The Weather

We as Brits love to talk about the weather, it's cold today, it's wet today, it's hot today, it doesn't matter what the weather is we start most conversations with it. This has been going on for centuries before "Global Warming" became a thing, it is part of our DNA.

However, currently across Europe nature is suffering quite badly because of the weather.

Most of Europe will be blanketed by an oppressive heatwave as the continent suffers unreasonable warmth this week, with officials across the European Union announcing severe warnings against dehydration and heatstroke. The heat wave will be centred from Spain into France and Germany.

AccuWeather said a storm stalling over the Atlantic Ocean and high pressure over central and eastern Europe will push hot desert air from Africa northward across Europe. This setup has triggered dangerous heat wave warnings across western and central Europe for the remainder of the week.

From Madrid to Paris, Belgium, Frankfurt, and Berlin, these metropolitan areas are likely to see a multi-day heat wave, with daily temperatures around 90F-100F.

Last Year's heatwave led to increased mortality rates, lower crop yields, the shutdown of nuclear power plants, wildfires, water shortages, what could be in store for this year?
