Much higher than normal
Meteorologists wrote on Twitter that the temperature could reach more than 35 degrees in several places in the world.
– In some places, summer temperatures are not abnormal, like in the Middle East. In Spain, Northwest Africa, Kazakhstan, the USA and Canada, on the other hand, temperatures are much higher than normal, he wrote on Twitter.
The sweltering heat in West Africa, especially Tunisia, sends hot air into southern Spain, Ofehide explains to Dagbladet.
– It’s about 48-50 degrees in Tunisia, and this warm air is heading towards the south of Spain. So they will have a real heat wave on Tuesday, and then the temperature will drop, he continues.
