What is your overall decision about this article?
Are the selection criteria for the stations well explained? Or, if this project does not have to do with time series met. stations, are the premises of the project well thought out and explained? Is it a topic of special interest? (It doesn't have to be, but if it is, say so).
The station is appropriate for the report i.e. specific to Madrid and covering, in detail, the time period of interest.
The first paragraph of the Analysis section (IPCC climate sensitivity of 3 degrees) should perhaps have been in the Introduction, to clarify what the predictions of the Global Warming hypothesis were.
Are the conclusions of the report quantitatively supported by the data?
The conclusion is honest that the rise seen is in the same ballpark as the prediction, but that further, or wider ranging, analysis would be required to give more confidence in the predictive model.
Are the data stations well quality-controlled?
The analysis of the data is well documented, and could be repeated, or applied to other similar data sets for comparison.
