Heat wave in Spain: the country is witnessing a temperature of 40 degrees Celsius

Heat wave in Spain: the country is witnessing a temperature of 40 degrees Celsius

On Sunday afternoon, the Meteorological Agency had warned of rising temperatures in 17 Spanish regions.

According to ReutersPeople in the south of the country “waved fans, felt the flowing water and sprayed themselves on the fountains” on Saturday as a heat wave descended on the area.

The city of Jaén in Andalusia, southern Spain, recorded, on Friday, a temperature of 40.3 degrees Celsius.

In a tweet, Spain’s Meteorological Agency said that in Jaén’s case, temperatures were up to 16°C (60.8°F) above average for that time of year.

The city thermometer on the Puente del Cachorro bridge reads 42 degrees in Seville.

Temperatures in the rest of the peninsula were at least 7 degrees Celsius (44.6 degrees Fahrenheit) above normal, the agency added.

AEMET spokesperson, Ruben del Campo, said: “This episode is very unusual in the middle of May and could be one of the most intense in the past 20 years.”

The early hours of Saturday morning were “unusually warm” at this time of year across much of central and southern Spain, according to AEMET.

In many places, early morning temperatures didn’t dip below 25 degrees Celsius (77 degrees Fahrenheit) – something the weather agency said was “unheard of on the peninsula in May.”

AEMET also said Segovia experienced its first-ever “tropical night” in May, which is defined as a night when temperatures don’t drop below 20 degrees Celsius (68 degrees Fahrenheit).

Many countries around the world have experienced major heat waves lately, including India and Pakistan, and parts of the United States Like the drought-stricken Plains and Texas, where temperatures reached 90 degrees Fahrenheit this month.
