Spain’s longest heatwave since 1975 is coming to an end with temperatures becoming more bearable, according to the Met office, with forecasters saying that the whole country will be experiencing “normal” July weather this weekend.

 

According to the National Grid, electricity consumption shot up by 13.3% in the first two weeks of July compared to the same period in 2014, because of air-conditioning units and fans on the go constantly. Sales of portable air-conditioning and fans also went off the scale, and forest fires have been more prolific than ever with over 300 reported since the last week in June.
