest of the Peninsula, cloudy intervals and cloudiness of evolution are expected and showers and storms are expected in the south of the Iberian system and in the Valencian Community.

The wind will blow from the north and northeast in the Mediterranean area, with strong intervals.

Instead, the thermometers have touched and even exceeded the maximum 35 degrees this Monday in several municipalities of the Valencian Community, as in the case of Elche (35.3º), Xàtiva (34.9º) and Orihuela (34.7º) , waiting for the generalized decrease that will be locally notable in the case of the maximum and scattered showers with occasional storms forecast for this Tuesday.

The heat has been repeated during this day throughout the territory, where about twenty municipalities have exceeded the maximum temperature barrier of 30 degrees. Elche, Xàtiva and Orihuela are followed in the ranking by Alicante (34.4º), Valencia airport (34.4º), Llíria (34.3º) and Novelda (34.1º), according to data from the State Agency for Meteorology (Aemet), collected by Europa Press.

The observatories at Alicante-Elche airport (33.9º), Rojales (33.9º), Miramar (33.6º), Ontinyent (33.5º), Polinyà de Xúquer (33.5º), Turís (33.5º), Pego (33.3º), Xàbia (33.0º) and Valencia (32.6º).

The high records have continued this Monday after a weekend during which the maximum 30 degrees in Alicante and Castelló de la Plana have been exceeded for the first time in 2022. And this Monday they have been overcome for the first time in Valencia.

In fact, in the collection of dates for each year when the 30 degree threshold was first reached in Valencia, the linear trend line shows that, on average, this threshold is now reached more than a month earlier than before. beginning of the 20th century.

Thus, since 1900, the earliest date of the year to reach 30º at the Valencia observatory was March 2, 1987 (30.0º) and the latest was August 3, 1919 (32.6º).

The heat will stop being so pronounced in the face of this Tuesday, when general drops in temperatures are expected, which will be locally notable in the case of the maximums. And it is that the “really anomalous” thing has been the heat of these days, given that the decrease on Tuesday “will return the maximum temperatures to the normal values ​​of the end of May,” explains Aemet.

In addition, as of Tuesday afternoon, scattered showers with occasional storms are expected, which will be less likely in the south of Alicante, but may be locally strong in the south of Valencia, north of Alicante and in the interior of Castellón.
