I think July has been cooler than last year, particularly in the evenings. My weather computer is currently backing up but I'll have a closer look and report back.

June mean temperature was very slightly cooler than last year, but only by 0.1ºc.

So far July has been 0.2ºc cooler, but as atg1952 said, the average minimum temperature has been slightly cooler but only by 1.2ºc.

Those figures were recorded on the coast, inland could be significantly different.

It doesn't feel as unbearably hot as it did last summer but then I don't think it's got going yet. Last year was a record for us with temperatures indoors up to 33 degrees all night long, and so far it hasn't touched 30 in our livingroom yet. According to my diary I was expiring through heat exhaustion this time last year but it started to cool down a bit later on in August :lol:

Last year was dreadful. Unbearable infact. It is no way as hot as it was last year and I have hardly had the fan on at all, lovely and cool at night, just hope it stays that way. Last year it began on the 22nd June and ended mid september with no let up. I had the aircon on and the fans. :thumbdown:

A friend showed me a weather warning for the whole of Spain yesterday for the next coming weeks. Anyone know anything about it.

It's been cooler here, so far. However, the hot weather has come very suddenly and local people say there has not been the usual time to get used to the heat. Just three weeks ago, today, I did a small 18km walk just east of where I live. I was wearing my jacket and got caught in a downpour. It was just 13ºC. By the end of the week it was over 30ºC. There's a breeze most days and it's much cooler at night, thank goodness.

Two days ago we had a thunderstorms with a few huge drops of rain. Yesterday was another storm with more rain — about 10 minutes or so. Today a storm is forecast for 15.00 until 20.00 and there are storms set for all day tomorrow. They will be welcome. There is hot weather and then there is hot weather where just reaching for a glass of something cold is utterly exhausting. I don't like that.

We often watch the weather on Antena 3 at 4pm (ish) with Roberto Brasero who shows a lot of photos and videos from around Spain and does a very indepth report. We did have a lot of thunder the other night but got only a few spots of rain. It's rare to get a proper soaking in the summer months here, but it would be very welcome.

Yes, they call it "Summer" down here. It's usually hot.

The Met Office issue hot weather warnings all through the summer. It does not mean that the weather will be hotter than usual - it's always hot. It is a health warning as the temperatures in inland Andalucia can indeed be life threatening.

The Andalucia Health Service issue warnings every year to help vulnerable people prepare for the summer heat.

It is the norm here - it is always likely to exceed a comfortable level.

Wow what a day of weather.

Started off dry and very hot. Not a breath of wind all morning. Then about 1p.m. the barometer plummeted, terrific wind laden with dust for about 20 minutes from the South West . So strong we had some minor damage. Loads of heat haze. Temperature plummeted maybe 10 degrees ,Then half an hour with heavy spots of rain. Enough to wet patio tiles but not soil. Temperature back up now. Power cuts ever since ! Wrong type of wind maybe.


Anyone else have similar?

I am very cool. Lovely sea breeze has been blowing in all day. Weird weather. Grey clouds in July! For me at least it is the coolest it has even been in a July. Long may it last.

If your in Spain in the summer surely you don’t need a weather warning unless you have a very small brain. Do they warn that its going to cold in Sweden in January.

Costa kid. Peculiar answer. I have been here long enough to experience the extremes we get. Just wondered what others have experienced today. Not difficult regardless of brain size. In fact that is irrelevant and trite.

Very odd weather today for July. Hazy most of the day and not unusually hot. Sun came out for a bit at about 4pm and the temperature hit 34.5c. Then it clouded over and rained heavily for about 2 minutes!
