The temperatures at the weekend were high; the young meteorologist José Pedro Gomez recorded a high of 38.4 degrees Celsius in Orihuela on Sunday but at least the air was dry. The wind has now changed as is coming from the east (the Levante) bringing cooler weather but is is also a lot more humid.
He goes on to say that there is a chance of a shower or two over next weekend but points out that the city has had 47 days consecutive with rainfall below one litre per square meter. In other words, a shower or two will not affect the drought figures for this month. His forecasts show that will continue to be the trend for this summer.
That brings me back to the question, “which is worse, hot and dry or cooler and humid?”
