Cordoba, situated 90m above sea level, with the Mediterranean 150km to the south, lies in the Guadalquivir valley. This valley (and river) runs westwards through northern Andalucia via Seville, and is where some of the highest summertime temperatures are
recorded in Spain.
Winter temperatures are only slightly below those of the Mediterranean coast. Most of the rain in Cordoba (totaling just over 50cm or 20 inches on average) falls during the winter months as the result of Atlantic storms coming in on the predominant westerly winds. Very little rain falls in the hot summer months.
