Heat makes history in Spain as September records fall

Spain's weather agency says some places in the south of the country are smashing September heat records, with one site near Seville logging 45.4 degrees Celsius (113.7 Fahrenheit).

The agency said Tuesday that Cordoba airport also surpassed 45 degrees Celsius (113 Fahrenheit) this week, while 10 weather stations across the south measured temperatures above 44 degrees Celsius (111.2 Fahrenheit). More than two dozen weather stations registered record heat on Monday.

The agency said on its Twitter account that Monday was a "historic day of heat" for September.

Southern Spain is known for its high temperatures in summer, but September usually brings cooler days.

The weather agency forecasts lower temperatures from Wednesday.
