Extreme global weather continues as heatwave set to peak in Europe – BBC News

A heatwave which has caused extreme weather in southern Europe is expected to peak today (Tuesday 18 July), though extreme conditions could continue for another 10 days.

The Italian island of Sardinia is expected to see a high of 46C (114.8F), while the Spanish island of La Palma and mainland Greece have experienced wildfires.

Across the globe, extreme weather has caused temperature spikes in the US and China, and heavy rainfall and flooding in South Korea.
