THIS summer has been cooler than any in recent years.
The warm summer winds typical of the season have been replaced by colder easterly winds, keeping the temperatures along the coast an average of 1.5 degrees lower than normal.
According to data just released by a meteorological centre in Malaga, on the hottest day of this month (July 10), temperatures only reached 35.5 degrees, surprisingly mild for this time of year.
According to the director of the centre, some people have even been phoning in to ‘complain about how cold it is.’
In Andalucia, this means lower water temperatures as well.
Though this may be less than ideal for some bathers, it has also had the effect of lowering levels of jellyfish as well.
