Spain prepares for first major heatwave of 2017
By:
ThinkSpain , Tuesday, June 13, 2017

The first big heatwave of the year is set to sweep the country on Thursday and last until at least Sunday.

After numerous days with "episodes of high temperatures" across much of the country, the state meteorological agency (AEMET) explained today that forecasts suggest "intense amounts of sunshine" which will further heat up the air mass hanging over the centre of Spain.

Furthermore, the hot weather is highly likely to persist into the beginning of next week, with little or no change in air pressure expected and with temperatures of over 35ºC in numerous places on mainland Spain and in the Balearic Islands.

From Thursday until Sunday, AEMET warns, the south western corner of the country will be "the most obviously affected by this situation".

The agency also pointed out that "across much of the country" highs would be in the region of 40ºC and night-time lows would not drop below 20ºC.

The mercury is expected to go even higher in the Tajo, Guadiana and Guadalquivir basins, with highs of over 42ºC very likely and lows of over 25ºC.
