Statements by a woman about the heat in Spain. The heat wave which has affected all of Spain since last Wednesday and has caused at least six deaths, is reducing today due to the entry of fresh air from the Atlantic.
From today, the arrival of fresh air from the Atlantic by the formation of a barometric depression in the upper layers will bring a generalized and gradual temperature drop of between 6 to 8 degrees, which will go from west to east across the Peninsula, according to the spokesman from the State Agency of Meteorology (Aemet), Rubén Del Campo.
The drops starts on Tuesday from the western half and the Cantabrian area and will move east Wednesday to the east, producing “a new descent on Thursday.”
Del Campo has indicated that Friday and Saturday were the hottest days in this episode of heat wave, with temperatures of 45-46 degrees in the province of Cordoba, 46 in Badajoz and more than 46 on Friday at the station of El Granados (Huelva), near the border with Portugal.
