HEATWAVE to hit central, southern Spain and Balearic islands from Wednesday

A HEATWAVE is expected to hit parts of central and southern peninsular Spain, as well as the Balearic Islands, from next Wednesday, June 26.

A statement from the Spanish met office (AEMET) said ‘hot air from Africa’ will push the mercury to above 40 degrees, while night temperatures will remain above 25 degrees.

The most affected areas are the Ebro, Tajo, Guadiana and Guadalquivir valleys, which include the cities of Madrid, Cordoba and Seville.

The Balearic Islands, particularly Mallorca, will see temperatures above 35 degrees.

The Mediterranean coast line will likely have temperatures between 26 and 30 degrees.

Meanwhile the Canary Islands, Galicia, Asturias and Cantabria will largely remain unaffected.

The heatwave will last until Sunday, June 30, according to the statement.
