SPAIN’S state meteorological office, AEMET, has recorded some scorching October temperatures in the west of the country.
On Tuesday, October 3 the mercury hit a high of 33.8º Celsius in Cáceres beating the previous record of 33.5º Celsius on October 12, 2011.
While in Ponferrada (León) the temperature was 0.6º Celsius higher than the previous record of 31º Celsius on October 5, 2011.
And at Salamanca airport the high was recorded at 31º Celsius – up 0.3º Celsius on October 12, 2011.
If you love the sun you’d better make the most of it now because the weather agency is forecasting ‘significant’ rain in November and December.
The regional delegate of AEMET for Andalucia, Ceuta and Melilla, Luis Fernando López Cotín, has said that October will be warm, with a scarcity of rain and temperatures will be above normal but ‘significant’ rainfall is expected in November and December.
