This video by Eltiempo.es shows the mass of warm that will sweep in from the west that will see much of Spain see temperatures above 25C reaching 36C in the Guadalquivir Valley.
Rubén del Campo, the spokesman for Aemet said that after several months marked by persistent wet and rainy weather, the change will come with the start of May.
But he warned people to be careful when they went outside for the first time in more than six weeks because they wouldn’t be used to the sun or high temperatures. “The sun burns even at midday,” he warned.
La fase previa de la #Desescalada va a coincidir con una importante subida de #temperaturas y mucho #calor. Los termómetros alcanzarán valores de pleno verano, y nuestro cuerpo aún no está acostumbrado. Además, el sol ya quema a mediodía. Por todo ello, precaución. https://t.co/O3PziyDjZ0
