Some parts of Europe, including Spain, France, Germany and Holland, saw record-breaking spring temperatures up to 26 °C. Paderborn in Germany broke the previous 9 March record by 10 degrees — 23 °C compared to 13 °C in 1997 — and Maastricht in the Netherlands beat the previous record of 15 °C by six degrees. Santander in Spain recorded 26 °C.
In the Natural Colour RGB on the north west area of the image the cloud boundary shows the separation between the cooler maritime air and the warmer air from the south. Also on the image the snow on the Pyrenees and the Alps can still be clearly seen (cyan colour), as would be expected at this time of the year.
