Saharan blast to push temperatures up to ’33 degrees’ on the Costa Blanca this Wednesday

A BLAST of air from the Sahara desert will push temperatures up to 33 degrees this week on the Costa Blanca.

Temperatures will peak on Wednesday, with the coastal region of Alicante most hit by hot weather.

By Tuesday, however, Orihuela will already reach 33 degrees with Alcoy reaching 31 degrees and Denia reaching 29 degrees, according to Spanish state met agency AEMET.

The warm blast follows days of hot weather in the interior of Spain.

On Monday, Badajoz, Huelva and Andujar all saw the mercury hit 38 degrees, meanwhile Seville and Cordoba registered above 37 degrees.

The heat will fall back down to the mid-20s by Thursday.
