Few places in Spain will escape the searing heat as most areas will surpass 30C.

Only more northern spots such as Barcalona will reamain in the high 20s.

This comes as Spain experienced its hottest spring on record since data collection began, according to the AEMET national weather agency.

“The spring of 2023 was the hottest spring on record in Spain,” it said, referring to a three-month hot spell which began in March.

The agency reported the average temperature for the spring of 2023 was 14.2C, which was 1.8C hotter than the norm. 

This surpasses the previous record set in 1997 by 0.3C, making it an exceptionally hot spring.

Spain was already facing the challenges of a prolonged drought, which has had a significant impact on its agricultural sector. 

In late April, the country endured a severe heatwave, with local temperatures soaring up to 20C above average. 

The World Weather Attribution (WWA), a group of scientists studying the connection between climate change and extreme weather events, described the heatwave as “exceptional”.

During that time, southern Spain recorded a record high temperature for April, reaching 38.8C. 

AEMET noted that it was the driest and hottest April since reliable records began in 1961.
