THE year 2019 has been the third warmest in history in Malaga. It is tied with 2016 with an average temperature of 19.6 degrees Celsius. The record is held by 2014, the year in which the thermometers registered an average of 19.9 degrees Celsius. These details are provided by José María Sánchez-Laulhé, Jefe de Predicción
of the Centro Meteorológico de Málaga, who said “In this last decade, thermometers have reached the highest levels due to the global warming we are experiencing.”
It should also be remembered that 2019 was the driest year in Malaga in which about 181.2 litres per square metre were registered at the end of the year, about 344 litres below the average.
Globally, 2019 has been the warmest since 1880.
Last year, it was 0.98 degrees Celsius warmer than the average from 1951 to 1980, according to scientists from NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) in New York.
