Cordoba is one of the hottest places in Spain and Europe. Each summer, temps exceed 40C and last July it reached 45C with nearby Montoro hitting a new all-time Spain record of 47.3C.

The average May high for Cordoba is 27C but due to a significant cool and wet pattern, it’s taken till May 16 for Cordoba to reach it’s first 30C. That’s 3 weeks behind the average first 30C. Cities well to the north including London, Paris, Oslo and Helsinki, all typically 10-15C cooler than Cordoba registered 28C+ before Cordoba.

In contrast to May 2018, back in 2015, Cordoba topped 40.2C setting a new May record.
