Rain in Malaga
There was no measurable rain during June, although showery rain around mid morning on the 28th was enough to dampen the ground.
There were no reports of thunder in this part of west Malaga.
The wind pattern was fairly typical for early Summer, with light northwesterly land breezes being replaced by gentle afternoon southeasterly sea breezes. However, on some days a brisk southwesterly wind developed during the afternoons leading to choppy seas and some lifted sand on the beach. On the 3 very warm or hot days the land breeze persisted through the afternoons and evenings with no relief from the heat before midnight. On the evening of the 13th, the temperature stayed above 30 Celsius (86F) until after midnight. On most days winds were mostly light or gentle, but on 4 days there were gusts above 20 knots (23 mph).
