Europe sweats as another record-breaking heat wave rolls in

Lisa Micheal 71 Jul 24

Widespread alerts warning of medium or high heat have been issued across many countries in Western, Central and even northeastern Europe.
Weather forecasters in the UK say the country will sizzle this week in a heat wave that could set a new record for hottest day. Temperatures will peak on Thursday, when the mercury could reach a sweltering 39 Celsius (102.2 Fahrenheit), according to the UK's national weather service, the Met Office.
The hottest temperature ever recorded in the UK is 38.5 C (101.3 F), recorded in Faversham, south east England, in August 2003, according to the Met Office.
