30 gradi a Malaga, 31 a Londra, 34 a Roma, 38 a Madrid. Un’ondata di aria calda si estende dal Mediterraneo verso l’Europa occidentale provocando un aumento delle temperature e l’arrivo prematuro del caldo estivo.

Temperature sopra i 30 gradi nel mese di giugno sono state saltuarie negli ultimi decenni, superando in strane occasioni i 40 gradi in alcuni punti del continente. Tuttavia, gli esperti avvertono che da non ridurre di immediato l’utilizzo di combustibili fossili questo fenomeno potrà diventare abituale, con ondate di caldo ogni volta più frequenti nei prossimi anni.
