Magaluf is bracing for a suffocating heatwave that will bring extreme temperatures of 40 plus degrees centigrade to most of Mallorca and the Balearics this week.
European forecasters warned that “hell is coming” with a record breaking heatwave expected to hit the resort tomorrow.
Spain is also set to sizzle in the heat as Spanish forecaster Silvia Laplana tweeted a picture of an all-red weather map captioned: “El infierno (hell) is coming.”
High pressure is coming from the Atlantic to cover the region, drawing up hot air from northern Africa and Spain, raising temperatures.
In Spain, weather agency Aemet is predicting highs of at least 35C in large parts of the country, and above 40C in the centre, plus 42C in Magaluf.
Germany is also predicting temperatures in the mid-30s in Berlin, Hamburg, Frankfurt and other cities – with a forecast 38C for the capital by Thursday.
In France, highs of over 40C are predicted in some areas, with an “orange” warning in place, the second highest.
