In southern Europe, it’s currently raining only one thing: red numbers. The Spanish weather service has declared a code red in part of the country after several heat waves. In Italy, the mercury is currently rising toward the old record for temperature: 48°C.
Temperatures are also increasingly extreme in the rest of Europe. Where you were looking for a sunny thirty-degree beach in Provence, it’s now about ten degrees warmer for large parts of the summer.
According to scientists, the average temperature in countries such as France, Italy, Spain and Greece has risen by almost two degrees in the past 100 years. In the short term, this means more heat waves, wildfires and prolonged summer droughts. In the winter it can get much colder and snow more than we are used to.
“it’s too hot”
The majority of 74 percent of respondents in today’s statement found going on holiday to southern Europe less attractive. “Very hot,” someone replied. Another voter says: Last year in central France it was 37 degrees. It won’t happen again. Really not nice. ”
Someone else brought something to avoid the heat. “I would like to go to southern Europe, but not in the height of summer, and so go in early spring or autumn.”
