Heat Wave Scorches Europe As UK Reaches Record-Breaking Temperatures

Scorching temperatures are sweeping across the globe, with the UK setting an all-time heat record. 

Temperatures in the UK exceeded 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit) for the first time on Tuesday, making it the country’s hottest day on record.

Prior to 2019, the UK had only seen a city exceed 37.8 degrees Celsius (100 degrees Fahrenheit) one time in August 2003. 

In southern and western Europe, more than 1,100 people have died from the heat in the region, as wildfires continue to rage in France and Spain.

Hot records are outpacing cool records by more than 10-to-1 so far this year. Climate scientists tell CNN this concerning trend has become more notable in recent years, and is what they would expect from climate change.

“It’s fair to think that almost every heat wave that we see right now has some influence from global warming,” a climate scientist at Princeton University told CNN.
