Fog descends on the Marina Baixa

As the seas began to warm up, fog descended on the Marina Baixa on the northern Costa Blanca on Sunday May 15.

A report from weather station A Punt Oratje indicates that fog can be expected in the area over the next few days and is expected to remain in the area until the sea warms up enough.

According to experts, fog occurs where wthe air from the arm encounters a more humid and colder air mass in the lower layers, losing temperature and gaining humidity.

When the air has cooled enough to no longer contain water vapour, it becomes saturated, ie the humidity reaches 100%, which produces fog. It’s because water takes longer to heat up and cool down than air.

The fog usually appears in September when the sea is warmer, as it normally is in February and March. This is when water vapor condenses and mists and fogs form. These usually spawn at sea but can move a few miles inland.

Fog covering the Marina Baixa is expected to cover the area for most of this week, a bit later in the year as usual as the mixed weather continues.
