BBC meteorologist Chris Fawkes outlined that temperatures will reach 38 degrees in the warmest regions in Spain on Thursday. The National Meteorological Agency of Spain has also predicted the region of Cordoba will reach that red hot temperature.
Mr Fawkes said: “Across western Europe, we continue to see some warm summer weather at the moment with pressure generally high.
“We have low pressure pushing into the northwest of the UK, bringing some thicker cloud and a few patches of rain.
“For the time being the western side of Europe is enjoying more of that warm sunshine.
“Temperatures in Spain are currently climbing to 38 degrees in the very hottest areas as we go through Thursday.
“Further east there will be a lot of dry weather but a scattering of thundery showers are expected to develop as we go through Thursday afternoon.
“They will be very much hit and miss in nature, there will be places that stay entirely dry.”
The BBC’s long-range forecast Monday 14 to Sunday, June 20, outlines above-average temperatures and warm weather.
The BBC wrote: “High pressure that builds in strongly towards the end of next week should begin a slow westward trek in mid-June, gradually shifting away from the UK and into the North Atlantic.

“Mid-June is likely to remain warmer and drier than normal for a time as high pressure lingers near enough to deflect weather fronts.
“Temperatures are likely to be above average for most and may be slightly warmer than we expect for next week.
“Low pressure will be deepening in northeast Europe during the middle of June, bringing some cooler and wetter weather there.
“This should stay well to the east of us for a while, but it is being held there by the high pressure over the UK.”

The forecast continued: “Once our high begins to shift west, the cooler and wetter weather will spread in from the east.
“This may happen sometime in the second half of the week or hold off until a bit later in June.
“These warm summertime highs tend to be slow to move around, so it could take several days for the high to move far enough away that we see a change in the weather pattern.
“There is also a risk, about a 30 percent chance of occurrence, that high pressure stays overhead or slightly east of us well into July, keeping things warm, dry, and settled for the next several weeks.”
