Summer could be hotter than normal in all of Spain

Summer temperature

Summer is a season expected by many. The high temperatures invite you to immerse yourself in the water and to enjoy the taste of ice cream again after several months without being able to do so, or at least, without being able to take advantage of it as we will be able to do in the coming weeks.

But What are the predictions of the State Meteorological Agency (AEMET) for this summer?

This summer is quite hot. In many parts of the country, such as southern Andalusia, temperatures of 35-40 degrees Celsius have already been recorded. Yes, there are many who have already gone to the beach or the pool, but they will not be the only ones: according to the AEMET there is a 50% probability that normal values ​​will be exceeded (taken from the reference period 1981 to 2010) in the Iberian Peninsula and in the Balearic Islands.

In the Canary archipelago the probabilities are somewhat lower, 45%.

No major changes in rainfall are expected

On the other hand, if we talk about rainfall, no significant changes are expected compared to other years. The wet, normal and dry scenarios have the same probabilities: 33%, so whether you expected it to rain more or if, on the contrary, you preferred it to do less, this year will be more or less the same as the previous ones.

During this season, especially if you live in a very hot area, you can have several problems throughout the day: difficulty sleeping, mood swings due to excess heat, problems concentrating, among others. To avoid them, We offer you a series of tips that will help you spend a calmer season:

  • Drink at least 2 liters of water. They will keep you hydrated and the cells of your body will be able to function properly. Don't wait until you're thirsty to drink.
  • Eat fresh foods. Eating soups and things like that increases your body temperature. It seems obvious, but there are many people who from time to time decide to prepare some good chickpeas for example some day in summer.
  • Avoid sudden changes in temperature. It is often mistaken that during the summer it is very difficult to get sick, but sudden changes in temperature can weaken health.
  • Wear appropriate clothing, and avoid dark colors.

Have a happy summer.
