An orange weather warning for intense heat has been issued in Madrid, Extremadura, Castilla y Leon, Castilla La Mancha and Andalucia.

More specifically, Andalucia’s Sevilla and Cordoba have both been issued an orange warning and Almeria has been issued a yellow one.
Huelva and Jaen will also experience high temperatures ranging from 36 to 39 degrees.
Cadiz has also been issued a yellow warning but due to strong winds passing through the Strait.

The state meteorological agency has warned the population to be wary about the adverse risks the orange alert could bring and be cautious when conducting day-to-day activities during this time of extreme heat. However, with the yellow alert, the meteorological risk for the population is minimal.
