Heatwave Alert (again)

We’re only just recovering from last week’s heatwave when the next is being forecast!!


Meteorologists think that a new ola de calor (wave of heat) will arrive this weekend, bringing calima and the highest temperatures of the summer so far. I know people like the sound of a “heatwave” but in places that are already hot, it is a different and sometimes dangerous matter, with temperatures able to rise well into the 40ºs, a level which is comfortable and safe for no-one. Please see HERE for official advice on remaining safe in conditions of extreme heat. No doubt there will be further and more specific forecasts over the next few days.
