THE arrival of September may have brought slightly cooler temperatures to southern Spain, but the baking heat has now returned in earnest.
A high of 33°C was recorded in Malaga City on Sunday, September 4, while inland temperatures reached a scorching 36°C.
Even more heat is expected on Monday, with a yellow alert having been issued for Malaga province between 2pm and 8pm.
The comarcas of Ronda and Antequera are set to swelter as temperatures reach 38°C, and the oven-like conditions will spread to the Costa del Sol, Valle del Guadalhorce and Axarquia, where highs of 37°C are forecast.
In fact, more than half of Spain will be on alert as the week begins, with fifteen provinces handed an orange warning.
These include Almeria, Valencia, Alicante, Murcia, Sevilla, Granada, Huelva, Jaen, Cadiz, Cordoba, Albacete, Toledo, Tarragona and Extremadura.
Tuesday is also expected to be extremely warm, and readers are advised to stay out of the direct sun during the middle of the day while drinking plenty of fluids.
