It's probably hotter in a greenhouse so I can't see what the temperature recorded in a stationery car has got to do with reality - unless you are a dog left in the car!

So far, August is cooler than July.

Most definately, the nights are much cooler. Even had to pull the (summer) duvet up to my ears a couple of times in the last week :oops: . The current temperature in the house is about 27 but was over 30 most of July, so it is feeling much more comfortable now. We have always thought that June and July were the hottest months here, and in August we often have cooler breezes and more cloud and even a few spots of rain if we're lucky.

I have to agree, I think it is much cooler and it's lovely, we have had 2 storms here this week and it has certainly cooled things down as well as giving everything a good clean. I always think August is cooler than July..

Hi HKM,
Not quite the storm we had then, village cut off with mud and rocks, although they have "cleaned" it up still loads of mud and stones on the roads. Yet 2km up the road didn't even get any rain.

When I was waiting for the airport bus at Seville railway station on Wed at 5pm, it must have been all of 40, but then Seville is always hot.

In July on the day of the fires in Mojacar my wife and I drove up to Murcia to IKEA. The temperature recorded on the car there was 54c and when we opened the car door and walked out there was a 28 mile an hour wind blowing. It was like walking in a fan oven. No wonder many fires were started that day.........

This last week has been incredibly humid during the day. Perhaps it's because the nights have been cooler - we've had heavy condensation on the car some mornings. I am damp all over ..... mmmmm ..... perhaps too much information there :shock: :oops: (no it's not just 'my age' - OH is suffering too). Just walking around the pueblo this morning has finished me off and I had to come home and jump in the pool to cool off. It's pretty yukky really :lol:

Yes, August is always more humid than July or June.

The temperatures in August so far are just lower than July but it is the hottest August for about 6 years - almost exactly equal to last year.

The reason it is more humid is that the sea temperature is still rising so more water evaporates causing thunderstorms and high humidity.

Hi there, spoke to an elderly gent in Gib today, he said it was so humid that all the ladies were trying to adjust their damp skirts when they stood up and as he put it "trying to separate their damp knickers from them!"

Not according to the official weather records. In Cordoba it has been very slightly cooler in August with slightly higher humidity.

A very slight increase in humidity with lower wind speeds can make an amazing difference to the perceived temperature.

50% humidity in Sabinillas coastal area, according to a neighbour who has a hygrometer.
Any more and it'd be raining!

Here in Benamargosa it feels just as hot as July, but the thermometer tells the tale. It is not as hot. Close, but not as hot. It is the perceived temp that is higher.
