First heatwave of the year approaches the Islands

GET your fans working and your air con blasting as temperatures in the Island are expected to increase dramatically.
In a press conference, head of the Forecasts Department of the National Meteorology Agency (AEMET), Angel Alcazar, explained this phenomenon was caused by a stable mass of air that would affect the southeast areas of Europe and the north of Africa and, together with the sun and lack of wind to alleviate it will result in a dramatic increase of temperatures, both minimums and maximums.
Mr Alcazar explained that the heat wave would start spreading tomorrow (Thursday, June 25) across the country and will extend until Sunday (June 28), and said that temperatures on the Island would reach 35 degrees on Friday.
Temperatures are expected to start dropping again on Monday (June 29), starting in the northeast areas of the country.
Nocturnal temperatures on Saturday and Sunday are expected to range between 20 and 25 degrees, causing the so-called ‘tropical nights.’
“Temperatures could reach the high-risk threshold and it is possible the orange level warning will be issued,” finished Mr Alcazar.
