Valencia beach. / DAmián Torres Activated the red warning for temperatures that can reach 44 degrees during the central hours of the day The heat wave is here. From this Saturday morning, the Aemet red warning is activated for maximum temperatures that will clearly exceed 40 degrees during the central hours of the day. Unlike other episodes of extreme heat, this wave will not last but will leave surprisingly high records in various parts of the Community. In the latest update of the Aemet forecast for the entire August bridge, the indications for the city of Valencia have worsened significantly, at which point the mercury could exceed 40 degrees. The west will leave highs in the central regions of the Community that will touch 44 degrees. Aemet has already warned that “the hottest day of the summer” will be recorded. But not everything is hot, but storms are expected that could be with hail and very strong gusts of wind. For this Saturday, a slightly cloudy sky is expected in the morning, with a cloudy sky with medium and high clouds, in addition to the cloudiness of daytime evolution that will cause the probability of rain to increase significantly. Scattered showers and storms may be recorded in the evening hours, preferably in inland areas of the provinces of Castellón and Valencia, without ruling out that they may become locally strong, accompanied by hail and with very strong gusts of wind. The entire province of Alicante and the entire coastline and south of the province of Valencia have activated the red warning for maximum temperatures that will be between 40 and 42 degrees, and may reach 44 degrees in a timely manner. In the northern interior of the province of Valencia and the entire coastline and southern fringe of Castellón, the yellow warning is activated for maximum records of 37 degrees. On Sunday the heat wave ends but it will not stop being hot. The initial forecast is that maximum temperatures close to 40 degrees will no longer be recorded. There is going to be a noticeable drop in mercury which will change the situation from ‘extreme heat’ to ‘very hot’. This explains why the provinces of Valencia and Alicante, in their entirety, have activated the yellow warning for maximum temperatures between 36 and 38 degrees. For this day, a slightly cloudy sky is expected with intervals of medium and high clouds, with cloudiness of daytime evolution in mountain areas. Probable scattered and occasional showers and thunderstorms are expected in the afternoon in inland areas, preferably in points of Castellón and Alicante, without ruling out that they may reach the coast in isolation. Aemet adds: chance of light haze. Monday, the holiday for the Assumption of the Virgin, is expected to be a day with slightly cloudy or clear skies, with intervals of medium and high clouds. In the interior of the province of Castellón cloudiness of daytime evolution will grow without ruling out the possibility of a shower or isolated storm. The trend for next week is that the maximum temperatures continue to decline gradually, but falling. They could lose more than 10 degrees in a week, since the current forecast by Aemet for the Valencian Community is that the maximum for next Thursday, August 18, will be 31 degrees.
