30.06.11. Here is a new weekend and some changes in weather are forecasted for the Costa Tropical granadina. I’m going to tell you.

Synopsis: weather forecast runs are pointing to some little changes in weather that will take place in our Costa Tropical next weekend. In this way, a shortwave trough is forecasted to move over the Iberian Peninsula by Sunday; this kind of atmospheric pattern is associated to moderate to strong west-southwestern (WSW) winds along the coastal-line of our region. Then, we can expect moderate to strong WSW winds by Sunday, since midday. Anyway, lets go with the details:

Tomorrow: low clouds could reach the coastal-line in the morning. Moreover, some cloudiness at medium & high levels is expected, dissipating with the pass of time. Some high & medium level clouds could persist after that. Wind will blow firstly from the NE, especially along the main valleys and the coastal-line. At middle morning it could turn to ESE, with some moderate gust. Since the afternoon, a diurnal breeze regime could stablish, with weak southwestern wind, along the coastal-line, S inland, weak as well.


Sea surface temperature (coastal waters): 23ºC

Sunday: few clouds or no clouds in the sky. The shortwave trough at high levels will be crossing over the Iberian Peninsula, so there will be some changes in wind speed and direction. In this way, wind will blow firstly from N, weakly, especially along the main valleys and the coastal-line. With the pass of time it will turn to WSW, especially along the coastal-line, blowing moderately and even strongly. There will be a high chance that it will turn to NW at last. It means that it could suffer an adiabatic compression over some places of our region, with quick temperature rises (it is very difficult to forecast).
