Mini heatwave assails Spain over first weekend of September

By Wednesday the heat will be abating and the country returning to more normal temperature levels

In spite of this being the first weekend of September, conditions of atmospheric instability will lead to a major episode of late summer high temperatures which will affect the majority of the regions of Spain between the 3rd and 8th September.

On Saturday and Sunday temperatures rose right across Spain and are expected to reach 38/40ºC in areas of the south-western quadrant of Spain, 36/39ºC in the central area of the Ebro Valley and Valencia Region and 34/36ºC in the El Duero Valley and central –southern areas of Galicia on Sunday afternoon and Monday.

On Monday and Tuesday temperatures will fall in the Ebro Valley and climb in the north-west of Spain, and it is probable that they will continue to rise in the southern-central areas of the Spanish peninsula, exceeding 40ºC in areas such as the Guadalquivir Valley, the Tajo and Guadiana Valleys.

It is probable that temperatures will start to fall noticeably across the west of Spain on Wednesday, a fall which will become generalised on Thursday.

Events Calendar

Good morning Quesada. Hope everyone is well. Just a couple of things which we would like to tell you. We noticed that very few people are using our events calendar. This is an excellent way to promote your future events as this is connected to our Twitter system, whereby every event added to the calendar, a notification is automatically sent to all of our Twitter followers. If you have an advert on services which is only €20 a month, you can also use the events calendar to promote forthcoming sales and promotions. You can also add on ASL Facebook page whatever you wish. Secondly, in the very near future, we are launching ASL franchise in every area of Spain. No upfront fee and very good return if you put the work in!


Are people talking about you on Twitter

I have just found this search engine for Twitter, seems an interesting way to find out what everyone are talking about it could be you.

Art Classes

Art classes begin again at Lo Marabu Restaurant on the Lemon Tree Road, Dona Pepa, Quesada, this Wednesday at 10.30 am. Beginners are welcome and the first few classes concentrate on learning to draw - an essential building block before starting to paint. The class is fun and friendly, and beginners need not bring anything with them as all materials are provided for the first few weeks. Call Suzanne on 680 961 025 or see


Hi Sue
I know this is a bit late ( well only two years ) but are you still running classes?

Hi, thank you for getting in touch, and yes, I am still running classes. I have one on Mondays at PALS Social Club in La Siesta from 10.30-1.00 pm, and one on Thursday mornings at Restaurant La Herradura (immediately next to the REPSOL Garage) in Los Montesinos, 10.00-12.15 pm. You will be very welcome to either. Both are 10 euros per class

You will be very welcome.

Hi Sue. Maybe an idea to mention your classes on the events calendar as this is also connected to our Twitter system and we have 1000's of followers. Every event posted an automatic tweet is sent to our followers. Just a thought!

Thank you...I will. Though classes are actually almost full at the moment!

Flight Delays 6 years old

Hi Quesada

I would just like to share this with everyone else (and no its not my company). I was told a few weeks ago that you can put in a claim for a flight delay going back 6 years and if you win you get compensation.

Well i have been delayed 3 times so I have done just that and claimed, so far I have won one claim and been paid 310 Euros still waiting on the others.

But if anyone would like to see if they can do the same, this is the website I used

New Quesada Boulevard

Hi does anyone have any info/pics regarding the new Quesada Boulevard I've just heard about? No doubt I'm a bit late and this is no longer classed as news but it's news to me so any info would be much appreciated.

sincere thanks



I would be interested to know what happened to this development, I know its a year ago that you posted but do you know if its all finished now?

Hi there yes, when I was out in Feb some of the shops were occupied and looked very nice. Some building work was still on - going but in general the whole thing appeared to be well on its way.


Commented we love it here in Quesada 2016-05-17 14:31:36 UTC

Hi. Well better late then never! The new shopping centre is now open in Quesada and has some very nice ladies fashion shops. Well worth a visit.

We are now doing our very best to get people back in posting on the forum and to use the events calendar to add forth coming events.

It is totally free to use and will help other users to A Spanish Life. Look forward to hearing from you!
