What is a 'Spanish Plume'?
A 'Spanish Plume' is a nickname used to describe a weather situation in which a large southwards dip in the high altitude jet stream develops to the west of Europe encouraging a deep southerly wind flow.
This pushes hot and humid air from Iberia north and north-east into northern Europe, including the British Isles. Combined with heating from the summer sunshine, this can encourage thunderstorms to develop.
The strong winds from the jet stream help to organise the thunderstorms and can aid in their severity.
