  • Immagine.png

    A strong heat wave is about to invest much of central western Europe and will bring with it truly remarkable temperature values.

    In fact, the + 28 / + 30 ° will be touched at 850hpa (1500m) on part of France and Spain with consequent record values on the ground.

    Also the west part of the Italy could be reached and and exceed 40 degrees on the ground stripping every previous record

    The cut off present on the Portuguese Atlantic is responsible for this hot African ascent and, in the coming days, the further sinking of the depression towards the south will increase the African warm air thrust towards the north.

    In some areas the mix between humidity and heat could create serious health problems for people with high risk of illness or even death.

    France, Switzerland, Spain, italy, Germany and Austria

    These regions will be the the most affected by this fierce heat wave. The temperature will reach values between +24 and + 28° at 850hpa for several days, especially in France, Italy and Spain, where even during the night it will be very difficult to find refreshment.

    Belgium, Holland, Czechia, Poland, Hungary and Slovenia and south England

    Even these areas will reach remarkable values and in some cases some records will be exceeded but the heat wave will be transitory with strong thunderstorm breaks.

    During the transition phase between the very hot air and the colder air from the north it will be essential to follow the forecast updates because these areas could risk strong thunderstorm events due to the accumulated energy.
