Data from Spain’s State Meteorological Agency said the potential new record was recorded at Montoro, Cordoba, at 5:10pm.

If confirmed, that would exceed the country’s previous record of 46.9 degrees Celsius (116.42 F), set nearby in July 2017.

In fact, according to the Spanish meteorological agency, El Tiempo, this is nowhere near the record, which was 47.8C set in 1976 in Murcia:

It would also appear to be statistically no higher than measurements of 47.0C at Seville and Badajoz in 1946 and 1964. Either way, an increase of 0.2C over 70 odd years is hardly cause for alarm!

No doubt these older records will be quietly shelved.
