The high on the mainland on Sunday was 43.6 in Don Benito, Badajoz, Extremadura. All regions, with the exception of Murcia and Valencia, had highs of 40C or more. In Cantabria the high was 43.0C, and this was probably the result of the effect of the low in the Atlantic, which has been situated to the west of Spain, has been pumping hot air and is pushing it further northwards.
