The heat wave that affected much of Europe during the summer of 2003 also had a strong impact on the Mediterranean coast of the Iberian Peninsula (IP). The aim of this study is to place the instrumental context and determine the exceptional or unexceptional nature of the heat episode which occurred between June and August 2003 by analyzing a series of maximum and minimum temperatures adjusted to the daily scale, corresponding to 5 stations distributed along the Mediterranean coast of the IP, located from north to south in: Barcelona, València, Alacant, Murcia and Málaga.
