Actualizamos nuestro «carrete» de temperaturas para los próximos días. Los modelos insisten en la muy probable llegada de una #OlaDeCalor a partir del miércoles o jueves. Además de a las #temperaturas máximas, no le quitemos ojo a las mínimas, que serán también muy elevadas. pic.twitter.com/GyJFWoR63E
