THE AEMET Spanish State Weather Agency has warned that current high temperatures are due to continue keeping most of the country sweating until Tuesday (June 30).The heatwave is due to a combination of a low-level anticyclone and a mass of hot air above it, which are stopping clouds or rain developing to relieve the heat, and the arrival of extremely hot air from Africa on a lower level.Today (Saturday 27) temperatures are expected to reach 40 degrees Celsius in the Guadalquivir valley in Andalucia, where orange alerts have been issued, and temperatures between 36 and 38 degrees are forecast for the rest of Andalucia and Southern Spain, Valencia, northern Murcia, the Ebro Valley and Ampurdan, where yellow alerts have been issued.Tomorrow temperatures are expected to continue rising all over mainland Spain and the Balearic Islands, with yellow alerts expected almost everywhere except for Cantabria, and orange alerts for the Guadiana, Tajo and Ebro valleys.On Monday and Tuesday the heat is expected to also reach Galicia and Cantabria, and yellow or even orange alerts are probable.Nighttime temperatures will also be high, generally over 20 degrees in the southern half of the country and the Ebro Valley, the agency warned.
