AT 45.4C, SPAIN SET’S NEW NATIONAL, PERHAPS EUROPE TEMP RECORD FOR SEPTEMBER

Written by on September 5, 2016 in Rest of Europe, Summer 2016, United Kingdom & Ireland with 0 Comments

It’s an understatement to say it’s hot in Spain these days with a powerful upper ridge providing cloudless skies and strong sinking while an air flow blowing off a still scalding Sahara, enhances an already hot air mass.

Yesterday morning started off on a balmy note at 29C in Alajar. With blazing sunshine beating down, the southern interior climbed well above 35C widely with several surpassing 40C. However the king of heat was Las Cabezas de San Juan where it topped 45.4C. Spain’s hottest of the year, hottest for any September and may be Europe’s hottest for September also.

The next few days will see further low 40s but expect a cooling trend late week as a front finally replaces Saharan air with Atlantic air.
