With still nine days until the summer officially starts, six provinces have already been given an “orange alert”.
The alert is meant to provide a warning for citizens to be prepared, as temperatures are said to rise to above 40 degrees Celsius.
The six provinces are: Córdoba, Jaén, Sevilla, Toledo, Badajoz y Cáceres.
Eighteen other provinces currently have “yellow alerts,” which are: Granada, Huelva, Huesca, Teruel, Zaragoza, Ciudad Real, Cuenca, Guadalajara, Ávila, Salamanca, Segovia, Valladolid, Zamora, Barcelona, Girona, Lleida, Tarragona and Madrid.
These provinces will likely see highs of 41 degrees Celsius, with the minimum temperature not going below 20.
The extreme weather is meant to last all the week, remaining high even during the night. There will be a total of 24 provinces with a weather warning over the next couple of days, however, by the end of the week the temperature is said to drop slightly.
