African heat will hug the Mediterranean



  • There are two days left to the last week of July, without recording a significant heatwave over southern Europe.

    It has been a mild summer so far, often dynamic, under the effect of the Azores anticyclone.

    Obviously, we got warm days but without excesses, holding temperatures near the average.

    However, according to the latest forecasts, warmer air coming from North Africa is ready to take revenge on the Azores, bringing the first intense heatwave of the season over the Mediterranean.

    Therefore, from Monday we expect a sensible increase in temperatures over most of Europe. They might touch 40 degrees across some southern areas.

    It will be hot along most of central Europe too. Travelling from Spain to Eastern Europe, temperatures will be above average, especially during early in the week, then the Atlantic perturbations will be able to bring variable weather, among clouds, rainfall and sudden sunny spells.

    Are you ready? Let's get started to think about a good remedy to refresh ourselves.
