Hi, I open this topic to report about the weather in the whole Spain, not only the south.

This last weekend has been very hot in Spain. In Galicia, Asturias, Cantabria, Euskadi, Andalucía and Extremadura has been reported temperatures about 30ºC, some of them are records for April (on first April :shok:). Some of them:


In the north:
- A Coruña (Galicia): 30,4ºC ----New Record--- The previous record was 29,6ºC
- Oviedo (Asturias): 29,6ºC ----New Record--- " " 28,3ºC
- Santander (Cantabria): 30,6ºC ----New Record--- " " 29,4ºC
- Bilbao (Euskadi): 30,9ºC
In the south. The maximum temperature but the record was still far, about 35ºC.
- Sevilla (Andalucía): 30,7ºC
- Badajoz (Extremadura) 30ºC

In my city, Murcia, that actually owns the national record with 47ºC, only got the last saturday 28ºC because of the wind from the east.


For the next weekend is expected that the temperature will increase again. I think even hotter, some places could get 35ºC degrees. Some pics about the forecast.

Temperature at 850 hPa in Galicia, like in summer.

The desert dust is invading Iberia. We had it here last weekend, the sky was in a strange white.

I think in Benidorm won't be so warm because it's in the coast, see this. If you want so swim there the seawater will be arond 15-16ºC, it's still fresh.



Today has been even warmer that yesterday, the maximum temperatures has risen easily above 30ºC. Some places in Asturias have reached 34ºC, in Euskadi and Cantabria 31ºC, in Galicia 30ºC...
I'll write the whole list tonight.

The maximum in my city was 24ºC and we have now the strange sky in white because of the desert dust. Here some photos in my house (it doesn't seems so, but the sun shines).

Good night.

Today's maximums:

Important cities:

- Bilbao (Euskadi): 33ºC (could be a new record, but I don't know actually, it must be checked)
- Oviedo (Asturias): 31,5ºC ---New Record---
- Ourense (Galicia): 31,6ºC
- Seville (Andalucía): 30,2ºC
- Córdoba (Andalucía): 29,6ºC

Not so important cities:

- Panes (Asturias): 33,6ºC
- Goian (Galicia): 32,5ºC
- Castañeda (Cantabria): 32,4ºC


It has been registered another record in an important city , this time in the south, in Almería, one of the driest and warmest cities in Europe. It has been registered the first april "tropical minimum" (above 20ºC) with 21,3ºC, the previous record was 18,3ºC. Another "town" called Adra registered a minimum of 26,3ºC :shok: (how can anybody sleep with that, I don't get that minimum temperature here even in the hottest summer) but it still has to be checked. Those places are near from my city (200km more or less)and however I registered a minimum of 8,9ºC. In some places of Galicia has been registered also "tropical minimum": Punta Candeira 22,6ºC, Corrubedo 22,9ºC and Vigo 20,8ºC.

Bye.

Your welcome :winky:.

Today's maximums:

Important cities:

- Córdoba (Andalucía): 31,7ºC
- Badajoz (Extremadura): 31,2ºC
- Bilbao (Euskadi): 30,4ºC
- Granada (Andalucía): 30,2ºC
- La Coruña (Galicia): 29,4ºC

- Murcia (Región de Murcia): 26,2ºC Tomorrow is expected here almost 30ºC and saturday 34ºC

Other places:

- Tomares - Seville (Andalucía): 33,4ºC
- Noia - A Coruña (Galicia): 33ºC
- Ciudad Jardín - Córdoba (Andalucía): 33,7ºC


The desert dust is leaving Murcia, however in the west of Iberia is increasing. I left here an article and some photos and animations that I found interesting:

The article:

A thick plume of dust hangs over the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Portugal in this image from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite on April 6, 2011.

The dust blew in from the Sahara desert in North Africa, picked up by the strong winds associated with a low-pressure system. The tell-tale circular cloud pattern of the low-pressure system was visible in an Aqua MODIS image from the previous day. The low-pressure system channeled the dust west and then north, resulting in the plume off Portugal. The animation (link above) from the GEOS-5 model at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center shows the evolution of the dust plume between April 4 and April 9. Based on forecast weather conditions, the model predicted patterns that are similar to those shown in the MODIS image.

Airborne dust plays many roles in large-scale Earth processes. Dust is one of the most abundant aerosol particles in the atmosphere, and a natural seed for cloud formation. Dust particles and the clouds they generate can reflect energy from the Sun back into space, effectively shading Earth’s surface and cooling its temperature.

Dust also carries minerals, particularly iron, that help fertilize the Earth’s oceans. In iron-poor waters, dust provides essential nutrients for phytoplankton, tiny plants and plant-like organisms growing in the sunlit surface waters. In fact, a phytoplankton bloom colors the Atlantic beneath the dust in this image, though there is not necessarily a connection between the dust storm and this particular bloom.

Actually the record in my city is 32,5ºC, so tomorrow we will have another one.


A photo from Galicia, the desert dust is also disappearing there.

Ahh, I don't think it will be so warm as today, temperatures about 25ºC. Enjoy it, in april that is warmer than usual.



One thing, the temperature here, at the moment, is 37,2ºC. The previous record record was 32,5ºC. :help::help::help:
I can't get out my house, it absolutelly unbearable, the extremely hot air and the sun burns my skin. It's the highest temperature in Europe today.

This week is expected that the weather will be rainy and stormy in the whole iberian peninsula. The GFS diagramme from Murcia.

Posted Image


From Estofex:

The focus for today's convective activity will be the persisting upper low located near the western Iberia. At surface, a cyclone with a well-defined front will be pushed further east towards the peninsula. A plume of EML will be rather quickly advecting NNE-wards into SW Europe, creating an unstable environment.

The rest of Europe will remain warm and stable, with only sparks of low convective weather probabilities over west-central Alps and SW-ern Turkey.


Beneath the strong EML, characterized by steep mid-level lapse rates, additional moistening will be on going across Iberia. This will result in moderate instability, yielding MLCAPEs in excess of 1000 J/kg locally. Storms will likely initiate along the local prefrontal convergence lines as well as near the front later. In moderately sheared environment (15-20 m/s of deep layer shear) and favorable veering profiles (100-200 m^2/s^2 of SREH3), storms will gain organization in multicells and possibly also into a supercell or two. Those will pose a threat for large hail and locally some strong winds given the dry mid levels. Expect storms to last well into the early night near the surface front in SW Iberia. Intense rain might become a threat if cells could persist over the same areas for longer time.






18ºC here at the moment. Enjoy the warm weather there in the rest of Europe. :winky:

Yes things aren't looking that rosy at the moment. That's some MLCAPE forecast. The Madrid midday sounding isn't close although has a reasonable SBCAPE and is an interesting sounding. Some would say let's swop.

You know, Madrid is suffering at the moment a huge storm with hail and lightning every 2-3 second :drinks:. If you want to follow the discussion of the Madrid area go here (sorry, is translated into english from spanish by google traductor ).
