Fiery future: Forecast predicts Andalucia will keep getting hotter

ANDALUCIA residents should prepare to get even hotter under the collar than they already are, as climate experts are forecasting spiralling temperatures in years to come.  

A long-term weather projection by the Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change predicts a 3.9% average temperature increase over the next century, together with an alarming 26% decrease in the amount of rainfall.

Andalucia’s current yearly average temperature is 19 degrees Celsius and the report suggests that is set to rise by up to another sizzling 4 degrees.

The aim of the long-term forecast is to predict human activity in order to plan future water supply and agricultural production.

With the region set to become increasingly arid, a large-scale agricultural shift will most likely follow at some point in the next 100 years.

  1. It is such a joy to own a swimming pool and a nice garden in Spain lol. In most towns in Andalucía you cannot use a hose or fill a pool, or water your plants, unless you want a 3000-1000 euro fine. Big rains coming of course…
