Ian Williams - 31/3/2011 20:24 Both Seville and Moron De La Frontera got up to at least 29.2C and Andujar 29.1C on the hourly obs, possibly one of them may have our first 30C max of the year. Hottest place so far this year was Murcia Observatory with 29.2C, on the 26th February and this was a new site record for February.

Just a very quick glimpse at AEMET, 30c wasnt breached, ut still hot for the time of year. Andujar 29.7C making it the hottest daily recorded temperature so far this year.

Andujar 29.7C

Moron 29.5C

Seville 29.3C

And another glimpse around, and  Ierapetra on Crete may of recorded the highest minimum of the year sofar with a low of 16.7C

Indeed Pit, Not having studied Euro temps in the winter and spring, i take it Greeces temps for March are indeed unusual, especially the cold spell and the lack of any warm spell, with the exception of Heraklion that had its moments.

Ian Williams - 28/3/2011 19:35 Looking at current models it would seem southern Spain are set for a hot weekend, especially Friday and Saturday as High Pressure in the Med drags up hot air from Africa. 850mb temps around 18C for Andalusia, resulting in possible 30C for the likes of perhaps Seville and Andujar. This warm upper air could clip the SE of the UK but current GFS models suggest it will just miss us. The freezing level for example over Andalusia on Saturday 2nd is a whopping 3600m. Portugal and France will also feel the effects too.

30C Breached

1700 Local time temps, so the max may not of been realised yet

Andujar 31.4C

Seville 30.2C

Close behind Moron 29.9C

A number of places across Spain saw over 30c yesterday including northern Spain, with the likes of Santander and Bilbao. Also one or two places in Portugal too, Ovar Maceda got to 30.8C. Hottest though was Andujar in Spain with 32.3C

Worth noting that La Coruna (Galicia) saw 30.4°C on 1st April. This city is usually very oceanic. Impressive.

This year we had to wait until April for the first 30 to be breached compared to 2010 when there was no month without a 30C.Even in January.Crete recording all the 30's till March if I am not mistaken in 2010.

You're right, Pit, by counting all the stations, there had been at least one station and one day, with at least 30.0C per month, in Crete, between Januaray and December 2010. I verified. [sun]

So, is Greece the only country in Europe which is able to reach 30C each month ? [sun]

Jerez minimum between 2100hrs and 0900hrs was 18.4C as recorded by the synop codes on Ogimet

Here is the data from AEMET  which gives the minimum as 17.5C @ 2359hrs on the 2nd out side of the time scale for measuring over night minimums from 1st April overnight into the 2nd

Had to use Ogimet for a few and other sources of hourly data for some of the Spanish stations where some of their maximums were recorded at 0000hrs and the minimums 2350hrs in the same day. So there are variations to what AEMET has recorded. I use minimum temps 2100 to 0900hrs and maximum temps 0900hrs to 2100hrs which is a pretty much accepted standard for synops stations around the world. (All times local).

Nearly another clean sweep for Spain but Palaiohora spoilt the party for 2 days in a row.

Likewise we discard high altitude stations in Britain.

But I guess it's not often a high altitude station is warmer than anywhere else?

...Probably due to a "foehny-southerly wind"... High Sierra Nevada is just South of Dona Mencia...
