Lithuania Temperatures Hit Record Highs Amid Baltic Heatwave
https://www.france24.com/en/20190613-li ... c-heatwave

Lithuanian temperatures have hit record June highs, meteorologists said Thursday, as a heatwave forced school closures and threatened to reduce harvests in the drought-hit Baltic region.

Kaisiadorys in central Lithuania was the hottest place at 35.7 degrees Celsius (96.2 degrees Fahrenheit) on Wednesday, the highest-ever temperature recorded for June in the country, weather forecaster Paulius Starkus told AFP.

Scientists say the extreme weather is in part a result of climate change.

"Lithuania used to have heatwaves but now they occur more often and are more intense due to climate change," Vilnius University climatologist Donatas Valiukas told AFP.

Fellow Baltic state Latvia is also experiencing unusual heat for June, with temperatures over 32 degrees Celsius.

In recent days, Latvia's western region of Kurzeme saw thunderstorms with hail damaging buildings, smashing greenhouses and tearing power lines.

Fellow Baltic state Estonia had a heatwave last week and is now experiencing rainy and windy weather.

Poland has also been experiencing high temperatures this month, which has resulted in increased air-conditioner use. The power transmission system operator PSE said that on Wednesday there was record electricity demand for a summer morning at nearly 24.10 gigawatts (GW).

If there are any Europeans who still don't believe in anthropogenic global heating, this should convince them.....

Thanks for that map, P. That's pretty crazy. Basically we are witnessing the Sahara slip into southern and even central Europe. My daughter in the Netherlands said it was 99 F (37 C) a couple days ago.

All-time national heat record set in Andorra

Friday’s extreme heat also affected northeastern Spain and the tiny Principality of Andorra, sandwiched between France and Spain. Andorra set their all-time national heat record on Friday with 39.4°C (102.9°F) at Borda Vidal. According to weather records expert Maximiliano Herrera, the previous national heat record was 38.5°C (101.3°F) at Andorra La Vella on July 16, 2005.


The catastrophic heat will begin a new assault on European records tomorrow and the day after tomorrow:



More record heat on Saturday and Sunday


Europe’s brutal June heat wave is expected to last through Sunday over portions of Western and Southern Europe, thanks to a “stuck” jet stream pattern that has allowed a hot airmass from the Sahara Desert to flow northwards into Europe. Over the weekend, numerous stations likely to set all-time heat records not only for June, but for any month of the year.

On Saturday, the most intense heat will be centered over Spain and the western two-thirds of France. By Sunday, the heat will progress eastwards, with France, Germany, Poland, and the Czech Republic all at risk of breaking all-time heat records.

Sunday is expected to be the hottest day of the heat wave for Germany, where at least 204 of 451 of the German weather service’s active stations broke or tied their June record on Wednesday. That list included 13 stations that broke or tied their all-time heat record for any month. Many of those records are set to fall again on Sunday.

At 1 pm Friday, the WU forecast for Berlin was predicting a Sunday high of 38.3°C (101°F); Maintz, Germany was forecast to be a degree hotter. Germany’s all-time heat record is 40.3°C (104.5°F), set on July 5 and August 7, 2015, and this record could fall on Sunday. The Czech Republic’s all-time heat record of 40.4°C (104.7°F) set on August 20, 2012, is also at risk on Sunday. The WU forecast for Teplice, Czech Republic on Sunday calls for a high of 37.8°C (100°F).

The heat wave will diminish by Monday, July 1, when no further all-time heat records can be expected to fall.

The temperature in France on Friday surpassed 45 degrees Celsius (113 degrees Fahrenheit) for the first time as Europe wilted in a major heatwave, state weather forecaster Meteo-France said.

The record was set in the village of Villevieille in the southern department of Gard, which registered a high of 45.1 degrees Celsius. The previous record stood at 44.1 degrees Celsius in the same area during the notorious August 2003 heatwave, Meteo-France told AFP.


https://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/ ... record-45c

The World Meteorological Organisation in Geneva said 2019 was now firmly on course to be among the world’s hottest ever years and that 2015-2019 would then become the hottest five-year period on record.



All-time June Heat Records Fall in 5 European Nations


Europe’s brutal June heat wave is less than half over, but all-time June national heat records have already fallen in five nations. Extreme heat is expected to last through Monday over portions of Western and Southern Europe, thanks to a “stuck” jet stream pattern that has allowed a hot airmass from the Sahara Desert to flow northwards into Europe.

Wednesday’s all-time June national heat records:

Poland, 38.2°C (100.8°F) at Radzyń; previous record 38.0°C in Wroclaw in 1935.
Czech Republic, 38.9°C (101.3°F) at Doksany; previous record 38.2°C at Brno in June 2000.
Germany, 38.6°C (101.5°F) at Coschen; previous record 38.5°C in June 1947.
Luxembourg, 36.8°C (98.2°F) at Petange; previous record 36.1°C on June 22, 2017.
Principality of Andorra, 37.8°C (100°F) at Borda Vidal; previous record 36.0°C in June 1935.

Update: an all-time June French national heat record of 42.3°C (108.1°F) was set at Gropsierres on Thursday. Previous record: 41.5°C (106.7°F), June 21, 2003.

Do these temperatures qualify as wake up consequences? To really shift the mind set we need some deaths... High numbers. That would be consequential...

Otherwise yeah, folks will just claim this is weather.

I am sure there is misery at the moment hanging in these temperatures. But does it hurt enough?

Unlike North America, Europeans mostly live without air conditioning. At least that was the case when I lived there for 10 years in the 80's From my recent visits it seems to still be the case.

If you are in your 80's in an apartment with no air conditioning and you get those extended 37 degree heat waves many will die. That was the case in the 2003 heatwaves. Mostly older folks living in apartments and homes with no air conditioning.

I'm in western France. Like most people here we don't have air conditioning. The main problem is not so much the daytime temperatures, it's the nighttime temperatures. The last day or two the night temperatures have only dropped to about 25 C, so it's not possible to really cool the house down. By Thursday evening the temperature indoors had risen to 30 degrees; at 10pm it was 30 degrees inside and out. Thankfully yesterday was a bit overcast and so cooler, and this morning (Saturday) we have had a pleasantly cool 19 degrees.
Over the last two or three nights ceiling fans in the bedrooms have made sleeping possible.

Air conditioning is becoming much more common in France, and will become even more so as the French government pressures everyone to stop using fossil fuels.

Take care of yourselves, Euro folks! Take showers and sit by a fan.

We're gonna have temps in the upper 90's F (upper 30's C) here tomorrow, with high humidity, and that will be plenty bad enough for me.

Forecasters called June 29 the coldest day in Moscow for 70 years
