Refreshing rain due after 'orange' heat alert
21 July 2020 @ 21:09

DOWNPOURS, thunder and lightning are heading for Spain after a sweltering few days and set to ease the humidity and cool the country down for a short while, says the State meteorological agency, AEMET.

But bad news for anyone who hates cleaning their pool or car – the atmospheric depression will come with a cloud of Sahara sand, creating the fairly commonplace 'red rain' that makes a mess of both.

Clouds were due to start gathering today across the Gulf of Cádiz and the western and north-eastern mountains, and expected to reach the Mediterranean towards the end of this week.

Spain has not seen the last of the summer temperatures, though: The mercury will continue to hover at around 40ºC or 41ºC in the Guadalquivir valley and the Guadiana area – inland Andalucía, one of the hottest parts of the mainland in summer – only dipping briefly around today and tomorrow.
