Two warm air masses, the Poniente and the Tropical marítimo, are the cause of the unusually high temperatures at the moment. Early Tuesday night was the warmest that this area has been since October 8th, 1921.
The start of autumn follows the driest September experienced since 1983. Normally, September is wet with an average of 47 litres per square metre, this year we only had 3 litres of rain.
The warm weather is expected to last until the weekend when the Levante will cool things down.
