The province of Malaga endured a very hot weekend, with a new *terral episode that forced the State Meteorological Agency (Aemet) to activate the yellow warning for high temperatures.

Although the heat was constant all weekend, the worst day was Saturday, which caused the thermometers to go off the scale and read close to 40 degrees in some places. The maximum temperature was registered in Vélez-Málaga at 3:00 p.m., where 39.6 degrees were reached. Very close were Estepona and Malaga Airport, which registered values ​​of 37.7 and 37.6 degrees, respectively.

* The Terral is a catabatic wind that brings with it an increase in temperatures and a decrease in humidity that increases the risk of heatstroke in humans and animals and fires in the summer period.
