Spain melts under the earliest heat wave in over 40 years
Spain suffers from the earliest heat wave in over 40 years. A cloud of hot air from North Africa has sent temperatures soaring, according to AEMET forecasters.
The suffocating heat wave could last in most of Spain until June 16 or 17, a few days before summer officially starts on June 21.
With temperatures surpassing 40 C in parts of central and southern Spain, the current heat wave is the earliest one registered since 1981.
