It ain’t half hot!

By Nicola Cowell

AFTER last week’s freak storms which left three people dead, Andalucia is bracing itself for another heat wave.

The region is on orange alert as the mercury is expected to rise to 42ºC this weekend, with night-time highs of as much as 25ºC on Friday and Saturday.

Spanish meteorologists say the heat wave has been caused by an anticyclone, affecting Andalucia, Extremadura and Castilla la Mancha.

But, the north of the country is expected to escape the hot weather.

Doctors are warning vulnerable people, including children and pensioners, to drink plenty of water and wear light-coloured clothing to avoid heat stroke.
