SUMMER STORMS and soaring temperatures will put over 20 Spanish provinces at risk this week.
Heavy showers, thunder and lightning will hit the northeast with hail forecast in some areas whilst the South and Balearics are at risk of sky-high heat.
A number of orange storm alerts have been issued by the State Meteorological Agency (Aemet) for Barcelona, Tarragona, Navarra, Castellon and Valencia with the provinces of Aragon, Girona and Lleida likely to see the worst of the deluge.
Mallorca and Menorca have also been dealt orange alerts for high temperature levels by Aemet and those in the Balearics, Malaga and Murcia are set to face the worst of the scorching heat.
Malaga, Ibiza, Murcia, Lleida as well as Tarragona have received yellow alerts for high temperature.
The northwest and east of the country is predicted to be cloudy with the rest of Spain looking to be largely clear with some areas even experiencing a decrease in temperature.
