According to the French weather channel Metèo, there is a 70% probability that summer will be completely absent this year, and that not only in Spain but in the whole Western Europe, which would make it the coldest and most humid summer since 1816.

Heatwaves are expected, but of very short duration which will also cause strong storms during July and August. The weather is expected to improve for September and October.
