According to AMET, the State Meteorological Agency, Malaga registered the hottest night of the year and the hottest night across the country with an average temperature of 31.7 degrees Celcius.
The province was already under a yellow warning in several areas and the last 12 hours of the day were some of the highest temperatures across the nation.
If you were struggling to get to sleep, this explains things, as at 12.00am the heat rose to a maximum of 32 degrees, new records for the province.
Costa del Sol’s Malaga has been experiencing hot African winds known as terral for almost 48 consecutive hours which is what triggers these increased temperatures.
