Across Spain people who have been in lockdown since March 14th are keenly anticipating the first sanctioned walks that they can make in the open-air this weekend.

Dog owners have been allowed to leave the house to take their pets for short necessary walks and children were only released for the first time last Sunday but May 2nd is the day when restrictions will be lifted to allow adults outside to stretch their legs.


The first outings outdoors, apart from those trips to buy essential supplies or seek medical care, coincide with a rise in temperatures that will see some parts of Spain sizzle in unusually warm weather for the time of year.


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.
