BBC Weather: ‘Extreme’ heatwave warning issued as Europe set for SEARING temperatures

BBC Weather forecaster Louise Lear said the weather across Europe is unlikely to change much over the next few days. She said there will be extreme heat in the west of Europe, with some warnings being issued. The southeast of Europe will see similarily high temperatures with areas just short of 40C.

There will be scattered showers across the continent due to a weather front moving southwards from Scandinavia, however, it will remain dry for many.

Ms Lear said: “It is a quiet weather story across much of Europe at the moment.

“But heat is the feature, particularly for the Mediterranean.

“It is not unusual but we are starting to see warnings for some extreme heat developing across Iberia at the moment.”

“There is potential for a few sharp showers to develop across the Alps.

“We have also got a weather front moving its way out of Scandinavia.”

Ms Lear noted that southeastern Europe would also see hot temperatures during the week.

Some areas in eastern Europe could see temperatures as just shy of 40C but may also experience some showers.
