Hot air wafting in from North Africa and the Saharan desert brought sweltering temperatures that easily averaged 35 degrees on Monday on what turned out to be hottest day of the year so far for most the Costa Blanca and Mar Menor.

Parts of Elchehit 40 degrees whilst the mercury level climbed to 37 in Alicante, Orihuela and Torrevieja(a June record for the municipality). Night time values didn’t drop below 20 degrees with mid-June weather that is more typical of mid-July. Forecasters predict a cooler and more comfortable weekend that may also bring some storms as the hot air cools.
