An extreme heat wave is taking place over western and central Europe being the second episode for this summer. Let’s have a look at the places which will be mostly affected.

On Tuesday (24/7/2019), Meteo France registered 41.2C (106.1°F) in the south-western city, breaking a 2003 record of 40.7°C.

Tomorrow (25/7/2019), the mercury will again climb to 40°C or more in areas of Spain, France, Germany and Netherlands, while most of western Europe will face temperatures larger than 35°C including southeast UK. For details please see the map below. This situation will be fairly uncomfortable due to increased minimum temperatures, which will not drop lower than 22-24°C in the morning. However, in large cities the temperature will not drop lower than 26-29°C!

This heatwave will be gradually retreating from Thursday 26/7/2019 firstly affecting Spain and France, and later (27/7/2019) the rest of central Europe. This heatwave ending will be followed by severe thunderstorms (possibly hailstorms at places) in France, north Spain, Netherlands, south UK, Germany and central/northern Italy.

Europe may face extreme weather conditions and differences from places to places the last week (24-30/6/2019) of this June with a heat wave and heavy thunderstorms.

In particular, we expect a significant heat wave, which will affect Spain, Portugal, France, Germany, eastern/southern of England, Italy and Benelux with temperatures that may reach 34-36°C. However, the temperature may exceed 38-40°C at continental places of northwest Africa, central/eastern Spain and southern/central France. At this places dust advection will take place, but this will not be an extreme episode.

The weather will remain stormy with rain episodes at times in Ireland and western/northern UK. However, some storms may affect the UK as a whole at the end of this period.

For the rest of northern countries the weather is expected around normal with some rain episodes and temperatures around the average.

Unsettled conditions will possibly occur in central/eastern Balkans, continental eastern Europe and southern Alps/north Italy with thunderstorms mainly around afternoons and evenings. The temperatures will fluctuate around normal or below.

Etesians (north east winds) will settle over eastern Greece (Aegean) and western Turkey reaching up to 60km/h over seas some days in this period.
