Unseasonably high temperatures in the past few days have ironically been causing problems at Malaga airport, with four flights forced to divert yesterday afternoon due to foggy conditions.

Temperatures of 4 or 5 degrees centigrade above the average for this time of year helps produce the fog and mist, which is caused by warm wet air meeting colder air. The sudden drop in temperature causes water droplets to form. This is a common phenomenon in the summer months, but rarer in the winter.

Daytime temperatures are expected to increase again this week as we head towards Christmas, with maximums in Nerja of 20°C or more. On Tuesday Vélez-Málaga recorded a high of 24°C – this comes close to the highest temperature ever recorded of 24.6°C in 1998 with 23.4°C being the highest measured this century.
