Today, six provinces will have a yellow risk warning due to high temperatures, winds or coastal phenomena, as reported by the State Meteorological Agency, which highlights the thermal rise that will be experienced during the day in much of the country except in the extreme north. and the strong winds that will blow in the Ampurdán, in the lower Ebro and in points of the Canary Islands.
