(Leer en español) When we wake up every June 21 we find the summer in Spain. It seems that this year the summer has arrive on time. The 40ºC are going to be normal on summer in Seville.
There is good weather in Seville all year, but when the thermometer exceeds 40ºC, it bothers more people than it makes happy. Sunny days are helpful, avoiding the critical hours of midday and early afternoon. But, what about the nights? Every year we have grown tired of hearing, or of telling, that it is difficult to sleep because of the high temperatures.
Last year we even learned that during heat waves, the nights in Seville stop being tropical to be equatorial. What does it mean? That the temperature does not fall below 25º. There is no more summer than an equatorial night…
The past year was the hottest in history … and so four consecutive. Seeing how the summer arrives, it is difficult to know if the tendency will continue. About the summer in Seville, Manola Brunet (OMM President) says that the weather in Seville for 2050 will be the same as in Morocco now, and Catalonia is going to have the Sevillian weather then.
PLANS FOR THE SUMMER IN SEVILLE
We have already proposed alternatives to the Sevillian heat. A lot of water, or beer, shadow or conditioned air when the sun hits the most and summer activities throughout the city. Cinema, theater, concerts and sport are the protagonists of the summer in Seville. You can look here for some ideas to enjoy the summer in Seville even with the top heat.
SUMMER TERRACES IN SEVILLE
The nights give a break to the visitors or Sevillian and the streets are more crowded. Same as the summer terraces of the bars in Seville. The irruption of the nebulizers (the system of raindrops, known in Seville as microclimates) in the terraces and their later popularization have turned the center of Seville in a swimming pool under the sun.
Almost all places to eat in Seville already have this system. The terraces become a pleasant place, in which to enjoy the company, the atmosphere and the gastronomy. We already gave you the list of the best terraces in Seville for your summer dinners. Check it out.

You can taste special cold tapas for these hot days. Although many of them are on the menu throughout the year, this is their star period. We are thrilled to see these showcases with russian salad, salpicón (mix of shellfish), stuffed peppers or eggs, gazpacho, salmorejo, tomatoes or potatoes aliñás (sazoned), scombrid, anchovies… I do not continue because we end up chewing the keyboard…
