Record breaking temperatures are expected this weekend in the Spain and Portugal regions. Temperatures could reach over 45 degrees, which is unusual for these areas. Please take extra care in the sun, go easy on the sunbathing, particularly in the first few days – stay in the shade and always use high factor protective sunscreen.
Watch out for the signs of burning, heat exhaustion or sunstroke (reddening skin, sleepiness, dizziness, headaches) and make sure you drink lots of (non-alcoholic) fluids especially bottled water to avoid dehydration.
