EXTREME WEATHER AND ABOVE 30 DEGREES IN THE NORTH OF EUROPE

The spokeswoman of the World Meteorological Organization (OMM), Claire Nullis, said that the Scandinavian countries are reaching temperatures up to 10 degrees above the usual at this time of the year.

“Even in latitudes close to the Artic Circle, the temperatures exceeded 30 degrees in recent days, which is quite extraordinary.”, she said.

The spokeswoman stressed that, for example in Lapland, place characterized by snow and cold, reached 33 degrees maximun and in different parts of Norway had also exceeded 30 degrees.

Moreover, she also reported a new record in northern Norway where the minimum temperature has not dropped below 25 degrees on the night of July 18, “something that is rather usual of Spain.”

According to the spokeswoman, the extreme temperatures will lengthen the drought that these countries have been suffering since last May, “which can have a great impact on agriculture and the risk of fires.”

At the moment, Sweden is the most affected country by the fires, of considerable dimensions because its smoke can be seen from space, according to the OMM. (July, 21, 2018, EFE/PracticaEspañol)
