For me this is truly scary, how anyone can deny global warming in the face of this is beyond me, is this summer going to be the new normal?

I read that there is big concern in Spain for the weekend with breezy conditions at times adding to the fire risk. Hopefully no repeat of what happened in Greece recently.

Along with the heat coming up off Africa, Spain Portugal getting a lot of Saharan dust as well.



Some heat. I would be jumping on a plane home I think.

The Portuguese Met have a statement on their website correcting the 50-degree max temperature forecasts automatically generated by their model on their website and app. Good to see this sort of thing being published.

Highest max today listed on ogimet is 44.7C at Badajoz on the Spain/Portugal border, 44.5C in Seville so still quite a bit off the record

42c (rounded) reported on the 14:30 METAR in Lisbon airport. The all time record is 42c, so looks like it could be beaten.

43c reported at 3pm, so the record has been broken.

That old record is only a year old, set on the 17th of June 2017.
