Very hot weekend and high risk of fires, alert from Civil Protection Totana (05/07/2019)

The Totana Civil Protection Meteorological Unit informs that the southeast of Spain is going to live a complicated situation this weekend.

The combination of dry, hot weather and dry storms will make the fire risk very high.

As we announced earlier this week, the first weekend of July will be hot.

Temperatures will be around 38/39 ºC maximum in most of the Region of Murcia, being able to reach 40 ºC somewhere in the Guadalentín Valley and in Las Vegas del Segura (from Calasparra to Murcia), where locally it can not be ruled out that reach 42 ºC.

Therefore, the AEMET has activated for Saturday morning the orange warning by temperatures of 40 ºC in the Vega del Segura and the yellow warning by 39 ºC in the rest of the Region of Murcia (except in the littoral zone).

For Sunday, the yellow warning is now activated by maximum of 39 ºC throughout the Region (except on the coast), but these notices are likely to change tomorrow with the updates.


Tomorrow afternoon there will also be storms in the interior, especially in the Altiplano and in the Northwest.

For this reason, the orange warning has been activated in these regions due to storms and strong winds of up to 90 km / h associated with these storms.

Where they occur, the electrical apparatus will be abundant and there will be little or no rainfall, so storms will be dry and can cause hot bursting (sudden rise in temperature, low humidity and strong gusty winds).

With this situation, the rays can cause fires and the strong wind and the dryness of the land and the environment can spread them quickly.

Sunday also can produce storms in the interior.

They will be more frequent in the more interior areas, but it can not be ruled out that they affect other more central areas.


As we usually do, we leave you in the images a series of recommendations for both risks.

This weekend, avoid any activity likely to cause fires and
