Horror heatwave warning for Brits in Spain with temps expected to reach 40C

Brits abroad in Spain and Portgual have been warned that temperatures are set to skyrocket to a blistering 40C, with medical professionals warning of heatwave dangers.

For those in Spain or Portugal, the weather is reportedly set to rise and rise to dangerously hot levels, with an official weather warning released by the Spanish Met Office.

Parts of Portugal will be notably hotter than usual, and Spanish officials have issued a warning to holidaymakers and residents to make sure everyone is safe during the hot weather.

Intense weather temperatures are expected for the European holiday hotspot, with upwards of 40C expected for the Costa del Sol.

Both the Balearic and Canary Islands will face some extremely hot weather until the end of the week, while Anadalusia has been issued an orange weather warning that will likely last until mid-September.

Most of the country remains on a yellow weather warning, with advice including staying indoors, keeping hydrated and wearing SPF 50 suncream.

Aemet, Spain's Met Office, stated: "The heat will be very intense on the mainland and in the Balearics at least until next Wednesday and it is not ruled out that it could extend for a couple of days.

"The intense heatwave is very rare for the month of June."

Extreme caution has been advised for holidaymakers looking to make the most of their fun in the sun, with Aemet warning that temperatures will "exceed 35C in large areas of the Peninsula".

A health spokesperson from the Canary Islands said: "These actions are intended to increase individual prevention capacity to face the heat in the Canary Islands by applying measures that are easy and accessible."

Those hoping for some cooler nights are in for disappointment too, with temperatures predicted to be at around 20C after a day of blistering heat.

Local healthcare centres in the Costa del Sol and Canary Islands are on high alert to deal with a potential influx of patients affected by the warm weather, LADBible reported.
