In the above article they say that the first heatwave of the summer has not been confirmed, but today it was.

Spain braces for first heat wave of the summer

Temperatures are forecast to rise above 35ºC across the peninsula and the Balearic Islands from Wednesday

The spring was hot and dry - the stats that they give for Madrid is that average spring rain fall is 60 litres per sq metre and this year it was 2 !!

Well we've had the deluge in Asturias for the past couple of days with heavy mist on the hills, let alone
up in the mountains. So these imminent heatwave predictions look a million miles away here in Northern Spain.
In fact Spring was pretty cool and cold overnight for much of the season as well; in fact I only put my
radiators away last week whereas in previous years, they would have been put away around the first
week of May.

So to quote the BBC Weather news for Europe - Cooler in Portugal with the remnants of a frontal system
bringing more cloud and rain into Northern Spain during the week.


In fact there's a rain bearing cloud stubbornly hovering over Asturias in the BBC animated weather news,
which means for those looking to cool off - look no further than Asturias for that breath of fresh air
this week.

Today is a little cooler at 30°. Forecast is for 39° at the weekend (for those who haven't got the hang of Celsius, 39° is 102° in old money.)

Spring was definitely cooler than normal down here. Didn't take the duvet off the bed until this weekend. As for this week's heatwave, we aren't predicted to go beyond 34º as we are somewhat cooled by Atlantic breezes.

We have recently had the rest of our windows (except for the attic) changed from wooden single glazed to uPVC double glazed and at the same time improved the insulation on the back (exposed) wall which gets the weather and the sun. It has gone from a single leaf (2-3 inches thick) to having 3 inches of rockwool and plasterboard on the inside. Yesterday with the temp of about 30° outside, it was decidedly coolish indoors and I even thought about slipping on a cardigan.
