Heat wave

Starting from today Sunday 5th July and continuing on until next Sunday July 12th Spain is to be hit by a second heatwave. The hot air coming up from Africa will see the temperatures soar in 40’s over the coming week.
Ayamonte with its location next to the sea and the Guadiana River will be saved some of the suffocating heat but still expect temps in high  30’s with Tuesday and Wednesday expected to be the hottest days.
So make sure you are fully creamed up if you head out in the sun and try and keep out of the sun during peak hours. Please remember that the temperatures given are for those in the shade so the temperature in the sun will easily be over 40. Also remember that if you have a dog, try go for walks in the early morning or late evening as the ground can burn their soles. An easy way to see if it is safe to walk you pet is place the back of your hand on the ground and if you can hold it there comfortably for over 5 seconds it is safe to walk your pet.
On average Spain gets two heatwaves per year, so considering that we are only in early July it is safe to say this is going to be an above average summer.
