It’s hot today, isn’t it? The anticyclonic blockade of the south-western Europe is preventing the air masses from regenerating, which translates into very high temperatures and a lot of heat. These air masses are affecting especially western Europe. What’s more, in France temperatures could be higher than in some areas of Spain. Temperatures here will be around 40ºC in some provinces such as Zaragoza, Logroño, Valladolid, Madrid, Cáceres and Badajoz, as well as Ciudad Real, Córdoba and Seville. Even in the area of ​​the Cantabrian Sea temperatures will be very high, reaching a maximum temperature of 36ºC in Bilbao. On the other hand, in the area of ​​the Ebro Valley we have orange alerts until Wednesday.
