Urgent warning for people travelling to Spain this week

A warning of “extreme” weather conditions has been issued to people travelling to Spain this week. Temperatures are apparently set to hit 42C this week, meaning holidaymakers will need to pack extra sun cream as conditions get unseasonably hot for May.

The country’s meteorological agency, AEMET, has warned that temperatures are going to be “unusually high” this week. A spokesperson said: “Very high temperatures will exceed 35C in many parts of the peninsula and the Balearic Islands. It may reach 40C to 42C in parts of the south and Ebro, with very warm nights. It will be a truly unusual episode for the time.”

Weather models show daytime temperatures will generally hover around the mid-30s this week, but could exceed 40C in some areas. Meanwhile, some areas are set to experience “tropical nights” with temperatures not dropping below 20C, the Irish Mirror reports.

AEMET continued: “The warm episode will be very unusual for mid-May.” You can get more travel news and other story updates by subscribing to our newsletters here.

Temperatures across Spain are set to peak from Thursday and continue rising until Saturday. AEMET says the warmest days will be Friday and Saturday, while temperatures will likely fall from Monday to “more typical” values.

It comes as parts of India and Pakistan experienced exceptional heatwave conditions over recent weeks, while much of western Europe is preparing for significant heat this week.
