BBC Weather: Blistering 40C highs scorch Europe as temperatures spike ‘well above average’

BBC meteorologist Tomasz Schafernaker warned viewers that some “very hot weather” is currently affecting southeastern Europe. The weather presenter noted that it is taking place from the Balkans across Turkey to the eastern Mediterranean. Temperatures in some areas are “well above the average” for the time of year.

Mr Schafernaker said: “Temperatures will reach in excess of 40C, which is more like the middle of summer.

“It is very warm right across the Mediterranean at the moment.

“However, it’s not in the west across Spain and Portugal.

“In the east, it’s 41C for Nicosia and 40C for the south coast of Turkey.”

He continued: “Right across the Balkans temperatures are into the 30s or the high 20s.

“Then we have a weather front and north of that, it’s much cooler.

“So by the time you’re in Warsaw, it’s only 16C and 14C for Copenhagen.

“Around Frankfurt it will be 20C on Sunday.”

The BBC presenter added: “It is going to be warming up a little bit across some western parts of Europe.

“We’ll see southwesterly winds drawing some of that warmth from the southern climes.

“Temperatures will be back into the mid 20s for places like Paris and even London come about Monday.”

“Elsewhere across Europe, there’ll be cool conditions with showers in Moscow.

“However, it will be dry and bright in Kyiv.”
