MADRID – Hot temperatures are to continue at least through Monday in southern and central Spain, as well as the Canary Islands and sections of Galicia, the National Meteorological Institutes said, following the blistering hot weekend.

In southern Spain, temperatures in the low 40s were forecast for Seville, Cordoba and Badajoz, whilst the coastal cities of Malaga and Cadiz should see the mercury hit around 31 degrees.

Forecasts for Madrid, Toledo and Cuenca called for temperatures between 35 and 38 degrees. High temperatures in the Canary Islands helped fuel several wildfires in the archipelago.

At the weekend, temperatures rose to the mid-40s in many cities in the southern and central regions for the hottest days so far this summer, the Institute reported.

Despite the hot weather, Spanish Public Health Director Manuel Oñorbe said that there had been no deaths reported this year so far from heat stroke. Last year, 21 people died in Spain from heat stroke.
