This work presents a new source of documentary data on the Spanish climate from 1792 to 1808 coming from the periodical Correo Mercantil de España y sus Indias, in which weekly summaries of Spanish weather conditions were published. The potential of this data source for historical climatology studies is analysed, focusing on information related to the south of the Iberian Peninsula.
