MADRID — Spain is set to sizzle as temperatures approaching 40C across the country next week were forecast on Friday.
Environment minister Cristina Narbona warned the elderly and parents with young children to take care after the National Metereological Institute (INM) forecast a heatwave starting Monday.
As hot winds approached from Africa, storms were predicted in some parts of the country over the weekend, said Ángel Ribera, of the INM.
The average temperature was 30C on Friday, but in many places people were sweltering as the thermometers reached 41C in Córdoba, 40C in Seville, 38C in Granada, 37C in 36C in Ciudad Real, 36C in Madrid and 34C in Albacete.
Spain would experience a respite over the weekend as temperatures fell, before rising again most of next week.
