Summers in Spain now last five weeks longer than they did in the ’80s

New studies into climate data have revealed that the length of summer in Spain is five weeks longer than it used to be back in the 1980s.

 A report by Spain’s meteorological agency AEMET and the Ministry for the Ecological Transition have come to the conclusion that summers in Spain are lasting longer based on 40 years of data.

This latest study claims that nearly 32 million people are affected by a warming cycle called “Tropical Nights” where temperatures never drop below 20° after sunset.

The new research also discovered that areas of Spain with a semi-arid climate had increased by 30,000 square kilometres, which is roughly the size of Galicia.
