Spain is forecast to experience high temperatures beginning Wednesday, June 26, and lasting through at least Monday, July 1, although it cannot be ruled out that they may continue for a few more days. The heatwave is expected to bring temperatures as high as 40°C (104°F) with nightly lows not sinking below 20°C (68°F), though likely not falling from 25°C (77°F). The heat wave will affect large areas of the interior of the peninsula, though coastal areas are not expected to reach such high temperatures. The Ebro Valley and the middle and upper basins of the Tagus, Guadiana, and Guadalquivir will be the areas where temperatures are expected to be the highest.
Meteorologists predict above average temperatures through August.
Individuals in Spain are advised to monitor local weather reports, avoid strenuous activities or spending time outdoors, particularly during midday, wear loose-fitting clothing, drink plenty of water and avoid dehydrating liquids, such as alcoholic, sugary, or caffeinated drinks, and seek immediate medical attention if exhibiting symptoms of heat stroke, such as nausea, confusion, headache, rapid and strong pulse, and dry skin.
