The Spanish heatwave has verified across the Iberian peninsula this weekend, as a large omega blocking pattern has established and is resulting in a significant warm advection into southwestern Europe.

Many weather stations reported mid 30s peak afternoon temperatures yesterday, Sunday. It was 35 °C in parts of Portugal and up to +36 °C in Cordoba and Sevilla, in Spain! Another very hot day is today and possibly tomorrow!
A deep and large upper low is located over the Azores, while high-pressure system strengthening over the Iberian peninsula, France, and the UK. This has then resulted in very warm and stable weather across western Europe.

+36.5 °C – Las Cabezas de San Juan (Sevilla)
