Europe heatwaves

How bad is it? 40 degrees in countries like Germany is crazy. What happens to the Alps?

On a little more serious note, it will not become as hot in the mountain areas (max. 35°C and a lot less in peak regions) .
Even if it has been snowing and raining quite a lot in the first months a big weather related issue here still is water shortage. As last year it might become again a big problem for smaller and remote communities.

Re: Europe heatwaves

We're getting hotter summers and more tropical days (30+ degrees) here in the Netherlands too. I liked it at first but I was kinda worried how fast the groundwater level was out of order after a period of draught. It still hasn't gone back to normal. That's bad for agriculture.

Didn't stop me from having a nice day at the beach yesterday.

Re: Europe heatwaves

here in Brittany , it's as cool as can be where I live , it's not even 25... whereas every other place in France is dying under the heat wave (35/38)

for instance, 44 degrees C are announced next Friday near Montpellier (south-east) where I usually spend a few weeks in July so hopefully that heat wave won't last too long

Re: Europe heatwaves

3 days with more than 30 degrees in Germany is not exactly a heatwave.

This morning I even had to put on a pullover, cos temperatures have dropped over 10 degrees over night.

Here in Northern Germany, the reservoir dams are 60 - 84% full, so no concerns.

Re: Europe heatwaves

Yes, it's hot. Which is how summers are supposed to be.

The climate lobby is desperate for sensationalist stories.

Not going to carbon-date you but based on that reply I'm going to say you're not old enough to know that it wasn't this bad 2-3 decades ago, even a decade ago actually. To try and pretend like global warming isn't a real thing is like trying to pretend that those black rocks in front of the nuclear power plant weren't pieces of graphite from the exploded core at Chernobyl.

It is a severe heatwave for large parts of Europe.

Coschen in Eastern Germany hit the German temperature record with 38,6 degrees for June yesterday. France and Spain are very likely to break all time records from 2003 given these weather maps (above 25 degrees in 850hPA is just insane) :

We've always had heatwaves.

I'm not denying the global warming, but it's a severely misunderstood phenomenon.

Re: Europe heatwaves

What happened in 2003? Why was it so hot back then in June and not every year since?

Re: Europe heatwaves

A climate specialist at the UK's Meteorological Office, Grahame Madge, told the BBC that, while weather variations occur naturally, the world was around one degree warmer than pre-industrial levels and, as a result, extreme weather was becoming more likely.

"Now when we get a heatwave, it is likely to be a degree or so more," he said. "They are still extreme events, but they are also becoming more frequent."

The highest recorded temperature in Europe - 48C (118.4F) - was measured in Athens in July 1977, but on average the 20 warmest years since records began have all been within the past 22 years. The years 2015-2018 make up the top four, according to the World Meteorological Organization (WMO).

And you are the proof of that.

Thankfully for those minds that are not polluted with far right propaganda the reality of the situation is actually pretty clear. One can only hope that the countries of this world can act quickly enough to prevent the impending catastrophe that is facing us.

Sadly, fools like you don't help.
