Heat-wave in NE Spain/SW France

Anyone thinking of setting off across N Spain should be aware it is hot at the moment. Bilbao reached 40°C today, Burgos 36, Pamplona and Logrono 35. In France Biarritz was 37 and Cazaux (an airfield near Arcachon) 39. Afternoon walking definitely not recommended.

NW Spain though much cooler - Santiago a mere 25°.

London is due to hit 36°C today so I'll be fairly well acclimatised! :)

I'm walking with a team and, last year, our schedule often saw us finishing at about 3pm but, since we're going a few weeks later this year I'll have to see if we can break camp a bit earlier (or suggest that).

I'm leaving on Monday for SJPP and currently in Southampton it's 36 degrees. I can't imagine it being hotter than this... if so I'm not going to be walking very far!

I see they had to close down the nuclear power station at Santa Maria de Garona (roughly north of Belorado) yesterday, as the river water became too warm to use as a coolant!

In general, though, temps in SW France are higher than in N Spain: Albi reached 39C yesterday, Toulouse 38, Burgos a mere 35.
