Hottest and driest June in over 50 years
By:
thinkSPAIN , Thursday, July 5, 2012

JUNE this year has been the fourth-hottest since 1960, with average round-the-clock temperatures throughout the country standing at 22.7ºC.

This figure is skewed by record lows in the Navarra region, and León and Valladolid in Castilla y León, of 1.7ºC, 3ºC and 3.6ºC respectively, and below 5ºC in Galicia and the Basque Country – elsewhere, the mercury soared to the high 30s and low 40s during the day.

The most sweltering climes were seen on June 26 at Córdoba airport, when thermometers rocketed to 44.1ºC in the shade.

This was closely followed by Alcantarilla (Murcia) at 44ºC on the same day, and Murcia city at 42.5ºC on June 29.

In the provinces of Valencia and Alicante, temperatures frequently rose to between 33ºC and 38ºC in the shade throughout the month of June, barely dropping below 22ºC to 26ºC at night.

And rainfall was half the amount it usually is in June, making it the driest since records began.

Only two centimetres of rain on average was recorded, and this was only because parts of central and southern Spain saw regular showers.
