Just after 4pm today, Sunday, April 17, the AEMET (State Meteorological Agency) station located at Malaga airport reported that it had registered a temperature of 32.8 degrees. This is the highest reading reported across the Iberian Peninsula today.

In the Malaga municipality of Torremolinos, the 30 degrees barrier was also broken. Shortly before 4pm, the mercury reached 31.9 degrees, while in the inland town of Coin, they registered a very warm 30.4 degrees.
