Abstract. The climatic information recorded by the physician Francisco Fernández Navarrete in Granada (southern Spain) during the first third of the 18th century is analysed in this work. Observations are included in the book Cielo y suelo granadino (Sky and soil in Granada), and consist of qualitative comments relating climatic conditions to illness and diseases since 1706, as well as instrumental observations (using an English barometer and a Florentine thermometer) from December 1728 to February 1730. To the best of our knowledge, these are the earliest instrumental observations recorded in Spain. The analysis shows that seasonal mean values of temperature and precipitation during the period 1706–1730 were very similar to those of periods of similar length at the beginning of the 20th century, as 1906–1930. However, some years were especially extreme, such as the dry first half of the 1720s decade, or the winter 1728–1729, when a strong cold wave affected the city.

Short summary
Climate of Granada (southern Spain) during the first third of the 18th century is reconstructed. Results suggest that climatic conditions were similar to those of the first decades of the 20th century, when the global warming signal was of less importance than today. In addition, the manuscript presents the instrumental data taken in Granada the year 1729, probably the first instrumental meteorological data recorded in Spain. Some extreme events, as the cold wave of the winter 1729, are studied.
